I just found the weird little adapter thing that will read the memory card in my (totally battery dead) digital camera, so lets upload a few photos. First, Ben and Milo modeling their Olympic sweaters in 2nd Time Cotton, "Nantucket."
Next the "LPT":
I know, the button placement is off. Short version is that the way the sweater is designed, one button would face IN and one would face OUT. I thought that was weird, but went ahead and followed the pattern. When I had washed the sweater though, a tiny gap had developed in the spot where you see the right button. I decided what the heck--and made it the second button hole. I like it better that way and the new owner won't care (and will find it easier to button).
We went to meet the angel who will be wearing that outfit today. FAR more beautiful than the sweater. My gosh, what a precious baby doll. And her big brother looked like he'd grown three inches overnight. He was so proud.
Sing it with me!
