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.
