Aw, the secret’s out! I took the ruffles cardigan with me to Vancouver – it was a surprise birthday gift for Ande. I know – her birthday isn’t until July, but I finished it and saved myself the price of postage. We took it out for its debut at the Memphis Blues BBQ House:
The sweater fit her perfectly (and I was torn bringing it to its new home – I love how it turned out) but I think the buttonholes need some reinforcing as the little 1/4″ buttons were slipping out. I did one row of crocheted ruffles on each side of the button band. It would look great with two, but I just couldn’t face doing another set of ruffles as it was killing my wrists and shoulder. I plan on making myself one.

Sabrina and Apollo will chow down on grass in the back yard, but their BC cousins prefer leaves!
Bathroom is T minus one day, I think. Looking just fantastic!
