I'm absolutely in love with this cardigan. The pattern is so well-designed, knitted from the bottom up in one piece and set-in sleeves from the top down. Plus phoney seams too.
Another good thing about this project is also the yarn, sport weight silk/merino blend from Avril that was enabled by Olga and Joujouka (thanks again, ladies), that are no knots and which I used less than 1 hank, hence minimal ends to hide in. Nothing to sew except the buttons! The i-cord neckband still curls, but that's my fault because I didn't steam block it as I'd wanted to. Procrastination. I was apprehensive at first right after finishing this as my gauge was completely off and the negative ease was just much more than planned but I managed to squeezed myself into it as you can see.
Here I am, on the way to breakfast with husband before work.
So this is the haunt that my husband and I usually go to for breakfast before work, a very old (as you can see from the decor), family-run coffee shop in Sheung Wan. The milk tea is fantastic but now I like the 'yuen yeung' which is a mix of tea with milk and coffee. You can even ask for your preferred proportion of tea and coffee. And of course there is the 'po law yau', that is a traditional Hong Kong bread with pineapple crust on top plus a thick slice of butter. Unhealthy but yum.
