All Bar the Buttons

Old films on television are perfect for knitting by.  Just as well, as 300 stitches makes for long rows that take a long time to knit.
The sewing up is all done, all we need is some pretty buttons.

One of these days, I think I'll make the long sleeve version.

To recap, this was knit using Red Cedar Wendy Skye DK, 35% polyester, 12% mohair, 53% acrylic.

That's a beautiful cardi. Love that yarn color. I can't believe how fast you knitted that one!

Very pretty.

It's lovely! You need to stock up on buttons so you have them when you need them! LOL

Very nice, even without the buttons. If it stays this cold you'll need the long sleeved one.

I agree that a movie is the only way to handle those long rows. The cardi is lovely.
