Wildflower work in progress

February 29, 2012

The scalloped edging is easy to make.
I'm making excellent progress on my Wildflower Cardigan.  I'm through with the back and sleeves and now working on the fronts.  I'm just at the spot where you add the pocket lining to the pocket front detail.
The pocket was so fun to make.  See the little bobbles?  We knitters dearly love to make bobbles, but we also know they look ridiculous on most garments.  Here is one exception.  These are just teensy and just a few, isolated to the pockets only.

My husband loves me to wear bright pink.  I was certain he would approve of this Easter hopeful.  When I asked him if he liked the color, he said he would like it a little brighter!  Brighter?  Huh?
