WIP Wednesday: Blooming Apace!

Much happy progress on the Buds and Blooms cardigan! Behold:

Headed toward the shoulders.

The color looks excessively purple under the Ott light.

And the closeup is closer to the true color. One of these days I’ll figure out how to properly make color corrections in my digital photographs. But not today.

At this point, I’m about 2/3 the way through the second skein of yarn, with five more full skeins left, so running short of yarn shouldn’t be an issue. This is a very good thing, since Schaefer no longer makes this particular yarn, or any other yarn, actually. They have gone out of business. That’s too bad, because this stuff is marvelous to work with. It feels almost like velvet on the stockinette portion.
