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
