A Finished Object


I'd been starting to feel some anxiety lately. I needed to finish something. I needed to finish a substantial craft project that would be satisfying. And here she is: the completed Juliet sweater! I like it, although some of my enjoyment was diminished as I tried modeling it and taking pictues of myself in summer clothes, as it was snowing outside. But now I can look forward to wearing my new top in the spring, in my post-baby body. Although, with my body temperature at tropical levels right now, heck, I might just wear it for Christmas!

I love the idea of the alternate buttoning. So cool! :) I also think the journal is gorgeous but I'm in Canada so I can't enter. Oh well! :)

I entered your drawing, but had to come here and tell you how lovely this sweater is! I just love it and it looks great on you. The color, the buttons, everything. Nice job.
