Home Stretch

Thank you for all the wonderful comments about the sweater. I am so close to being done with it. I've finished the button band and collar for the left side and am now up to the collar for the right side. Then I have to sew the pockets in and weave in all the loose ends and it will be done. The collar is taking a lot longer than I thought it would. The button band and collar are on size 3 whereas the rest of the sweater is on size 7. I hope to have it completely done tomorrow, with pictures either tomorrow or Wednesday, depending on natural lighting. Well, maybe all will be done but for the buttons and the belt. I'll probably make some polymer clay buttons sometime this week.

In other knitting related news, I ordered a couple of patterns from White Lies Designs over the weekend - Bella and Heather. Id like to point out that I did not include patterns in my diet. Although once I finish this sweater, I might break down and order some yarn for the Shapely Tank Top. I'm getting in spring mode because the weather is much too springlike for the end of January. It's 60 degrees for crying out loud. Where's my snow? I know, I should be careful what I wish for, but I just want a little. Just a little cold weather so that I can actually wear my new, really warm sweater.

Those White Lies Designs are so beautiful! Can't wait to see them knitted up- especially Bella. I love the romantic feel of those tops. And how awesome are you for making your own buttons to go with your sweater?! Looking forward to your pics! Take care! :-)

I too like White Lies Designs. Very feminine and flattering designs.

Polymer clay buttons? Yesterday I searched the net for information on making these little gems...Then I decided "I don't need another project" (or anymore tools) and so I went out and purchased the button I needed :-)
