I have one body, two sleeves, and 1.5 front bands. I told myself that I was going to finish the sweater over the weekend, but clearly that didn’t happen. Today I decided that I’m going to finish my sweater this week so I dug out the buttons I had picked out so I could calculate my button holes. I added length so I can’t simply follow the pattern.


When I dug out the crinkly paper bag that my buttons were in it hit me how long I’ve been telling myself that I was going to finish this sweater soon. I bought these buttons almost a year ago while I was still studying abroad in England. I went to stay with family in York over American Thanksgiving weekend last November and I picked these out at Duttons for Buttons because I thought I was going to finish my sweater soon. Oh, how wrong I was!

But seriously, I am going to finish my sweater soon.


  • I hate to think of how long ago I started my audrey in unst! I think I’ll just restart it with a better yarn! Or maybe not? It actually is a good cotton yarn that’s been frogged a couple of times. I’m getting close to being done with my shalder. I’ve re knitted the lace at the neckline more times than I want to admit…but 4 rows to go! Then the edging…that should be interesting. Need to find the pattern again! And I’m not even in school! (I do work though)

    • I was only in England for the year. I did a year abroad and now I’m back at my normal university in Washington state.
