Comments: I wish I had a six month old baby just sitting around some were to model this sucker, but unfortunately it will be gifted before that ever happens. This item is so quick... got the yarn on a Tuesday and cast-on that night. Come the following Wednesday I had seamed my last tail. And dudes...I didn't touch it all that weekend. Talk about fast. The hat is just as quick. Come on...seriously, the hat took only one day. Shine Sport is super fabulous to work with...I'm wondering if I could possibly make a summer tank. opps. I digress.

Don't you just love it when you find the right buttons?



Okay, lets get closer:



I've been extremely lucky to have found likable buttons at Hancock Fabric. They're the only place with a wide selection. These buttons in particular have a pearl shine and hard to photograph, but you can kinda see the swirly design on that bottom picture. Love It!

Aw, that is the cuteness.

I'm trying to make a Tomato sweater with KnitPicks Shine in worsted. I love how soft the yarn is!
