Yes!!! It's done. My lovely Tea Leaves Cardigan is FINALLY finished.
Thank you Regula, for that little push of encouragement, couldn't have done it without you!
I had many more lovelier photos of my Tea Leaves, but blogger decided to load them all sides. No idea what that was about.
Anyway, I love my new cardi. The yarn is Lion Brand Tweed Stripes. It's probably a bit too chunky for this pattern and the cardi is a wee bit big, but ever so soft. Honestly a bit of a bugger to knit with too - very splitty. I have discovered that knitting sleeves on DPN's is a pain in the @rse and purling on them is some form of torture. I struggled with the front bands, three attempts to get them even. Next time I think I might just include them in the body. The buttons are vintage ones from my stash, they came with the machine. Not too sure if they work. They look better in real life - what do you think?
I will definitely make another Tea Leaves, I love the pattern so very simple.
Of course, my flowers scarf is patiently waiting for three more flowers.
Toodles...L x ♥
P.S. Thank you for all your support with your lovely comments on my blog, I do appreciate every single one of them. Special thanks to Jane and Regula for their words of encouragement on my Middle J still being out at sea. Yesterday, via the ship's newsletter, I got my first photos of him working hard on the ship. Suddenly made it all very real that he's not longer my little boy!
