Although I started this cardigan without much conviction, the end result is very satisfying, I look at it on the mannequin ( Miss Mercromina) and I really like the look of lace and the sensitivity of the point chosen in combination with color. It looks very romantic and delicate.
I finished all the selvage of the cardigan with a point that simulates scallops, so when I was thinking how close it, I decided I´d better not be something original to the usual buttons, I searched through my stash and found some gold buttons shaped thimbles, they are perfect!! I only link a small chain including two and I got some simulacrum of cufflinks. Original and effective!
I have three balls of yarn left over this. So I was thinking... they are not enough to make any other blouse or top, but I found this chart from expatbeads and I thought this would be the perfect beret for the cardigan, now I have only to look for a dress for it.
For breakfast on Christmas morning I prepared my family some cupcakes that have a very easy recipe, I know they are a safe bet and when I cook, they don´t arrive until many hours later, thinking about the date that is I have chosen a booties shaped mold Christmas . You can try them, I assure you, are exquisite.
