I finished up the project I wrote about here.
I had intended this sweater to be for a boy, but hey, I might use it for a girl as well. Loved the teal color and, turns out to have a few very light purple hues~so it could work. How cute would a wee little lass be with a teal and brown polka dot bow in her hair to match?!?!
Went to buy some matching buttons for it (and about swallowed my tongue at the prices of buttons!) and then remembered about the button box recently acquired by Aunt Nancy. They aren't the most lovely buttons in the world, but I think they suit it just the same. And they were free.
Gotta remember that button bin in the future. (Don't think it will be too hard to remember now that I know the price of buttons!)
For all you knit/crocheters out there, I have a question: I have heard of something called "blocking". Is this important? Is the shaping permanent? How is it done? I did notice the brown lining looks slightly cockeyed and wondered if blocking would help? Just curious.
