I struggled all week last week to get one stinking sleeve done for the sweater (more on this later I'm sure) and needed a break from the !OMG KNITTING! madness so when Paulette of Plum Street Samplers posted this little freebie chart on Monday, I was off and running. I not only got it stitched up since then............I ACTUALLY FINISHED IT OFF TOO. Most definitely a new record for me. lol
You knew I was going to get some buttons on there somewhere, right?
I kind of had to after all that 'button madness' stuff. It would be disappointing if I didn't.
I originally was going to do the 'got luck?' in gold but ended up going with a little 'pot o' gold' colored ribbon instead. :)
I just grabbed a teeny scrap of linen and two greens from the first box of DMC that hit my hand to make it easy-peasy, which ended up being.....
Very 'shamrocky'. I approve. lol
The linen is gods' knows what. Something-something-something.
So now I guess it's back to the sweater. I finally finished that first sleeve at 2am last night. (Thank you Joy Behar and Chelsea Lately late night repeats. lol) Second one should go much faster now that I've figured out, well, JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT EVER WAS when it comes to knitting a sleeve. *crosses fingers*
