Homework – done.

Dinner – done.

Laundry – done.

Knitting time – you have got to be kidding me!

Who’d of ever thunk that I’d find myself at the end of a day and not wanting to pick up a knitting needle and while away the time knitting.

That day has arrived, gentle readers.

My brain is officially fried. 

Last night I gleefully finished my edited version of Sonnet – Sonnetina.  And, then I went to get the buttons to sew them on.  And, they were not in my knitting bag….

Okay, maybe they are in the other knitting bag….

I could not find those buttons anywhere. 

My vest could not be finished…. Alas, poor Yorick!


Alas, poor Wallet! 

Yes, I had to stop and purchase 3 more buttons today after school to finish my vest.

But, it is now completed – and I have proof.  These buttons are divine – as well they should be as they cost me almost $5 a piece! 

Okay – without further adieu – I present to you Sonnetina!

The required “in the mirror self-portrait”…

Note the amazingly expensive glorious buttons.  See the little “peplum-ish” added edging – I like how this turned out.  I think it will lay flatter when I block it.  But I am so wearing this tomorrow!  Blocking, be damned!

Again – note the buttons!  FIRMLY attached to the vest.  There will be no loosing these babies!

And finally – a nice view of the neck – both inside and out.  And – one last shot of those AMAZING buttons.

So, I will leave you with the specks of my Sonnetina.

Cast on – Friday January 18, 2008

Finished – Monday January 28, 2008.

Yarn – Now discontinued Classic Elite Gatsby

Needles – Addi 10 1/2 for body of vest.

                  Addi 13 for applied i-cord.

This is truly the fastest thing I have ever knit and I am so happy with the end result.

Now, I think I hear Bonnie and Clyde calling my name…. stay tuned.
