Crossing things off the list...
Eight buttons. That's what I need to call this one DONE!! Poor thing... it is a motley combination of yarns and design. But, I think it is going to become a snugly and comfortable old friend.
I didn't totally escape the crochet obsession... Couldn't help but add a little crochet shell edging to the collar.
The picot edging on the sleeves was part of the original pattern I started using... then there was the addition of a garter border... then slits on the side... then buttonholes... then a shawl collar... then crochet edging to that. I'm even thinking of some after-thought pockets as it is blocking on the bed.
It really bears no resemblance to the sweater I was originally making... Isn't that how life goes sometimes?
My friend, Patrice, gave me this little ornament for Christmas. Makes me smile sitting on my desk.
1099s are ready to mail out today. Sweater ALMOST finished!! I like it when things get crossed off the list.
