FO Dark and Stormy

My first finished jumper for 2012 - Dark and Stormy
4mm needle
Bendigo Woollen Mills Rustic 12ply in Midnight Tweed.
Buttons from the Button Bar.

I'm happy with this although there is a bit of pooching at the top of the fronts, but hopefully blocking will help improve the look.
The buttons are just gorgeous, the photo does not do them justice, they have a shimmer that matches the colour of the midnight tweed. The lady in the Button Bar was very helpful and was able to find just the right buttons in a matter of minutes. Definitely well worth the cost in the end they are lovely.

It's lovely and I do appreciate the buttons!! I hope there is some cold weather so you can wear it right now?? It fits really well.

Hi 2paw, thank you. I wore it this week and it's really comfy and warm like a big hug.
