While I was away on holiday I took a complete break from both sewing and the computer.
It was something that I needed to do and perhaps something that I should do more often (especially the computer part).
I really enjoyed it and it definitely added to the relaxation of the holiday, but it left me in need of something to do in the evenings. Luckily I had the perfect project. A bit of selfish knitting in the form of a Tea Leaves cardigan.
The yarn is Red Riding Hood Yarn in the colour Flight of the Griffin. Its a really gorgeous shade of deep jade green and I love it!
The knit was pretty straight forward (except the part where I ran out of wool and had to make the sleeves 3/4 length- oops!).
My biggest source of indecision in the making of this cardigan was the buttons. I found these cute bicycle buttons in my stash but I must admit that I am not completely committed to them. What do you think? Should I replace them with something subtler?
