How Many?

More than 240! That's how many ends there were to weave in!

2. That's how many buttons.

1. That's how many buttonholes I sewed closed (see above) when I could find only 2 matching buttons (of several types) that would work.

Yes, even with an enormous button stash. The ones I wanted to use were too big or too flat or the wrong color. Or just wrong. Just because it's for charity doesn't mean it shouldn't be perfect.

It needs a wash and block, but the knitting is done and the ends are woven.

Next, I start the alterations.

Then I do the resolutions.

Then I tabulate the FOs for 2006 and the yarn knit up and such.

Then I lie down.

But first, it's off to the Lifestyle Center (the new name for "shopping center") to return a book that the Other Half bought me for Christmas. Why? Well, because I bought him the exact same book.

Then to the grocery store. For soft food. Because I chipped a filling. On my front tooth. Again.

Happy New Year!


It is really cute though! Awesome job.
That sweater is gorgeous, congratulations!

And so sorry about the tooth. Eep!

My verification word is "fryzoz". Sounds like a new food ...
The sweater is so colorful and will certainly bring cheer to a child. But, oh dear, you must learn to work the ends in as you knit!

Hope the tooth can be painlessly repaired!

Happiest New Year!

The sweater is stunning! You are to be commended for sticking with it (especially with all the hassles and those ends!).

Sorry about your tooth. That's a bummer. Hope you can get it fixed soon. Happy New Year!
