Simply Finished!

Well, my buttons arrived and I love them. They are fun and interesting without being too in your face. My Plain and Simple Pullover is finished!

I was worried about the fit while knitting, but think that the fit actually turned out really well. I think this will be a great layering piece when it cools down which is probably not anytime soon. Today it was 95 and I was sweating profusely as I took these few quick shots in the backyard. As you can see below, N decided to join me for my photoshoot:).

Pattern: Plain and Simple Pullover by Veera Valimaki
Yarn: 4 (I think) skeins of Country in Charcoal (75% Microdenier Acrylic/ 25% Merino Wool/ 3 oz/ 85 g/ 185 yds/ 170 m)
Needles: Size 7 for body, Size 5 for ribbing
Buttons: Six JHB 5/8" Filigree Square buttons (purchased here)
Modifications: Used worsted weight yarn instead of light fingering weight. More details on my Ravelry page.
