Buttons, Buttons, where are my Buttons?

The other day I was showing a friend all my completed knitwear. To my horror, I discovered that NOT ONE finished cardigan included buttons, or closures of any sort. No wonder I've been struggling with how to wear them!

So now there is a new sheriff in town - the button/closure sherrif! For the forseeable future I want to only make cardigans with closures!

First up - Fireside. This one is in hibernation. It knows what its done (darn sleeves).


I'm also working on Ash. This one has a zipper, which I've been wanting to try in a knit for a while. So far, it's going well.

My Dark and Stormy cardigan is on a break because I've used up all the yarn I had. As soon as I get more yarn, I'll finish this up...just have the sleeves and collar to go.

In other exciting news - one of my knit design submissions has been accepted! I'm just waiting for the yarn to arrive to get going on it. I should hear back about a few other submissions in the next few weeks. Yay!
