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:).
