I did receive the lovely Mission Falls buttons that I bought for Tipi, so I sewed them on and wore her yesterday. Here she is:

Pattern: Tipi
From: A Season's Tale by Rowan
Size: 36 with suggested needles
Yarn: Rowanspun Chunky, Fern
Buttons: Mission Falls Carved Horn

I just adore this sweater. The chunky yarn is warm and casual, a good look over jeans and a tshirt. It fits nicely--perhaps the best fit of a sweater to date.

Here's a closeup of the button band and buttons. I think they look like little suns, my hubby says Inuit. The color is warm and picks up the light brown flecks in the yarn.

This is a great basic cardigan. It knit very, very quickly --just about 2 weeks of inconsistent work. I think that I might actually be learning how to finish, as my seams look much nicer. All in all, a satifying project and the first FO of 2006!
