Hello! FO! Goodbye!

Gah, more drive-by blogging. Everytime Dr. Mad Scientist isn't on the computer 24/7, I've got nothing to blog about!

But here's the Anthromadeinchina Shruglet all done:

I cropped out my face. Bad face day.

I think it turned out cute.

The button matched great!

I took a page from Weez's book and followed the tutorial on My Fashionable Life to make the button loop. I re-did it about three times because I kept making the loop too big. But overall I love that technique. Especially because I suck at knitting real buttonholes.

Buttonholes are like my piecrusts. I can make them, they just don't turn out that great.

And just because I can--I leave you with my Brooklyn Tweed closeup shot. Except he can't take pictures of his boobs.

Oh I almost forgot! I also went balling this weekend...check out this cute one I made for me!

You shrug-let looks great and I bet it will make a good season transition piece (i.e. summer to fall). Thanks for the link about making the buttonhole too I hadn't seen that one.

Oh! So that is where Lefty is holding out!!! Nice boob shot, and nice shruglet! That looks really nice and warm. So are you trying to tell everyone that you are Irish? Well I guess a drop of Irish is enough. Love, Mom
