FO Friday – Tomboy Cardigan

Tomboy cardigan
A Simple Homestead - Tomboy Cardigan

I feel like I’m cheating on this Finished Object Friday.  You see, I wouldn’t consider this little gem to be quite finished yet.  It still needs buttons.  And it really could use a good washing and blocking to straighten all the stitches out.  But somebody was excited when I said it was hers and she couldn’t wait to put it on.  Ok, I admit.  Mama was a bit excited too and really wanted to see her model it.

Don’t you just love the “strike a pose” attitude?!

I ended up making the cardigan a little long.  Partially because I wasn’t paying attention, just kept knitting, and all of a sudden I was a full inch past where I needed to stop.  I didn’t want to rip out what I had just done … besides, which Little Chick growing as much as she is, it’ll be better to have it longer.

That caused a problem though.  I still had the collar and the sleeves left to knit and only a small ball of yarn left over.  I think I might have been ok because the sleeves didn’t use up as much as I expected, but even so, I took Papa’s advice and used white to make the collar and sleeve cuffs.  I love how it turned out!
