Noelle woke up Easter Sunday sporting a 104 fever. She is still sick but finally seems to be improving a little bit. Being stuck at home isn't all bad. I managed to finish another sweater...The Twiggy sweater, pattern by (surprise) Jane Richmond. It was the perfect project to whip up between KALs.
Knit with large needles in lofty Bernat Roving, this sweater is chunky looking but in this particular yarn feels very light. It's already fuzzing up though, even after blocking. Next time I knit this (and there WILL be a next time, the pattern is so easy and fun!) I will probably go for a sturdier, plied yarn. 
Now, I definitely know how to sew a button. But I wanted to see if there was some special way to sew buttons on knitted "fabric", and I found this great tutorial. Always nice to learn new little tricks.

sweet Ellie...
