Finished!

image 
I’ve finished my very autumnal Tea Leaves Cardigan.  I actually finished the knitting late on Sunday, but there were ends that had to be woven in, then it needed blocking, and finally I had to add the buttons.  Now it’s finished and ready for a cool, fall day.  It’s knit in Madelinetosh Vintage in the (now discontinued) Grenadine color way.  From a distance, it looks like a muddy plum color, but when you get close, you can see that there’s a lot more going on.

You can also see the buttons I chose.  The pattern calls for two buttons, but I prefer three, so I adjusted my buttonholes.  I did reknit the button bands because the first ones were just too big.  I also alternated skeins every two rows for both the body and the sleeves to blend the colors better.  I usually do this with hand dyed yarns, and it was really important to do it with this yarn as there’s so much going on in this color.

Beautiful work. It won't be long before you can wear your sweater. I feel a chill coming on. (So tired of the 90+ degree afternoons, aren't you?)

You have been on a bit of a pinkish berry color jog haven't you? :) Don't get me wrong. I LOVe the colors. The sweater is beautiful. You could definitely wear it here today. Woke up to low 40s and they actually reported a wind chill!

Beautiful job! I agree, this needed 3 buttons, and you placed them perfectly.
