Button, button, who's got the button?
I finally came across some neat leather buttons that I think might work. Hancock Fabrics' 40%-off buttons sale did the trick: for less than $7, I got ten buttons. Even if I don't use them now, they'll work someday on something, so I snapped them up. My plan: finish the sweater and see which looks better, the pewter or leather buttons. If neither work, I'll go back to the drawing board. But I suspect either would be just fine.
Now for the good news: I've only got three inches of stockinette to finish and I'll be done with the bottom of the sweater. Thank goodness. I'm already daydreaming about doing the fair isle on the sleeves. I can't wait to do something - anything! - other than boring old stockinette. The light is at the end of the tunnel. Grace of God.
