Knittin', Honey

I'm linking up with Heaven is a Bookstore for Martha Monday ...


Been working away on my Dynamic Cardi. I really like the feel of the Patons Grace mercerized cotton yarn. It's so light weight; I cannot wait to wear this cute little sweater!



I finally had a chance to go button shopping. Because of the spicy tan color of this yarn, I knew I wanted buttons that had a coppery feel. Found just the thing at Jo-Ann's. They're Belle Buttons by Dritz, made in Germany, and cost $11.00 for 6 (I need 5). They have a bit of a hammered metal look to them and the color matches perfectly, which is exactly what I was hoping for ...


I know I said I wouldn't do any other knitting while I was making my sweater, but I just couldn't help myself. I modified the funky footsies pattern to make some anklet socks for Hubby -- shortened the cuff, added length to the foot and left off the girly fun fur. He wears them at his desk in our home office and while watching TV in the evenings ...


And I needed birthday gifts for a couple of other sweet men in my life this month so ...


... I'm just knittin', honey!
