diminishing rib cardigan! (sort of) completed...

i finished the diminishing rib cardigan in the new interweave knits. i say "finished," but i have decided it really needs some buttons. i just can't do the open, swingy thing with this cardigan. it gapes open rather unpleasantly, so today i'm off to the local yarn store for more yarn for a different project, as well as 4 sassy, chunky buttons. will post photos later, promise!

this was knitted up with lion brand cotton ease in hazelnut. i am a little in love with the color... it reminds me of spring dirt. yes, dirt.

also! self-portrait thursday seems to have officially moved to friday. i just never think about it on thursday! we'll see if i cycle through every day of the week in this manner.

3.13.09. the day after the bonnie 'prince' billy show. fantastic.

although he didn't play this song at the show, i had forgotten how much i loved this song. palace music, new partner.

in other knitting news, i'm almost done with the back of the frond pullover. i am hoping to be in love with this sweater - if i can figure out how to do the "frondy" parts...
