I'll be weaving in ends as time allows today. Buttons will be sewn on this evening. Maddy will be able to model for an FO shot on Sunday! If I can nab her on the way through, that is. (The color, above, is quite a bit more true, by the way.)
I re-sewed the too-tight raglan seams on Oblique last night and I'm much happier -- much, much happier!! I also picked up all the stitches for the collar. I picked up too many stitches for the collar, but equal on both sides, so I just need to figure out the math and how to make it work. I didn't have the head for it last night and wouldn't have been able to make out my calculations through the tears, anyway. Lordy. I've never cried so much during performances and medal ceremonies as I have for women's figure skating -- so happy for Joannie Rochette, so relieved for Kim Yu-Na, so sorry for Mao Asada, so sad for all of them for so many different reasons. Wow. They're all amazing young women.
I was prepared to spend some money on buttons for My Habu Sweater last night -- it proved quite difficult, both to find buttons and to spend money. The weight of the buttons is as important as color and size -- the sweater is very light, if not delicate. It took a while, but I think I found the perfect thing! Yes, this is the cliff-hanger...
