Not much knitting going on these past few days at Chez Dim Sum. We’ve had a full schedule of end of the year stuff, carnival, soccer games, practices, rehearsals, picnics, parties and concerts. The little bit I was able to do was the button band on CPH. At least that part is done. That means all of the knitting is done on CPH now. It’s all seaming and weaving in ends now. My favorite… not.
Here’s a closer look.
I just realized from this close up picture that the ribs don’t line up with each other. I picked up a lot less stitches for the button band than in the directions. I think I’m supposed to have 308 and I picked up 234 or something like that. I think I’ll leave it because I barely have any knitting mojo left for this baby.
This weekend, Sweetie Boy and I chose buttons for it. We narrowed it down to four different styles, and here’s what we chose.
A nice traditional, dark brown leather button. I like.
