when last there was knitting content on this blog…

the buttons are temporary. really.

which wasn’t that long ago, I was working on my Shalom cardigan. Well, I finished it and I like it! I spent a day or two knitting and ripping the same 4 rows until I got the armholes to open at the right spots for my body. As written, the armholes go way into the back, which I didn’t find flattering. I’d love to show you how this looks on me, but there’s no one around to take a nice FO pic, so that’ll have to wait. I have to find permanent buttons, too. The ones there now are an amalgamation of a few things that function, but don’t suit the sweater.

By the way, I am grateful to Ysolda Teague for her Liesl, the sweater which made me like wearing sweaters again. This silhouette is a really great one for me, so I knew Shalom would work as well. Not everything I’m going to knit from now on will be top-buttoned with shortish sleeves, but don’t be surprised if you see this shape on me again.

    Very nice. This sweater has been on my list for a while, but I don’t tend to knit with that weight of yarn (and I am a bit too lazy to remath it out for a lighter weight) so it has been patiently waiting for me to pick up an appropriate yarn.

    Thank you for your inspiring posts, I am going to give this one a go.
    I have been knitting a Patons Pattern for a similar garment,and am so frustrated, I have the correct tension and have knitted half way up the back, but the garment will fit an elephant, do they test these patterns??? Ripping it down today!!!
    On we go….
