More Sleeves

october frost sleeves 5

Last night I sat down and finished knitting the last few rows of the sleeves. I'm now to the saddle shoulders which are much narrower than the sleeves and should go much faster. Hopefully the next time you see them, they'll be done. I'm hoping that after working the sleeves, I'll have a better feel for the cable pattern for the fronts and back (although I know the cables are slightly different, they are related to the sleeve cables).

In the meantime, I went button shopping. Since I love cardigans the way I do (is there a 12 step program for this?), I try to keep a stash of buttons around that are cardigan appropriate. Cardigan appropriate for me means fairly large-ish and not too heavy (don't want to stretch out the sweater) and not cheap looking. The other day I hit Button Drawer and found some nice buttons for 4 or 5 sweaters. I don't really have definite plans for any of the buttons, but I need buttons for this sweater as well as the next few I'm planning to knit so I kind of shopped with those in mind, without deciding on any one set of buttons for a specific sweater. As soon as the buttons get here, I'll show them to you.

OK, I know this is a knitting blog and I should comment on knitting, but....let me talk to you some more about Wii! Try Gamestop for used games. We have three stores in our area, and I always go there looking for used games for Wii or Nintendo DS. You can save a few bucks to spend on yarn! ;)

Beautiful sleeve!!! Do you still have one more to knit or are we just not seeing it?
I love buttons. All of mine are small though. I need to start collecting bigger ones!

Thanks for the Button Drawer recommendation. I went there, had a marvelous time, and found buttons for my February Lady Sweater.

I wasn't sure what size, so I used my Grandmother's button stash to check that out. Sadly, there was nothing that went with my sweater, but it was good to be certain of the size my buttonholes knit up.
