Grey Goodness..

by Kate on January 20, 2011

I get the warm and fuzzy’s everytime I look at this cardigan, it is just so tiny.

Grey Goodness..

I’m quite taken with it.

Hooked with the soft Zara and fastened with some beautiful Liberty buttons. I love the buttons, they were gifted to me by the lovely Mel…gosh, nearly a year ago?!

Button Detail..

Project details can be found on Ravelry.

Collar Detail..

Super excited to be Creative Spacing again. Pop on over to Kirst’s to get those creative juices flowing and while you are there, take a look at her ‘noticing’ series…some stunning images.

OH. MY. GOD. Super amazingly GORGEOUS Kate!! And you know what? I bought myself some of those buttons too and keep wondering what to use them on. Maybe I'll send them to you and you can use them on another one (wink wink)?

The colour of the yarn is to die for by the way – STUNNING all of it!

I have never been particularly fond of crocheted clothing vs. knitted, but this really looks great, maybe I will take a second look at it!
