Stick a Fork in It...



...because Acer is officially done. In exactly two weeks, including blocking and buttons. Woot!


Speaking of buttons, I am gradually coming to the realization that the ones I just sewed on, though gorgeous, are really just too heavy for this light and lofty yarn. Hence, I can't get a decent, non-gappy picture of me wearing it :(


So, eventually I will need to swap these buttons out, but for now I'm going to just sit here in a pleasant state of denial and enjoy my finished sweater. And have a cocktail.


Obviously this plan gets the official Frisky TM seal of approval.


Tomorrow I'll be watching fireworks, the Pops, and Neil Diamond (that's right, Miss abby) and working on my Lacy Baktus. Hope you enjoy your 4th too!

Most excellent! And the buttons are lovely; I hate when something like that doesn't work. I don't doubt that you'll find a good substitute, though.

Congrats! Lovely sweater. Did you alter the neckline at all? Some photos that I have seen, the neckline looks big, but yours looks great. This is one that I would like to make sometime. Very nice! Nice looking pooch you have there too! Sofee agrees.... :)
