Button, button, who's got the button?

That's what's next on this beauty. (What a difference a week makes!)

I'm quite pleased, frankly. This pic is a bit gappy, but that's 'cause there's ten stitches in the center front that will be lost to steaking. Call me twitchy, but I'm not going to steak until I'm ready to work the button band, and I'm not going to work the front bands until I have buttons.

The end is in sight! (Please ignore that it was 103*F (according to the thermometer on the south side of my house) yesterday, and I'm finishing a wool sweater. Okay?)

Awesome! You should get extra points for knitting a wool sweater in a heat wave. :)

Beeyoutiful! Now, get thee to Button Emporium to find the perfect ones. And splurge on really nice ones. This is a sweater you will wear for years so get the ones you really want; even if they are unreasonably expensive. If you don't, you'll regret it every time you wear it.
