i’m trying to avoid sudden buying of things, without thinking for a longer time, if i really need a particular new thing. i don’t buy yarn just because it is beautiful. i have already planned projects in my mind, i know what would i make, how would i wear it, and so on. well, sometimes these plans do fail.
in last weeks of summer 2010 i’ve bought some blue yarn. i was planning to knit a dress for me; i love knitted dresses so much for winter; i have one from last year, i will show you someday.

ok , so, let’s get back to blue yarn. i went to shop having idea of dress and found this yarn. i must admit, i’ve made an emotional decision here, i loved yarn not (only) for the colour (that actually fits me), but also for the description of the colour: “colour of heathberry”… i found this lovely 🙂 and yes, i’ve bought this yarn, even if i saw it’s too thick for a dress i was planning to knit…
i started knitting immediately after coming home from yarn shop. i tried to use different knitting needles, but it did not seem to be nice in any way… so i put this yarn to my cupboard of knitting materials, to wait for better days 😀 you see, i don’t like to push myself, knitting must be a pleasure for me. if one project failed, it is hard for me to unravel it, i better put it deep and forget for some time. when my mood is back, i take this failed thing and make something again 🙂
…this blue yarn did not have to wait too long.
i wanted to have a vest for winter. thick blue yarn seemed to be perfect for it. for some time i was searching for inspirations in internet and i decided i want a short-sleeved cardigan with huuuge neck.
so you can see the final result here on right. and now it’s time to explain, why the title of this post has a word “impatience”. i wanted to show you my vest-cardigan as a part of full outfit; for that i need to buy a long sleeved grey top. in these days, i have no time for clothing shops. on the other hand, i like this cardigan so much, i wanted to upload it to my blog immediately. for two days i was struggling and controlling myself. …..and today i’ve lost this fight :D.
i absolutely like my this cardigan, it is soft and really warm. i like the colour that fits me, i like it’s shape, how it is longer and going sharp in the bottom. it is bit loose, i feel cozy inside of it. ……but my most favourite thing of this cardigan is – of course, big neck. as i had really enough of yarn (you remember, i was planning to knit a dress), i could make the neck as big as i wanted. the neck has four buttons, so, i can change the way it looks :
different looks of the neck, depending on number of buttons used

as you see, i’ve added two metal buttons, “invisible” ones, just so make the cardigan fit nicer on me.
step by step i’m getting ready for the winter…….
