Despite being slowed down a bit by several custom orders through the shop, the knitting is finished. It’s now button time. Isn’t amazing how drastically buttons can change the feel of a piece? I thought I had found the perfect set, but at a total of six within my collection I was shy the seventh needed to complete this sweater. So we have the runners up. I think I’ve made my decision.
I picked up The Gargoyle from the library, which Jasmine recommended in this post and compulsively devoured the entire book. At one point I found myself weighing the over-under on seriously injuring myself if I attempted continuing to read while chopping vegetables. Common sense and a modicum of self-preservation won out. That and the knowledge that one of the kids was bound to walk in on me and point out that I would never in a million years let them do such a thing, which is true enough.
