A couple of months ago I went to the Healsville craft market with Bee, my craftiest (non-knitting) friend. While we were there I saw this button, which I knew would be perfect for the Shalom Cardigan. As well as being pretty, it's made of recycled parquetry flooring.
It was a remarkably quick knit, I started on Tuesday and had it finished on Sunday. I guess that's the advantage 12 ply and sleeveless, and not having to attend work! I left off the waist shaping because I thought that would help it hang better, which may have been a mistake. It's a comfortable cardigan, perfect to wear to work, where it is a little to warm for a jumper, but too cool for shirtsleeves.
