I'm in Love




...with my Forecast. See? She even helps out with the yardwork, which is more than I can say for my (two year old) son... Come check out this post on my blog to see the whole story of our day together. Thanks to all of you for inspiration and tips!

PS- I suppose if I had to add one tip to the pot, it would be to buy your buttons in person. I did, and I'm so glad, because the buttons I picked out first, shiny silver ones from Spain, were beautiful but would have completely eclipsed this sweater. Keep in mind that you'll be sewing TEN of these puppies on, and choose something that you can handle in that number. I went with something darker, more burnished, so that the sweater could speak for herself.

I agree - lovely!

I have to admit that I was naughty with my second Forecast - I modified it to only have 8 buttons because sweing the buttons on annoyed me. It looked good though!

That is a really gorgeous sweater. I'll be pleased if mine comes out half as nice!

Such a lovely aubergine! You look like quite the monument with the rake. And, yes, the buttons are perfect.
