FO: Elwood for Gin
Don't fall off your chair... the knitting is certainly not fast & furious around here, but I have managed to finish this adorable little sweater for Gin!
- Project: Elwood for Gin
- Pattern: Elwood by Jenny Wiebe
- Sweet Georgia Yarns "Party of Five," Snapdragon colorway
- Make.Do Realize Worsted
- Needles: US 7, 8 & 9 - straights & DPNs
- Start to Finish: July 31 - September 19, 2016
I love the button band/shawl collar combo in this pattern.
There isn't a modeled shot yet, but you'll be among the first to know!
I am completely in love with the ladybug buttons! When I posted on IG that I was in search of buttons, Ina Braun responded via email with photos of her extensive button selection! I mailed the sweater to her and after a little discussion, she sent it back with these and another contender... but it was these for me, all along.
Serious cuteness... Gin's gonna blow it out of the water! I have enough leftover yarn to make a simple striped hat, and I think I'm going to do that!

I saw those little buttons and knew you had some serious cuteness going on. I think all the younger people in your life get exposed to so much creativity that they won't be able to avoid being creative themselves. What a great gift to pass on.

So very perfect! Love the sweater (and the colors) and the ladybug buttons are wonderful! Can't wait to see the sweater being modeled. Meant to say the other day I hopped over to your daughter's blog from New Zealand and really enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing the link.
