The Future Cardigan and a Rescue

future cardigan

Leftovers often make the nicest things, be it a tasty meal or a comforting cardigan. I'm not exactly sure if I'll end up liking this combination of odds and ends, but I am having fun in the making of it. Dale of Norway Heilo, is a sturdy old fashioned yarn that says, not surprisingly, "Norway" to me! I'm going with the old familiar feeling of a hand-me-down sweater, but with a little shaping. I love the almost too bright, retro red, love the sensible blue and wish the yellow were a bit less gold, but hey, thats what you get with leftovers.

Now what do you think, should I throw in the green, like I always do, or surprise myself and leave it out?

Below please find a follow up to the adventures of last weekend.

The primary colors you have going on look great! I say go with your gut and skip the green this time around. =)

I kind of think the green already looks like part of the family!

hmmm hard to say about the green. i think maybe leave it out. I like the too gold yellow. It balances out that bright red. It looks like it will be a cozy and fun cardigan to wear.

I had Cerignola olives last week that were that green. Maybe you could knit up a bunch and keep them in the pocket of the sweater?

I have no input to give on the color choice, but I'm looking forward to seeing how it comes out. Everything you make is adorable!
