Back in Basic Black

Simplicity 2560 view A, it will have the sleeves from view B when I finish it tomorrow.
I used Simplicity 2603 for the shell.

The pattern didn't call for a button but I had to figure out a way to use this button because it matched the shell perfectly. I can't take credit for the closure idea it's used on one of the many other cardigan patterns I purchased.

The cable sweater is almost finished. I'm adding ribbon to reinforce the front bands before sewing on the clasp.

I'm happy with the way it came out, I used the Shrug This pattern and made the sleeves longer and added the cable to the bottom.

It seems like I haven't posted in forever and life just kept moving right along, my DD turned 28, this is her hang over picture. Yea, the t-shirt it says what you think it does, what can I say, I didn't raise her like that.
My GS is playing football, too cute. They won 32 to zip.

So cute.

I'm so happy to have my computer back, I even have a back-up because that can't happen again.
