So, after months of "Knit 1, purl 1, knit 1, slip 1" it is time to kick start my brain, (but it's Monday!!! That's my inner whiner. Some people have inner children. I have an inner whiner.) I have to figure out how to attach the button tab to the front.
First try wasn't satisfactory, as evidenced by this lovely shot of Sedona with her
In other news, the folks from Ravelry couldn't have been nicer (unless, of course, they had insisted on buying all the yarn Susan stocks at Mass. Ave. Knits. I guess THAT would have been nicer!) I think I will "adopt" them all.
But not until after Christmas.
My list is long enough already, without adding sixty
I tried to be good. Honest I did. I mean it's not like I don't have enough on my plate.
But I just couldn't resist the Malabrigo.

She'll be a knee length cardigan jacket with a soft rolled shawl collar. And she'll be February's pin up girl. Have to finish Moroccan Days and my "secret" project first.
And now that I have gotten THAT out of my system, I'm ready to tackle that button band again.
As Tim Gunn would say, "Make it work."
Almost there. I can see the finish line from here...
