See, I have been knitting. I did this one pretty quick, so no progress posting. I made this for a friend at work who is expecting in August. She doesn't know if it is a boy or girl, so I had to go with a gender-neutral palette. I thought the buttons would add just the right accent color. After I got them on, I realized what a pain pointy buttons are to slip through garter stitch button holes. But they sure are cute (click to see the larger image). I must have bought at least 10 different buttons because I couldn't decide which to use. Of course it never occured to me to take the knit to the shop. Now I need to find another baby to knit for so I can use up my cute new button stash!
Tomorrow, a new project and a knitalong.
