I used size 9 needles, did a ribbed button band, and waist shaping. I used Manos Del Uruguay Wool in the Mulled Wine Colorway. This sweater is warm beyond belief. It is snowing outside today, and I work for the corporation whose doors never close, so it will be very instrumental in keeping me warm on my journey into work.
Sewing on the buttons last night.
Here are the pictures I took before I left the house to go to work.
Sidebar: Thesoapyknitter (Rosi G.) left a comment yesterday that got accidentally deleted because I was checking blogger on my phone and the screen is so small that I clicked the wrong button. Her words were "GO!! GO!!". Rosi, I did it! Thanks for the encouragement.
Happy Knitting everyone! I gotta scram. Have to catch a delayed bus to get to work.
