Progress...

So despite my best intentions, my blue sweater's not done. In my defense, I neglected it to do another form of "blue" knitting. About 2 years ago I started a knitting group in Philly called "Knitters for Choice". We had a knitting circle and sold stuff at local craft fairs. I don't live in Philly any more but the group's still alive and well and I promised to knit a bunch of mittens and armwarmers for sale at an event. Of course, I totally forgot to take pictures of what I knit, and they all sold at the event. Oh well.

Since then, I've made pretty good progress on the sweater. Body's done, now the sleeves.

The picture on the right is of my closure experiments so far. I was all excited about using leather anchors as part of the toggle closure but I think it's not quite right, so I think I should maybe just go with the button and a yarn loop. Opinions welcome.

That sweater is a beauty! It kind of reminds me of Twist but a bit different. I agree with you that the plain closure looks better somehow.

Thanks.

What's twist? All I can think of is the Twist T-shirt from Knitty and I assume you didn't mean that:)

Wow, the sweater is so pretty. I need to knit a sweater sometime in the new year. I just need to find the right pattern. And I'll be looking to you guys for support!

I think the leather is too stark here, lovely on a darker shade or on brown. Keep it simple jus tuse the toggle.
