The buttons from Lantern Moon finally arrived. They are beautiful, lovely turquoise colour, made of coconut shell. I sewed them on and they looked lovely with the Summer Tweed.
Then I put on the sweater and the collar still does not lie flat. I will need to knit a large wedge into the back so that it lies flat on the shoulders. The pattern just did not work out for me. I think it is becasue I used the Summer Tweed and not the Donegal Tweed. Will have to cut the middle and use short rows to flatten it out. I really am not looking forward to it.
