Wow! yours looks really cute. I tried making this one in some double-stranded dark green recycled wool, but I decided not to finish the second arm after I decided it makes me look like a big green blob. *sigh*... oh well.

Hi Limeylizzie! It took 7 1/2 skeins of Handpainted yarn in Verde Esperanza. I used size 10mm and 8mm needles (because I had lent out my 9mm) and I made the size M because my tension was off, so instead of trying to get the "right" gauge, I just did a little math and  realized that I could make the M to fit me with the gauge I got.

I still have to buy buttons. Does anyone have advice/caution about types of buttons? I know what size to get and everything.

Here is a pic of it blocking:


It smelled so bad when I was washing it. Like rotten eggs or something. I think it was the vinegar?? I used these methods to wash it.
The yarn is alot lighter than the yarn pic on the site. I will have to take that into consideration next time I order. Oh and I kept finding grass, burrs and bits of wood in my yarn. Did anyone else have this prob??

I have some gorgeous buttons from the 50s that I found at NYC flea market, I bought about 200 of 'em and will never use them all, so if you want 11 of these lucite/sparkly pretties, I will send you some. I have pink, greyish/brown, blue, sparkly turquoise., white and lavender. All sizes , all with little chips of quartzy looking sparkles in them.

Wow Limeylizzie, that's very generous of you! Are they the right size for this (1.5" dia.)? I would love to see a pic of them - and I actually need 12... is that ok? I will take the sparkly turquoise ones, please, and will be in your debt. Do you want some yarn from my stash or something in return?

Thank you!

OK
I have just dug through the insane button collection and I have 12 @ 1 1/2  inch diameter but in mixed colours, I do have 12 in the turquoise in a 1" diameter. I will try and get pics to you later today.

Limeylizzie, you are a sweetheart! Thank you! I am so broke right now, you have no idea how much this means to me. Anyhow, I will take the 12 turquoise in  1" diameter. I am sending you a pm with my address.

I've been away for a few days and missed all the additions to the thread!

loisgriffinwannabe, not only does it seem you figured out how many stitches to cast on, you have a FABULOUS finished object!  Can't wait to see how the generous Limeylizzie's buttons look and how it looks on you.  Post when you can!

(and you are very welcome - I'm so glad I helped get people excited about this pattern!)
