After my last post, Beth commented on my urge to cast on a new project - "castonitis" and wondered why we don't get "finish-itis". Considering this project was waiting for buttons and I had them and was too lazy to sew them on, I took Beth's musings to heart.
Here is my Mondo Cable Cardigan FINISHED with buttons. I got these at JoAnn Fabrics and really think they go well and add a bit of interest. I looked at silver, wood, horn, matching dark plum and ended up with these funky ones.
Here's how it looks on - love wearing wool with shorts and a t-shirt.
I did however give into castonitis and started and finished a Shalom Cardigan for Miss America. It's blocking now and after we get a fun button I'll show you pictures. It was a fun, fast, mindless knit.
Now, back to my finish-itis - have two sweaters almost done and need to finish them.
