FO: Buttony!

It's late, and I'm tired... but that's a good thing. I forced myself to finish the Buttony Sweater, which I am currently wearing proudly, despite the fact that it's fairly warm in our apartment. I'm hoping that staying up a bit later (ok, let's face it... the other night I was asleep by 9:15) I might actually sleep past 4:30am tonight... keep your fingers crossed for me!

I'm also too tired to go through the whole process of using the digital cam, etc to photograph the sweater right now (especially since the lighting won't be that great anyway) so I used my mac cam to take a couple of pictures. I'm tired, and the lighting is bad, so they aren't the best pictures ever, but I couldn't wait to share!

As you might have guessed, my order from Webs came in, which is the only reason I had enough yarn to finish up the second sleeve and sew on the buttons. OH! The buttons! I almost forgot! They're from Woodturner on etsy. Custom made, inexpensive, and he was kind enough to make 3 extras (the Buttony Sweater calls for 12 total) so that I could pick and choose which ones I like... PLUS, if I ever loose one (or two, or three) I have extras!! YAY! (Wow, am I tired...)

As I was saying, webs order came and an etsy package (which was ordered at the same time as all the rest... but only showed up today)... more on those tomorrow!! (Errr... today??? or whenever... It's past midnight so I guess technically tomorrow is now today... or something.)

The sweater really looks nice. You did a fine job. It really sets off the buttons nicely. Thanks for linking me to your blog.

Nice looking sweater! I do LOVE the buttons. Nice work Charlie! You stayed up all night and I crashed by 9:30. Haha! I teach Tues/Thurs and somehow by the time I get to Thursday afternoon I am completely exhausted. Hope you got to sleep in past 4:30 am!
