Woohoo! Buttons!!

So buttons have been found--thank you Wally World! Which means stick a fork in it, it is done!

Pattern: February Baby Sweater from Knitter's Almanac by Elizabeth Zimmerman

Yarn: Knitpicks Shine Sport, grass, 2 + a little balls

Modifications: Because this is for a baby boy, I just did plain stockinette instead of the lacy patterns suggested. I also did 10% decrease for the cuffs of the sleeves because it looked better that way. Somehow the way I did the sleeves I got "holes" at the side of each sleeve that I had to go back and stitch up. Maybe I did something wrong.

What's up next? Here is a little preview....(I couldn't help showing of my stitch markers--a special Christmas present) More details coming soon!

And as promised...springtime has hit the BR...we had to turn on the AC last night...ugh....humididy, need I say more? It does appear to be cooling off today (I know all of you in colder regions of the US hate me right now, but yesterday my mom said it was warm (40 F) People here wouldn't know what to do if that were a high!
