I made button bands from some grosgrain ribbon (I had to match to the colour of the buttons as there was nothing that came close to matching the yarn colour). Apologies for the following close up of my chest, but look! The buttons don’t gape!!It is such a (pleasant) shock to wear a cardigan that fits my curves without being too tight or too baggy in places, it is really making me think carefully about my next knitting project.
p.s. Since it felt too hot for knitting or crochet at the weekend and I didn’t want to be dressmaking and adjusting sweaty garments, I got my sticker collection out and sorted some of my resources. Colour coordinated threads and tools organised on my door for easy access (and minimal tidying up!).Next on my tidy-up to-do list is vacuum-packing some of my fabric!
