Presenting...Peasy!

My Peasy cardigan is complete! 

It was off the needles a few days ago but searching for just the right buttons took a little while.  The choice came down to two and the saleswoman said these were more like a boutique button than the other ones.  I must also add that these were the ones R found...my choice didn't rate the 'boutique' label.

I'm very pleased with my Peasy, I think it's my nicest knit yet.  Thanks to Heidi Kirrmaier for the wonderful pattern!

  3. Beautiful! When I saw the title I thought Peasy was an abbreviation of Easy Peasy, but now Isee how intricate the knitting is it is anything but!

  4. That is lovely! It's a gorgeous colour and I like the wee lacy bits at the top. Perfect buttons, too! (Though I'm sure your choice were nice, too! :o) )

  6. verity, The beginning had me a bit perplexed at one point but then it was smooth sailing. I just kept telling myself to take it one line at a time...then it really was Easy Peasy!

    Penny, Thank you, the colour is called Duck Egg which made me like it that little bit more! My choice of button blended in perhaps too well with my cardie...these show off how pretty they are *smile*.

  8. Vintage Reading, Absolutely...for now the only place I'll be wearing it is the freezer section of the grocery store!
