The Daily Purl




I closed the week by finishing a book and completing a new fall sweater. And yet they both carried over to a misty, foggy weekend. Characters lingered in my mind as I wrapped myself in grey wool to take off the morning chill.


This sweater calls for five buttons. I dug through my Grandmother’s stash in hopes of finding a full set. Coming up empty, I sewed on this single button as a temporary closure. However now that I see this beauty in place, I may just continue to wear it with the one button.
