Finally Finished and New Hat

I'm finally finished with the Lush and Lacy Cardigan from Sweaterbabe. I honestly don't know why I dragged my feet on this. After an discouraging start, things started to go smoother. Then, I think I got bored with it and started a few projects in between. I finally decided to pick it up again only to find out I don't have enough yarn to finish it. I called the LYS but they didn't have the right color! Darn, but wait...don't I have another skein in my stash? Yes, I do! So, my goal was to finish it by Thanksgiving but I'm a day over. That's okay. This cardigan is sure worth the wait. It's absolutely beautiful and I love it. It's a good fit and I love the color and design. I used a size 9 needle to knit this cardigan and a little over 3 skeins of the Cascade Superwash in violet. I wish that the photos came out better! Here's a few more photos:

And the back:

On my short road trip today, I decided I was going to "crochet" a hat for Jasmine. Something quick and easy. I measured her head and with my size N? hook in hand, I started to crochet away. I basically did what I felt like it and ended it when I thought it would be big enough. I'm glad to say, it was a success! It actually fits her.


Now...I have to search for a new project to do! Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!

Your cardigan is gorgeous! I especially love those front panels and the button! Where do you usually go to buy buttons?

Thank you! I'm happy with the way it turned out. The button is from walmart, I made it into a pin. I'm not sure where else to go to buy pins and buttons!
