C3 Cardigan

This morning we had to drop the kids at one of the Christmas programme practice really early.So we all went ,grabbing a quick breakfast from MacD.DSCN3764

Dh and I planned to shop later at IKEA.
I wore my C3 Cardigan .
This one was long done and was hibernating coz first I could not find the right buttons for it and then I wanted to do a shot wearing it .Which never happened because I was just plain lazy!
The yarn was from Shanna. I had previously abandoned this project when I made it with Knit Knit yarn.The drape of this yarn is so nice.
Project Details: 
Yarn:  8 skeins Classic Elite Yarns Cotton Bamboo Colorway 3620 Trellis Green Dye lot
Hook : 3.75 mm
Pattern :C3 Crochet Crop Cardigan .
Tid Bits :
I had just enough yarn to finish this cardigan although I did not want to have sleeves after I saw Rima’s C3 Cardigan. I also followed all her notes : did not change the needle size, and also increased the body length.
The inverted V in the front is a happy coincidence and I’m so happy it worked out perfectly.
The yarn was just enough to complete it.
Did you see I wore my Saroyan scarf too?!.
I always feel extremely self conscious when I wear something I made outside. I finished this cardigan  long back..Every time , I’d take it out to wear and then decide against it and put it back in , then wear something else. This time I got brave Smile
However I was the only colourfully dressed person in the sea of brown and black and cream and blue dressed people in the Mall and felt like I was in a fancy dress or something  Open-mouthed smile
DSCN3769 After we went to the  practice venue, we learnt  there was a slight change of plan so M came with us too.
He told us he’d be on his best behaviour and kept his word totally!  DSCN3778
The IKEA people and I think alike I guess, I’ve been obsessed with hearts this Christmas.I didn’t get any coz I’m making my own Smile
It was fun having M with me today .We picked out scented candles after smelling every candle scent and deciding that  our all time favorite apple cinnamon was the best.
