I was in a quandry as what to knit as I did not want to do my traditional quick sweater. So I took in a few patterns and my friend liked the one with buttons best. So did I. This is the outcome of my knitting project with the pattern taken from the July 2005 Creative Knitting magazine:
Not the best picture, but taken with a cell phone at work after I gifted the sweater. I enjoyed making this sweater and gifting it for the new little girl. The grandmother cried.
