Indigo Moon is Swatched!

I just love this yarn. Unfortunately, there's not enough to make a sweater. I used Sweaters 2.30 to come up with a set in sleeved, v-neck cardigan, minus the sleeves. In other words, I'm making a vest! I'm knitting with the KnitSmart, so the back was finished today. It's going to have a singled crocheted band around the armholes, bottom, and fronts. I haven't decided if I'm going to have buttons or some other closure.

I almost finished the hooded baby sweater, but I was too lazy to go out and get buttons, so the front bands aren't done yet. Anyone know a good online source for buttons?

  2. What wonderful colors! Fall in New England or some such.
    Have you ever used a WeavePro type program?

    Sorry Char, I don't know a good online source for buttons, but if I find one I will let you know because goodness knows I live for buttons!

  6. What kind of buttons are you looking for? Here's some of my favorite places to shop:
    I bought bison buttons from Crazy Crow and they are wonderful with my dark alpaca and dark dyed wool sweaters. I saved a few for a vest I am thinking about making of alpaca, angora and shetland...
    And last but never least is Sandy's handpainted buttons - I love the ones she made for me!!
    Hope you find something in this list to suit your fancy!
