Button Up


Hi Knitters,
I dug out these little copper colored ceramic buttons that I have had for years. I love the creamy center and the copper glaze rings. It's funny because at times when I photograph the sweater it has looked so green but in person it doesn't read green much at all. It is much darker. The colorway is called, Burnished. There is a copper-tone running through the sweater which is why I chose the buttons. These photos show the color pretty accurately.

I've added the bands running down the front.
It is shaping up nicely. The sleeves are left and they are knit in the round on US size 7 double-pointed needles. This will fly!


On another note, I have an interview and free pattern from Itty-Bitty Toys available in the new summer issue of Knit Circus. Check out Knit Circus here!
best, susie

Love the sweater, think I'll get the pattern. I've started my very first sweater and it's going well. Gives me confidence to try a different pattern and I think this is it.

Love to see your work, isn't it fun to have buttons for a long time and then find the "perfect"
garment to attach them

I was going to say it looks like a verdigris patina, then I see that you called it a copper tone! It's really different, a jewel! Thanks for sharing your lovely work! You inspire me to try different things outside of my comfort zone.

Bought the pattern last week (thanks to you!) and will purchase yarn this weekend with a Christmas gift card to my fave LYS. Your sweater is GORGEOUS and the buttons really are the icing on the cake!
