My new "top to bottom" cardy
While still strugling with my son John' sweater, I knitted this one for me. EASY, VERY EASY!
a sort of relieve from the hazards of the other.



Not mad about the colour, it did look better to me before knitting it, but I don' t have the guts to deep it in a dye. I wish is a bit darker or very, very much lighter.



Love to everyone,
Happy Easter!
Dolly

Oh, it's just beautiful! I love everything about it, including the color! It looks lovely on you. Is there a pattern, or did you "wing it?"

I that sweater! And, the color looks great on you. I'd be scared to try to dye something, also, especially after having put in so much time and effort into the knitting. But, I think it's just beautiful the way it is. Great work!

Thanks Slim, coming from you is a greatcompliment,
and I did a sort of "wing it", but got inspired in a pic I' d seen in picasa, but written in japanesse, so I had to do a guessing job there.

That is a beautiful sweater, Dolly! I'm not normally a blue person, but I like the color. It's perfect for spring!

I think the colour is perfect for you! Good with your skin tone. I really like this garment very very much.

It is beee-you-tiful! Wonderful color and fit on you :-) What did you use for buttons? They look like little I-cord knots?? Cute.
