Mini Weasley

I picked up some very Weasley-ish buttons from Strings 'n Stitches in Ellijay last week, you know, the store with the great door. Only $.40 cents a piece, so I have one to spare. I should have bought the whole dang tube they are so fantastic. Rustic without being overly so. This picture does not do them justice, they are more worn (i.e. blackened with age) than they appear.

Just in time to finish up a very tiny Weasley sweater. A Mini Weasley sized to fit a newborn with fabulous buttons in the back to help it fit over larger heads. It's knit from the top down with raglan sleeves. I turned the hem to give it a more polished final result. The "O" is adapted from the alphabet in the this book.

I have been working on this project for ages and am super thrilled to share it with you. Crunching numbers. Researching measurements. Checking and double checking sizes. Referencing EZ. Crunching more numbers. Writing it all down for another post. And I'm very pleased with the end result, however, untested it is until Baby O arrives later this month.

Did I forget to mention that? Sorry. As an apology I promise post pictures of the boys in their matching sweaters.
