A Tart in Progress

This has been my current project.  I called it "My Saucy Tart".   The yarn is Madelinetosh DK "Tart     The pattern is Favourite Cardigan, by Wendy Bernard in the book Custom Knits  It is a very different colour for me to choose, red and black.    I have done a few modifications mostly in the length of the body and as you can see I am now working on the sleeves which in the pattern is short sleeves, so I will be making it full sleeves.  Works much better for me.   I'm still skeptical of this size, I seems so small, but it is a fitting sweater.   This will also block bigger, so I will wait and see.

Have a great weekend everyone.  

And this our life exempt from public haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in every thing.
