So, this sweater took a whole lot longer than I thought it would. The actual knitting (and a bit of crochet) was rather quick – I was just distracted by quite a few other projects along the way.
This was to be my New York project. . . ready to wear by the holidays. (Green and sparkly seemed fitting for the season.)
But there were more exciting things to occupy my time than a pair of knitting needles in the big city.
Then it took some time to find the perfect buttons.
The devil is in the details.
After all of that, I am very pleased with the finished product. So much, in fact, that I think I may have to make myself another version . . . perhaps in cotton . . .
