it's really done!

I found buttons--after a long and arduous search (no one seems to have toggle buttons)--and got them sewn on, finally. I wish I could model it and show it off, but it's too small for me, and it looks well, silly on me. It's too short, just barely can be buttoned, etc. I think it will fit my mom--the intended recipient--well, and I look forward to giving it to her. I think I'll give it to her for Mother's Day!

finished sunrise circle jacket!

Full details are on my blog.

Looks great. Can you post a picture wearing it?

(that goes for everyone, it's more fun to see it on, don't you think?)

I wanted to show it on, but like I said, it's too small. I agree that shots of finished objects on people are always better than flat shots, but there's no way I can accurately show it!

I will try to get a shot of my mom in it, but I'm not giving it to her until May!

It looks great - what a pity it is too small for you :( I'm sure your mom will love it though.

That really came out beautiful!! I know your mother is going to love it. Any thoughts on making another for yourself?

I should make clear that this was always intended as a gift for my mom--it's not just because it's too small! It's deliberately too small :)

And I'm definitely going to make one for myself, once I get a few other things off my plate! (Chocolate brown for me, just like KnitAnnie's.)

Your buttons are really pretty. I like the almond shape. May I ask where you bought your buttons?

Congratulations on your jacket!
