Buttoned Up

My Washington Square is finished.

I sewed on the buttons, wove in the ends and gave the sweater a good bath.  After I took the sweater off the needles, I tried it on.  I wasn't so sure I liked it, but the bath and blocking worked miracles.  It's a keeper.

The yarn is a superwash worsted weight Merino that I dyed.  I don't carry this yarn on a regular basis, but I've used it here and there for special projects.  

We're in the midst of a late summer hot spell, so I'm putting this sweater away.  It will be ready and waiting for proper fall weather.
