Fun with mini sweaters
The urge to finish knitting projects is upon me--instead of starting more and more and MORE new things, this seems like a good time to knock off the final stages of some of the in-progress sweaters that have been piling up in my big basket.

This one, "Flutters," already has a home. The yarn is recycled and re-plied cashmere, and the other charmpoint is the itty-bitty flock of butterflies that are pretending to be buttons. Three cheers for the Etsy sellers who find amazing materials for me to play with!

This is "Sugarplum," knitted from a stunning handspun yarn (silk and Bluefaced Leicester wool) and again sporting vintage Czech-glass buttons, all sourced from more Etsy shops.

Too much fun, I have. And because aoi_no_neko reminded me, here's the link: http://www.squirrelmoonknits.etsy.com

I finally thought of trying some different stitches on the hem and cuffs of my bog-standard old biscuitbear cardi pattern . . . plenty of bang for very little extra mental effort, heh. That particular lace pattern is really nice; I had never used it before, but it will probably show up pretty often from now on. ;-)

I really love the effect! :D
