february lady, finished
pattern: february lady sweater by pamela wynne
yarn: recycled, wool/alpaca blend, gray with bronzey undertones (the exact colour of my cat)
time to knit: 19 days (would have been more like 12 but i got bored two thirds of the way through the second sleeve).
buttons: 3 cm catalin from vintage necessities (yes, they're the same style as the ones i used on the miss henry cardigan. y'all don't even want to know how many other sizes and colours i bought these same buttons in. several sizes of just the yellow is only the start of it).
mods: none, although i'm considering making the sleeves a little longer due to the extreme drapiness of the fabric making the elbows kind of poochy. i'll decide later. nah, you know what? looking over the photos again i can already tell i'm going to lengthen them. stay tuned.
verdict: love, love, love. even with the poochy arms. once they're longer i'll love it four times.
a closeup on the buttons:
there is a reason why everyone on the planet is making this sweater right now. it's because it's awesome.

I'm not on this bandwagon, yet. I see it being something I knit in the near future, though. Also, I really like your x-men buttons.
