Sweater pictures



So, I am mostly done with my lilac colored sweater. I say mostly because I need to sew on 2 buttons and I might rip some of it out. If I decide to redo part of it, it would be the collar and button bands/buttonholes. I don't know yet. I'm going to wear it for awhile and decide in another week or two. It's not as fitted as I wanted it to be, but a few tucks/darts here and there might help it. I love how it feels, it is so soft, and I love the buttons!! I didn't get a good photo of them, but they are almost the same color as the sweater, with a cluster of inset ivy leaves, kind of a cream color. The way they are iridescent makes me think they might be abalone or something like that. No sun out today, that's why I am in the bedroom taking this picture.
