One Less Project Hanging Around

Monday I went down to the bookstore to have lunch with Lynda and visit with Larry. In addition, I finally finished the sweater I was making for a bookseller's baby that was born in September (yes, I'm sorry to say, September and I'm just now getting it to them). Here's the sweater:
It's made with Anny Blatt Baby Blatt yarn. The pattern was from a newly revised Debbie Bliss book. Here's a close-up of the ribbed yoke with the buttons.
The ribbed yoke was fun to do and I really like the way it looks. I like it so much, in fact, that I copied the pattern for the socks I started in Austin.

I don't know why it took me so long to finish the sweater. I didn't get around to sewing it together until just before the holidays; then it sat for a couple of weeks after I got back, just waiting for me to sew on the buttons. (They're not actually sewn on here in the picture--I just laid them out and prayed they'd stay where they were. It actually looks better now.)

So anyway, I finally got it done and on its way to its recipient. That's one (little) thing I've gotten accomplished lately. Now I just need to turn my attention to some bigger things.
