Clement Street, and buttons!

The Wee Girl and I had the morning together without the Boy, and we started it out with a bit of shopping on Clement Street, specifically at Park Life and Green Apple Books. I found scores of amusing items…

After Clement Street, we hit up Imagiknit for buttons! I found just what I wanted, and also found adorable ornaments that I’ll have to keep in mind for next year.

I think the buttons are perfect for my Honeybee Cardigan!

Hopefully I’ll get some modeled photos soon!

Honeybee, phew!

When I tried on my cardigan last night, it did not look good.

It looked way too low, and with some trepidation, I I powered through the neck and shoulder short rows.

Luckily, it worked! It fits and looks nice. The only trouble is that I did one of the 3-needle bind offs backward, and I need to fix it. Otherwise, yay!!!

Honeybee cardigan, THIS close!

I’ve been working pretty steadily on my Honeybee cardigan, when time and attention span have permitted. Today I reached a milestone; the point where I’m done with any decreases and just have to do several sets of short rows to shape the front and back shoulders.

Phew! I tried it on, and the fit is weird but I’m attributing that to the fact(s) that the short rows aren’t done and the top part hasn’t been blocked yet. AND there will be button bands and a neck edging… Fingers crossed!
