After all that wonderful end weaving, I gave it a soak in my laundry room sink.
I decided on only 4 button holes. I still need to find coordinating buttons. But that would mean a trip to a craft store. And I detest taking my kids to any store right now. So I'll get there eventually. Here is the final project.
ravelry page for details. The pattern called for cotton, but I wanted wool. This yarn is a workhorse, not a delicacy. It isn't the softest of wool, isn't superwash, but nevertheless it knitted up nice. The colors were inspired by a Navajo blanket I saw at an art show. They are rich earth tones.
This is a sweater for me, and it fits well. Thanks for following along with me! I feel like throwing a party to celebrate. Or maybe I'll just start a new project! :)
