Welcome! Glad to see you all here in my new home. I hope you like it. Feel free to let me know what you think! Sadly I can’t change the template of the site very much, as it’s a WordPress.com site. If I ever get round to registering my own domain, then I’ll go for a hosted site and let lose the CSS!
At long last, I have the buttons on Alice’s Rossbeg, and the weather has been nice enough to take some photos!
Not Alice’s best pose, I have to say. I don’t know what she was doing with her face! But it’s all about the cardigan anyway. Isn’t it gorgeous?
Here’s the back:

And the yoke:
Yarn: Donegal Yarns Aran Tweed, 7 skeins
Needles: 5mm and 4.5mm
This took me a week to knit, and another week until I got the buttons! I think I put too many buttons on though, I think 8 is too many. If I were to do this again I’d probably only do 5 or 6. But, apart from that I think it’s perfect. It does fit Alice like a glove so I think she’ll only get this winter out of it. I better make sure she wears it all the time!
She loves it, I love it, so all is well in knitting land.
