CU buttony
Originally uploaded by ducksRfriends

My first sweater!!! I’m making the buttony sweater from Oh My Stars, inspired by the lovely miss PocketT’s various versions. Aunt Anna gave me the yarn… I have nine balls of lovely blue green alpaca. I don’t know if it will be enough for the sweater, but if it isn’t I’ll buy something that will look good with it for the bottom of the body and sleeves. I need to buy some #10 dpns for the sleeves (I’m using the interconectable circular set for the body, but I’m not sure the best way to use a circular for a small circle… dpns are easier to keep the tension even for me.) The color isn’t quite right on this photo, the sweater is much greener. My oh my, it will be warm! I also got some jars of buttons from Aunt Anna, so hopefully I can find a bunch in there that are the right size for the sweater. I think its going well… I can’t stop working on it!
