Ruffles Cardi debut

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.
