Work in progress Wednesday

Hi there, running late today.  I don't have very much going on that is interesting.  I do have now two completed and completely identical sleeves.  Trust me, they are identical.  It took a lot to get them that way.

I started last night the test knitting for my the first pattern ever that I have sold.  I'm not sure that I'm supposed to show a lot about it but suffice to say it is lace, merino and beads.  Beads and lace just go together for me.  It will take me awhile to get through it but I'm hoping just a week or so.  I'll certainly be  talkative about it when I can.

I did run out at lunch today to a local button shop that I had never been to before.  The design decisions on my Aran Cardigan are looming.  What kind of edging and buttons do I use?  So hard to decide.  I bought three different types of buttons and nearly fell over by how much they cost.  And of course no returns.  In the coming weeks, I'll ask for input on which buttons.  And perhaps you all can help me find a good home for the runner up buttons.  But so much to get through before then.

Go check out all the great fiber crafts over at  Tami's.
