And I've also just picked out some other findings for nearly finished knits… buttons, clasps, etc. It feels good to make the final lap for these projects… I love these matte buttons on this green sweater.

And the Brooklyn Tweed Shelter Loki cardigan is also coming together. I decided to create a hem around the steeked edges of the right and left fronts. It will match the hemmed body of the garment as well. And I'm going to sew on some hooks and eyes to see how I feel about that type of closure. The bulk of the steeked edges and the front and back of the hems is not insignificant (about three times the bulk of the sweater fabric in the stockinette areas naturally). I think would be too much to double them up with snaps or buttons.
Cross your fingers that this works out. I'm hopeful.
