Here it's March and I thought I'd better post before the month escapes me. I finished my Firebirds!
Firebirds is a kit from Virtual Yarns. The design is by Jade Starmore, Alice Starmore's daughter. I love the sweater, but boy, I definitely feel I could have done better if I'd had more experience with the various techniques used.
Father type and I went into NYC to Tender Buttons to find the buttons for my sweater. What an amazing store!
I decided to reinforce my button bands with ribbon on the inside. And here are the buttons I chose.
While in NYC, we managed to see our sweet girl child as well, and to grab some yummy food.
The last pic shows some mini cupcakes -- so yummy, and just the right size for a bite!
I have since started the Second Grace sweater by Bristol Ivy. It uses Fiber Company Cumbria yarn. (i'm actually farther along than this picture shows.)
Back at home.....
I hope everyone has a great week/month! And let's hope this huge blizzard that's coming isn't as bad as they say. Ugh.
