A Button and a Hat

And now..... the button!
My sweater is finally finished.

I have been insanely busy at work but I have managed to cast on Shedir (Rowan Calmer in Garnet). I unfortunately only have bamboo needles in the right size for this pattern and I think I would enjoy it more if I knit it on my knit picks. Oh, well. I am enjoying the crazy cables in this pattern, I have been cableing without a cable needle! Between this and my Smoke ring socks I have been getting a fair amount of practice in "freedom" cabeling. I certainly find that a sharp point comes in handy more than ever using this technique. More knit picks are definitely on my wish list!

How is it that a button makes everything? This is beautiful.
