I found buttons for my Clayoquot Cardigan by Tin Can Knits. I finished the button bands last weekend. I plan to steam the sweater to set the button bands and I'm planning to put it in the dryer with my towels when I wash them to see if I can get it to shrink up just a bit more. One thing I have learned with super wash yarn and sweaters is that I probably need to go down a size to account for the "grow" factor. My next sweater is the Lush Cardigan, also by Tin Can Knits. It already calls for 2" of ease so I will definitely go down a size. Pretty good match on the buttons, huh?
While I was at JoAnn's I picked up some yarn (cause I don't have enough). I got a skein of Scrubby which is used to make kitchen scrubby cloths. It is to be crocheted. I've looked at it several times and decided to try it out.
And these two skeins of Deborah Norville Everyday yarn. I liked the colors, its soft, its acrylic and anti-pill. I know it won't be really warm but I could use a long cowl for a slightly warmer day that I am looking more for decoration than warmth. And its pretty... It is worsted weight. And its pretty...
That is it for this week. I'll leave you with a shot outside my office window. I love the view. Just as the sun came over the mountain. Be good to each other!
