minor details about making stuff

adventures in yarn!

short and sweet is finished! it is made out of lily cotton that i found really cheap at building 19. the buttons are from the button collection of someone down the street who had a yard sale. my short and sweet existed as a vest for a short period of time while i contemplated how exactly i wanted it to be. i'm happy with it now as a short sleeved cardigan with mismatched red buttons.
the fun part of crocheting is dreaming about what's next! in the meantime, i'm working on the crocheted necktie that i'm giving ian for his graduation. it was in june, but i'm sure he doesn't care that the present isn't finished yet. despite all of the hours that i have put into it, the tie hasn't come very far. i had an entire day of swatching to figure out how the pattern and colors would work which amounted in very little physical progress, but lots of mental progress.

Great job on the short & sweet cardi... sometimes I have to put a project to the side to get a better idea on how to complete it with a twist.
