Joining Ginny.

I’m about to start the ribbing at the bottom of Inland. I’m trying to decide if I want to omit the last buttonhole and make it shorter, or continue on and knit until it’s the pattern’s recommended length. After that, I’ll just have the sleeves and the pockets left to knit. The KAL ends on the 9th, so I might just make it after all, despite my not-so-minor setback.

Oh, the buttons. I almost forgot about the buttons. I haven’t purchased any yet. I’m no sure what I want. Wood? Horn? Round? Square? They need to be rather large and there will be eight (or nine) of them. I will have to start looking online. Does anyone have a recommendation for an online store that sells pretty buttons?

It was windy and cool all day yesterday. I wore a sweater. Granted, it’s a thin cotton sweater, and I paired it with sandals, but still, it was the first sweater I’ve worn in months, and that is quite the phenomenon in Washington state. Fall is coming. Windy nights, chilly days. Burning wood stoves and hot cups of tea. I can’t wait.
