Almost a finished sweater.

Emerald is finished. Ends weaved in (well, most of them) and everything. All it needs is a quick steam blocking and some buttons. As you may remember, I changed the gauge up a bit (4 spi from 3spi). I actually suceeded – it fits, it fits well, and I am in love the shawl collar (the short rows are genius).

Which I didn’t get till today even though I finished the sweater last Sunday. I had a hard time deciding on which ones to get.

I went to MJ Trimmings (next to Bryant Park – and it’s Fashion Week! It was nuts!), and found the buttons I wanted in about a minute ’cause I had already picked them out online. They’re simple wood shanks, and I think they’ll be perfect for the sweater.

 

I’ll sew them in this weekend, and have pictures by Monday! Hurray for finished sweaters!
