Finished Object

I'm not good at keeping surprises a secret...I get so excited that I usually blow it.
Well not this time...
I knit this sweater for Bump and had the buttons custom madefor it by Buttons by Robin, a wonderful shop on Etsy...
She used a photo of Rupert that I emailed her...Rupert is their (Bump, C & M's) family dog...
I couldn't post a photo until they had received the sweater which arrived on their doorstep last night...
Oh how I wish I could have been there when they got it!
It turned out amazing!
Pattern: Baby Sophisticate
Yarn: Big tweedy Cashmere (lucky boy)
Please check out Robin's shop on Etsy I know you'll find buttons you love and she does amazing work!

Thanks Julie!!
Rupert makes a perfect button subject! I've been told that Bumps dad wants a sweater just like his now!

Baby sophisticate looks great, having fun pinning with you. Pinster is great for creativity.
we lived in Redmond for 9 years, our son is still in Bothell so come your way often.
We used to go to Banks often. Have a great Memorial Day, it is probably a big track day. Love following your blog.

Great Job!!! Yes it keeps me thinking of new things to do. Almost overwhelming. i try to only spend an hour a day on it. there are so many things I have thought about and to put them in one place is amazing.
I love your blog and think of the places you go often, it is just we now need the lack of rain, but we still miss the area and of course with a 1.5 yr old grandaughter there we go as often as we can (at least every 3 months. I hit the Ben Franklin in Redmond for ideas and other places.
I truly like your knitting projects and your mom must be a hoot..
I promise to try and be a good pinner.
