The back of Josephine is done and I am still loving her. I'm a little uneasy about the measurements, but have decided to trust the pattern instead of altering things - after all, I did go through the trouble with this one to buy the right yarn in the right gauge, didn't I?
Lucky for me, I had an appt with the Insurance Division of MA on Weds, so there were a few hours of steady knitting time. I was hoping the beach might also work, but Zoe's got other plans for me this summer. So, maybe one more week and Jo here will be ready to wear?
And this is where I am with all the buttons - after weeding out a big bunch for a friend who does button art. The baggies are the fancy buttons - metals, rhinestones, pearls. I tried to be brutal, since I only HAVE three tins - and one lifetime in which to use these up....
Ironically, my next sweater (sizzle) has no buttons.
but guess who bought some vintage ribbon on ebay last night?
