Tempest!!!!!!




Finished, from choosing yarn to wearing in 6 days!!!!! I'm really pleased with it, I like the colour, although I did have some trouble lining the stripes up in the small stripe section...... just due to the similarity in coolour I think.
I used almost 100g of the Main colour and doubt I would have had enough for the second size, despite the pattern suggesting I would iyswim.....
I like the buttons, and think they look fine, but they're too small to stop the cardi from popping open but I doubt I'll wear it closed anyway.
Now I just need to think about my Tour de france project:-)

It's lovely!! I love everything about it!

It's on my to-do list but my main hurdle is what yarn to use. Your choice has worked really well. Is it Yarn yard yarn?

I like your buttons too and the size looks just right - if you wanted to fasten them you could always sew the buttonholes to make them a bit smaller but don't change the buttons!

Kathryn, it is yarn yard yarn, the tsandard socks which is called bonny now.... I was in the sock club plus last year, so you got 100g of the contrast colour to the club yarn, and they go really nicely together. I think I'd like a neutral coloured tempest for the autumn:-)
