NaBloPoMo Day 7: cardis almost finished and started

Last night I started the second of two cardigans I’m knitting for my nieces for Christmas. (My brother and sister-in-law might read this blog but I assume my 8- and 6-year-old nieces are still too young to do so. Hoping anyway.) Anyway, the first one for the 8-year-old is all knit, I just need to sew the underarm seams, weave in ends, and sew on a button.

The second one looks like this.

let's get this cardi started!

Now that I’m trying to photograph this yarn color I see why I was lead astray regarding the color. It is more of a raspberry pink but it looks orangey in these photos. The color is much more accurate in this old progress photo.

Well, I was also lead astray by the color being named brick/cassis. It’s very much not brick but it is a nice color for my nieces. I hope they like their sweaters!
