My very first adult sized sweater!

The Bloc Party by Kathleen Dames...

 This was my first attempt at a sweater for ME!

 The pattern has an integrated button band (which means the button holes are on both sides) and so the buttons I am using are interchangeable...kind of like cuff links.
 For now, they are matched to the stripe colours, but I also have a full set of plain white buttons that I can pop in when I'm looking for something a little more subdued.
I did some fun colourblocking...
...and most of the sweater is done in plain stockinette, which I love!
There will be another sweater in the fact, I have already cast on!

What are you working on this week?


  1. oh, that's pretty! Love the colors and the buttons are fabulous!

  2. Love the colors you used. Perfect!

  3. Good for you! I love your different shaped buttons, too.

  4. very pretty sweater and I love your buttons :)
