I fell for this cardigan that Gudrun Johnston has designed for Brooklyn Tweed! I also happened to have lots of brown tweed yarn from a stranded project, and thought this project would be a good way to use it. The buttons are made of pewter, and are normally used on traditional Norwegian cardigans. I think it turned out really nice, and look forward to wear it! (So far I'm sticking to my new year's resolution!)

Happy new year to you all! I hope you've had a nice holiday. Maybe you even managed to do some knitting? I think I knitted three stitches in total, as we've been busy visiting family and being ill. I'm just about back in shape now, and I'm ready to get going on my projects again. A few weeks ago I was getting a bit frustrated about the amount of projects going on at the same time. They clog up on me, as I like having a few going on at the same time for variation. But too many just keeps me from finishing any at all, so I decided on having a New Year's resolution. I am going to be better at focusing on, and finishing my projects. I will ignore my restlessness, and keep going! Right now I have quite a pile of work waiting for me, so there should be some finished garments popping up here sometime soon.
