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.
