"Sonnet" the sweater....garter stitch with a band of a textured box stitch that you can't see because of the variagated yarn I chose. Auch well. I have never knit side to side, it is fun. Here is the right side (with the buttons just placed there), the armhole opening where the sleeve will go in and part of the back. This is so easy but I'm glad I settled on this. I really wanted something that was quick to knit and I would actually finish and possibly wear, considering the cost of the yarn I chose. So far - I'm happy.
Close-up of the buttons - bronze metal with a sun on them.
"Opal" socks, doing the heel flap of sock #1.
