That's right - more cardigan talk!

Meh. I still can't decide what to do about the froggy stripe cardigan. Which led me to, ahem, purchase some more wool... make this!

I'm incorrigible! But it's so cute, and I couldn't resist. (Oh, and how cute is that little girl? And she has a bird - a bird! - in her hair. Love it! Hmmm, wonder if I could get away with wearing a bird in my hair. D'oh, digressing) Besides, I would be failing in my motherly duty if I didn't make sure Grumbles had something warm to wear over winter, so, really, I have to make it. (Did I convince you? I convinced me!)
However - there is to be no knitting of pink yarn goodness until I finish the final sleeve of this. Not even to swatch. Dems da rules. Feel free to run over my cat if I break them (gah, alright, so I don't own a cat, but let's not quibble).
Oh, and pattern is from the Phildar Pitchoun Automne/Hiver 2006/7. And it comes with an English Translation, phew.


  1. I can't believe the number of cute and stylish patterns you dig up! I must be looking in the wrong places.

    As for the bird, I have a couple gracing my egyptian-style lamp all year round but never thought of wearing them in my hair, can wear anything as long as it's with confidence (the confidence helps you to ignore all the rolling-about-laughing everyone else is doing at your expense). But if you do it, I will!

  2. That cardi is delish !

    I can't imagine wearing one in Melbourne for some time though

    ( Autumn ? you've GOT to be kidding me ... i'm off for a sweat-reducing, buckets of water saving, shower. Stat. )
