Going with Toggles.

For this incarnation of this sweater, I’m going with toggles. I’ve decided. The first time I used leather patchwork buttons, with a shank, and as much as I loved the idea of them, I did not love them on the sweater. So this time, Toggles.
As soon as I finish this cast off. I approximate that this cast on will take the better part of 4 hours. Oh yes. FOUR hours. But why? Because I am deep in love with Elizabeth Zimmermanns Sewn Cast on-Cast off. The cast off is sewn in such a way as to mimic the look of the long tail cast on edge. You can find it in Knitting without Tears. Good god I love this cast off, but each stitch is essentially sewn twice, and with 380 stitches to cast off, well, it takes awhile. But it is SO worth it.

Day 9: Driving to Boston tomorrow! Maybe I should get to packing….
