Arrow RAVE for Nicole of DaKine Knits and Tessa Ann Buttons!

This project was so much fun from start to finish. First, order Sugarbubbie's "Claire" on superwash from a coop. Then, decide the yarn REALLY wanted to become a Kenna Top (and who better to knit it than someone equally infatuated with SB? ) Finally, some perfect custom buttons to match the colorway and make my little cowgirl say "WOW!!!"

Nicole of DaKine Knits did an AMAZING job and was so much fun to work with. She talked to Tessa Ann and got the custom buttons shipped to her directly (saving me shipping charges!) She was quick to communicate and happy to provide photos for me when I couldn't decide how the bottom should look (diagonal cuff -- love how it shows off the colorway)

This flawless sweater fits Kaitlin perfectly and even got a "nice." from dh when he saw it on her! (I took that as tacit permission to get back on Nicole's customs list.)

Thank you so much, Nicole!


Here are the results:

Thanks for looking!
