With an awful bout of the flu, the last thing I want to do is sit up in bed and knit with 3mm needles and some cotton string. So I didn't knit a stitch yesterday. But I'm feeling better this morning, and had fun knitting a few rows of my tube top. I'm about 3/4 of the way through on one piece and might be able to finish it before heading out today.
I also finished my son's summer sweater, sewed the buttons onto the button band on the left shoulder, and promptly became horrified when I saw that the buttons I bought are enormous! They make him look like he's sporting wheels on his shoulder, for pete's sake. So I'll be heading to the mercerie
to exchange them for something in a more discreet size. And from now on, I'm going to wait until a sweater is finished before buying buttons, and I won't buy them in the size required by the pattern if it looks ghastly.
