My birthday was beautiful and I feel blessed.  As a gift to myself I finally, finally, finally sewed the buttons onto my Calligraphy cardigan and blocked it and I’ve refused to take it off since it dried.  It still needs pockets.  I need more pockets in my life.  I’ll get to it at some point.  Unfortunately the buttons seem a bit too small or the holes have stretched a bit too much, either way I might have to do something about that as well.  But none of that is stopping me from wearing it constantly.  The yarn is Swish Worsted in “Doe” (I believe this color has been retired).

I just finished reading The Winthrop Woman.  It was most enjoyable.  I had trouble putting it down.

    Happy birthday! Your sweater looks so comfortable and it fits you well! I just finished one that’s not quite right so I’ll have to fix up the neckline.
    I like the little rose necklace. Was that a gift? It looks vintage.

    Yes, it was a gift. My favorite one! From Steve. It’s Edwardian, over a 100 years old.

    I didn’t make any adjustment to the collar. Honestly I love the sweater and wear it all the time. I’ve never worked with those indigo yarns, so I can’t say! Although the sleeves are fairly fitted and cotton doesn’t tend to have a lot of stretch to it, so that’s something to consider. You might want to work in a little extra ease. Of course if you have quite slender arms it might not matter at all.

    happy knitting,
