From the Chic Knits pattern, made with Cotton Ease. ( RIP Cotton Ease Cry) I decided to try knitting on a button band instead of a zipper. The buttonholes are too stretchy but I guess that's life. Made this as a gift for Mom.

I am happy with with how this turned out so I just wanted to show it off! I wish I got a better picture before I handed it over this weekend.

Wow! That's beautiful: pretty shade of blue, too. I saw some bags of Cotton-Ease at Tuesday Morning (kind of a resale shop) in Albuquerque last week... $8.50 for three balls in case that helps anyone who's got the Cotton-Ease DTs!

NICE!!  I LOVE the color!

I may have a slight addiction to this pattern.  I'm sitting here in my ChicKnits Ribby Cardi in CottonPlus, frustrated with a cardi I frogged last night (NOT this pattern.  another pattern.  from VK.  a LYING pattern.  don't get me started) looking at the pile of yarn in the corner, trying to think of something to knit that will make me happy.  ALL I can think is "I have yarn for another Ribby Cardi". 

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

this is a sorta unrelated post but...
um, are you all saying that cotton ease is being discontinued?  despite its tendency to split, i really do like it.  good colors, good price, good weight. 

editing to say that i love the cardi!  that must be a great pattern.  and you chose a nice color.

Me too! It is a great pattern. It's a rare pattern that works out that well.

Thanks for the nice comments, everyone
