This weekend, I found the perfect buttons at 't Wolwinkeltje, my local yarn shop. I needed 36, and they had exactly 36 at .50€ a pop, bringing the grand total of this sweater to 102€. Sheesh! I don't know if I will be making another one of these anytime soon. It's definitely the most expensive sweater I have, and actually the warmest. I guess it's great that it's still 4°C in the mornings because I get to wear this sweater, but it's May already! Mid-May! (4°C = 38°F.) C'mon Belgium! Warm up already!
Here's a close up of the little guys.
And a view of the back:
I am pleased with this sweater and it's soft and warm coziness, but I am a little self-conscious in it. There is a bit too much volume in the upper back area. It's really just a little bit, no one notices but me. Also, I am not sure how to style this sweater. It's very fitted in the front (stomach area), and the owls may be a little young for me. Oh well...
This sweater makes me smile, which is why I made it in the first place.
Something else that makes me smile:
My artwork sold! I just sold my first piece!
