ALMOST Done

Pattern: Seamless Yoked Baby Sweater by Carole Barenys
Yarn: Lion Brand Baby Soft (sport weight)
Needles: Addi Turbo US 7 circs
Mods: I omitted the decorative stitches around the bottom of the sweater and the wrist of the sleeves. I also did paired decreases down the arm to create a more tapered sleeve.

This is almost done. It just needs to be blocked and (here's where you come in) it needs buttons. Here are the options (turns out I had more than I remembered):

Apologies for the fact that this photo is upside down; for some reason I can't get it to flip. So here are the choices, top to bottom: dark gray, dark blue, pearly white, pearly white with hole in back. Which one gets your vote?

I like the dark blue button best. And, to answer your question about the handles for the little Erin Bags, I get the bamboo ones for the cotton bags at JoAnn Fabrics. For the wool ones, I usually suck it up and buy the good wooden ones at www.mjtrim.com. It kills me to spend that much on them, but you can't beat the quality.

I like the dark blue the best. Dark gray is nice, too, but the white ones are too white, I think.

Okay, I am late, but I would go with the plain pearly white. So classic.
