This is what I need buttons for April!! The colorway is called Lagoon...any ideas for buttons?? I will need 4

I love the yarn, tho, so frog frog frog! I'll be happy with them once they're done. :goodvibes:

I'm in a pickle on the SH, tho. I've finished to the bottom of the body and find that while it fits my 18 mos old nicely, it also fits my 3.5 yo! Who gets the sweater?! ARGH! Probably the little one as it's a scrappy sweater and I want to make sure I have enough yarn for it.

ETA: the baby still as a fever and my MIL arrives today for a week's stay. We're suposed to be doing a last minute clean as a family but DH is still in bed.
Oh my gosh! That's crazy, i mean really crazy! Doesn't everyone kitchener the crotch? Pretty much every pattern I've seen calls for that. And short rows in the front? lol.

It's the colorway from the hollis from valerie but without the natural. The colors are a bit deeper per request.

Morning ladies and Tim...

I'm working on the budget. My nieces and nephews may be coming to live with us for the year. We will see what happens. If they do, that will be 8 kids for us. My thoughts are very preoccupied with the prospect at the moment. We need to buy 2 beds if this happens. I may go check out costco.

Have you posted a want ad on freecycle? I'd try there first, you never know, someone might have some to give away!

I think it's pretty and I wouldn't have noticed it right away had you not mentioned it. It will probably be fairly inconspicuous once it's knit.

Sarah! I didn't read yesterday's post but I saw it quoted in today's. Sorry you had a bad weekend... but




So I got some decent work in on the tester sweater for Ayden:




I am about to start the hem but want to try it on my little guy first.

I also got a bit of dyeing done over the weekend. Mostly trims, but I'll take pics today when the last of it is dry.
Love that sweater, what's the name of the pattern and what sized range does it run?

I like those colors, they remind me of the Baby Nay puppies print. Is it for a boy or girl?

It is a NB custom...not sure if the mama knows the sex, but she wants gn/boy...
I think these would match awesome, but TA has not returned my convo...to see if she could switch the heart/flowers to just plain solid coloured buttons...I am sure she is busy...

So I am hoping April will be able to help me out!!

It has sizes from 6mos to 8 years. I don't think she has a pattern page up on rav yet, but here is my project page:
http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Bear...r-ayden-tester
I'll update it with the pattern name when I get it from the writer.
