A sweater! Almost a(n) FO….

Look at this, a nearly completed crocheted sweater with Silk Garden Sock yarn. Something isn’t quite right though:

It’s the yellow solid wool trim. It has to go.

I was trying to edge it to help it lie flat but more importantly to add some button loops. I think the yellow looks terrible but I don’t have enough of the main yarn to add any more edging. What to do? Add ties? Ribbons? Just squish small buttons in the spaces between the double crochet stitches as a sort of afterthought button hole? Either way I am going to snip away that trim right now.

I am moving in a few weeks so I just packed up most of my yarn. Oh, and I just found out that Fabric Place is going out of business! What next?

    Yep, it’s the yellow trim… It really has something to say, and out loud, too! A dark blue or brown would do it, perhaps?

    I quite like the yellow- it brings out the more subdued yellows in the body and sleeves…though if you’re going for a quieter look, I agree with Enid on the blue suggestion. Great cardigan and I look forward to seeing the finished object!
