Dear Liesl, I hardly know you. From start to finish in 60 hours is not nearly enough time to get acquainted with a sweater.
Before we go any further, I’d like to stop and thank my husband, who took these photos and failed to tell me my glasses were crooked. Thanks babe!
I don’t have much to say about Liesl. It was such a quick, easy knit that I don’t have any notes about it. It doesn’t really fit yet, but hopefully by the time it’s warm enough to wear a lacy little cardigan it will.
It’s quite cute, isn’t it? And what’s not to love about a cardigan that only takes 400 yards of worsted weight yarn? I knit mine out of MadelineTosh Vintage in Kelp, and used size 10.5 needles.
My favorite part are the Bakelite buttons. A good set of buttons really can make a piece – or change it’s look entirely. Imagine the difference it would have made if I’d bought a pair of rhinestone buttons from the 50’s instead . . .
