Kynance Cove is Finished

Last night when Vince started to go to bed, I told him I was staying up til I finished Kynance Cove and about midnight, I was re-thinking my decision but I persevered and it’s done!

Next step . . block it, then weave in all those ends, then sew on buttons then . . wait for winter! I’ll post another photo once it’s totally finished and ready to wear.

I like this because I can put it on over a shirt or not, I can wear it with jeans. If there weren’t so many patterns I want to make, I’d make another of these for sure.

Kynance Cove isn’t finished yet but I could get it done today . . but I said that Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday! This photo was taken before I started the second sleeve.

I do believe I can get it finished today and then maybe get the cabled cardi finished before time to start the Camp Loopy project.


Buttons

The decision has been made about buttons for Kynance Cove. Here are my choices:

These are some storebought buttons that I thought  might work and they could work. If I were going to use these, I would probably use the ember/rusty colored yarn for the front band.

These are my favorite but they need to be a little smaller and the red needs to be a little darker and more rusty colored. I’ve written the Buttonalia lady to see if she can make smaller/redder.

As of this minute, these are probably the ones I’ll use and then I’ll use the green yarn for the band. I’m still looking at buttons . . could change my mind. One thing for sure .. it’s going to be a while before I need a sweater around here. Man it’s hot! The next few weeks, because of the 100+ temps with 110+ heat index — my least favorite time of year. I keep telling myself . . fall will be here soon . . just not soon enough!
