This style is a big change for me. The other sweaters I have knit for myself are all pullovers, and all a fair bit longer. This is the first waist length sweater I've done. As many women are, I'm very critical of myself. Let's just say my rear portion is not my favourite. Therefore, it's been cropped out of this photo!
If you're wondering what's in my hand...it's a remote for the camera. One of the best $15 purchases we ever made. No more running back and forth with a timer. It's especially handy when we're out and about. I've lost count of the times I had to run across beaches, rocks, etc to try to get into a group photo. Sometimes the aforementioned rear portion of my body ended up in the shots. Can't have that.
Now, where can I find me some buttons?
