Getting On with It

With snow squalls raging outside this afternoon (in between brief bursts of pale winter sunlight), I'm forging ahead with Isabel's "Fusion" cardigan in Quince's Chickadee with "Frank's Plum" as the main colour.

This is one of those stitch patterns that gets radically transformed by blocking. See how the fabric looks in the grey version? It reminds me to slow down and wet block the current version before starting in on the fair isle border. Undoubtedly, there's going to be some growth in the length department.

I'll use the hiatus to scrounge around for some more of these little buttons.

They're so perfect with both the grey and plum variations. Stay warm!
