Finished at last! (and not too many mistakes)

I started knitting this cardigan for myself last January. Then I found out I was pregnant and got too poorly to knit. I revived the project towards the end of my pregnancy and managed to finish it all except sewing on the buttons before baby turned up. Now at last I have sewn on the buttons and can wear my creation with pride!

Its nearly perfect - I made a mistake in the moss stitch on the back - but I can blame that on the baby brain, and I can't see it when I'm wearing it so have chosen to pretend it isn't there!

This is the pattern in case you were wondering.

p.s I've just noticed my sleeves are way shorter than on their pictures. No idea why.

I have just added a new cushion cover to Little Green Button. I do love a cushion cover - both making them and using them. They are a great way to add a bit of colour to a room or tie a theme together. This one has toadstools on. I also love toadstools!

You can buy it here.
