Buttons.......

The perfect buttons. Snowflakes for the Winter Sunset Cardigan.
This should have be finished last winter. But at least it's not filling up my basket any more.

Pattern: Winter Sunset Cardigan by Jamiesons.
Yarn: Jamiesons 2 ply.
Needles: 3.25mm
I very happy that I got this done. If I hadn't put it down to do other projects it would have been done a lot sooner.
I do have another kit from this company, Saga Rose and I would love to do it but I think it will be awhile. I'm thinking something with larger needles.

Mr. D also got a new toque this weekend. I just used a regular toque pattern and inserted the skull pattern. Patons Classic Wool and 4mm needle.

And now I'm going to try and finish Caitlin for Miss "P" but she conned me into this today.

Chocolate Chip cookies.

And every time I turn my back she's gone with the camera and takes pictures of the cats. This one's not to bad for a 3 year old.

Awww...my little baker (and maybe a photographer like her mommy by the looks of it). The buttons couldn't have been better for that sweater!!! Your son said he needs a toque like that so that will be something I have to work on I guess. he he!

The cardigan looks great, and those buttons are absolutely perfect! Mr. D's hat is awesome! I love the skulls. :) As always, Miss P. looks like she's having a blast at Grandma's house. :) I really should start baking again ... maybe I'll make some chocolate maccaroons with the kids on the weekend. :)

The cardigan looks great - it doesn't matter how long it took, a finish is a finish.
