This...

is where those 9 buttons went!


And it's nothing short of a miracle to find enough matching ones in my button jar(s)!


Super Fast and Easy Knit.
Wore it for the first time yesterday while finishing up my Christmas shopping.
Without a coat but with a lovely scarf.
While the lightly falling snow swirled around but didn't accumulate.
And while the sun shone off and on  :)
Finally, some festive holiday weather!


Garter Yoke Cardi
Knit 1, fall/winter 2008
size:  medium

4 skeins:  100g/223yds each

One more week 'till Christmas, can you believe it???
