i begin with a knit

pattern: tea leaves cardigan
designer: Melissa LaBarre for Madeline Tosh
yarn: Blue Sky, suri merino
colorway: earth
needles: 3.5 mm and 3.75 mm
mods: used smaller needles than recommended to arrive at a smaller fit

I think it is a good omen that I can begin 2010 with a post that comprises a finished knitted piece. This pattern was truly enjoyable and I love the finished product. I am not certain about the buttons, I just sewed them on today - but knowing me, I won't change them. I should post a link to the pattern, but for the life of me I can't remember how to do it, so you can check my ravelry link to get the link or you can email me for the info.

I take this as putting my left foot forward (being that I am a lefty it is my 'good' foot) into the new year! Tomorrow I am back to work and so it begins......
