I made good progress on my Olympic cardigan today, finishing the right front. So that leaves the left side, two sleeves and the collar to complete within the next 10 days. I'm feeling pretty good about it.
My problem right now is that I can't find a suede ribbon to tie it with. According to the pattern, I will need 1 yard of 1 1/4 inch brown suede ribbon for the closure. I already checked a few local fabric stores and Wal-Mart without success.
Any leads on where I could get this online? And get it delivered before the end of the games? To Canada? My plan B is to use a grosgrain or satin ribbon. Plan C is a button and loop.
The picture above is not that great today so you might not have noticed my Valentine day cupcake (or worse that the picture shows off both the completed back and the completed right front).
But back to the cupcake, it was a treat from my honey. He also got me chips, cherry blossoms, a strawberry-rhubarb pie, and a pizza and cesar salad dinner. What's that they say? Never grocery shop when you're hungry? Plus, I think he feels bad about his trip ;0) Pie makes up for everything, doesn't it?
With all this junk, I sure hope the sweater fits when it's done! We've been ordering out since the Olympics began... Thankfully, it's just 2 weeks every other year. Cooking will resume when (a) the sweater is complete or (b) the games are over. Whichever comes first.
