Here's an impromptu project that I did a couple of days ago to break the monotony of some of my other more involved knitting projects. You can read the project details on my blog The Knitting Mill.
Great project, Mill. Glad that you can knit again. I liked that pattern when I saw it but haven't anyone to make it for. Still, good to have in the back of my mind in case I need a fast gift. Really enjoyed your blog, too. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
Thanks Joe! It feels GREAT to be knitting again!!
You are most welcome. Good to know you are much better. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
Oh! I like it! It would make nice gifts.
It looks great and it sounds like you made it your own! Glad to hear you are also able to knit again.
Very beautiful. The button sure adds the right touch.
Very nice. And it looks like a great little project that wouldn't take much time. You could do a bunch of them for christmas presents (if you do christmas). Did you do a proper button hole? Eli B.
Thanks! Yeah, I had the same idea about Christmas! I figured when it's only a week away and I get over my denial of being able to finish 5 jumpers or lace shawls before C-day that I'd whip out this pattern and crank them out. It only took me about 3 hours or so with a few interruptions. You know what, I think buttonholes always look pretty crappy no matter which technique I use, but for this project I implemented EZ's three row button hole with a couple of modifications. One day I need to have a buttonhole practice day and try to come up with the best looking one from comparisons. Happy knitting!
