Thanks to everyone who commented last week about my knitting setbacks. I'm happy to say that I fixed the problem. I've now got 2 matching button bands and all of the buttons sewn on properly! No pictures yet, but the sweater fits my daughter and that's all that matters.
This week I'm knitting a scowl. One of my friends designed this cowl last fall and has been wearing hers all over town. I loved it so much that I'm finally making one for myself using a skein of Dream in Color Classy "Happy Forest" that I've had sitting in my stash for about a year. I'm in love with this color and wanted just the right thing to show it off.
I'm still working at Pride and Prejudice. I've got about 100 pages left. I'm really enjoying the book now but just not finding much time to read. I've been participating in the 2nd Annual Knitting and Crochet Blog week, so I've spent most of my reading time on other people's blogs.
Thanks to Ginny at small things for hosting another Yarn Along. And if you're reading this, please feel free to comment and leave a link to your Yarn Along post.
