All but the buttons

Fits like it was made for him! Well, that's because my loosey-goosey calculations turned out to be bang on for once. The sleeves are a good length, and if he can hold off on the growing for a bit, we'll be fine.

(That's not a giant red bow in his hair, that's a big red kite hanging from the ceiling!)

"Look like a skier!" Too bad the loony grin was too much for public viewing.

I am afraid that I have not been as successful with the Chia pet. It is a dud, I have to say. I will look for some fresh seeds, but for now, it's a big ol' zero.

And now I have a few days to sew on the buttons for this sweater and attempt to sew up one more! But we are gearing up for the last birthday party of the season this weekend, and I have Coq au Vin to make (it starts at the bottom of that page), as well as a cake and all that other party stuff. So we shall see about sweater seaming.

Tonight, buttons!
