I really thought I was going to be showing you my finished Acer by now. After making significant progress recently, I thought it would be such fun to surprise you all with a big TA-DA! The problem is, I decided I wanted to wear it to the trade show last weekend, and as soon as I put a deadline on it, things started going wrong. (Sad face.) So I had to accept that it wasn’t happening and stop trying to race to the finish line. But soon, very soon!
Meanwhile, there are two new items in the shop today that have ties, of a sort, to this cardigan. Awhile back, Julie Hoover posted a photo of her cable needles, which were too beautiful for words. I bought myself a set and knitted the rest of this sweater with them, enjoying them immensely — so much so that I ordered them for the shop. Six months later, they’ve finally arrived! Then this week I started thinking about buttons for my Acer and remembered I have a stash in the studio. Back in June, I bought a small number of really perfect old-school buttons, also for the shop, but hadn’t ever gotten them sorted out and shot and priced. After raiding the pile, I finally got the main type listed. So here they are for you: notched rosewood cable needles and quintessential buttons!
So, uh, you know what I’ll be doing this weekend. How about you?
