Homework – done.
Dinner – done.
Laundry – done.
Knitting time – you have got to be kidding me!
Who’d of ever thunk that I’d find myself at the end of a day and not wanting to pick up a knitting needle and while away the time knitting.
That day has arrived, gentle readers.
My brain is officially fried.
Last night I gleefully finished my edited version of Sonnet – Sonnetina. And, then I went to get the buttons to sew them on. And, they were not in my knitting bag….
Okay, maybe they are in the other knitting bag….
I could not find those buttons anywhere.
My vest could not be finished…. Alas, poor Yorick!
Alas, poor Wallet!
Yes, I had to stop and purchase 3 more buttons today after school to finish my vest.
But, it is now completed – and I have proof. These buttons are divine – as well they should be as they cost me almost $5 a piece!
Okay – without further adieu – I present to you Sonnetina!
The required “in the mirror self-portrait”…
amazingly expensive glorious buttons. See the little “peplum-ish” added edging – I like how this turned out. I think it will lay flatter when I block it. But I am so wearing this tomorrow! Blocking, be damned!
Again – note the buttons! FIRMLY attached to the vest. There will be no loosing these babies!
And finally – a nice view of the neck – both inside and out. And – one last shot of those AMAZING buttons.
So, I will leave you with the specks of my Sonnetina.
Cast on – Friday January 18, 2008
Finished – Monday January 28, 2008.
Yarn – Now discontinued Classic Elite Gatsby
Needles – Addi 10 1/2 for body of vest.
Addi 13 for applied i-cord.
This is truly the fastest thing I have ever knit and I am so happy with the end result.
Now, I think I hear Bonnie and Clyde calling my name…. stay tuned.
