Another FO

For the last month or so I've been working on slanted-sleeven using a Vintage Purls sock yarn in a lovely silvery grey shade. It is to go with a dress as I always find it is not usually warm enough in the evening to do without. The pattern had me flummoxed at the start; I think because it is written in the European style. Anyway after a bit of intensive reading I worked it out and have to say it was very precise and quite easy to work from once I had figured it out. The cardigan is a top down, seamless construction - I am always in awe of anyone that thinks these up - they are a lot of work. I kept the length quite short to go with the cinched-in waist of the dress. I finished it off with some little silver buttons - $1 from Shop on Carroll (our local upmarket op shop that has lots of great buttons).

I am also working on the larger size of the Hodge booties - they are irresistible. And I love the colour which is a mix of an orangey red and pink - another Vintage Purls sock yarn.
