It's hard to believe that in a few short months, I will have my own little knitting model.
Until then, it does look like the paper towel holder/ wooden spoon apparatus will retain it's job.
I do feel a little guilty. The other day, when I posted this as a WIP, everyone commented on the beautiful color. Well, the photo was a bit deceiving. It's not as light as you may have believed, but instead a dark navy blue. Here's the stats:
Size: 6-12 months (but I think it turned out a little bigger)
When I went to buy buttons, I didn't fall in love with any of them. Since I bought my yarn for this project when it was on sale at centerstreetknits.com, I quickly realized that purchasing 11 buttons could nearly double the cost of this project. I decided to see what I had at home, and I'm happy that I did!
If you've ever seen my slippers (and most of you have), you would suspect that I have a thing for the vintage leather button look. I love the look of this little jacket with the leather buttons, I feel like it changes it a lot from the original project.
How about you, do you have any money-saving, knitting-related secrets to share?
