I actually finished this sweater quite awhile ago. I got the pattern from Lion Brand.
Jason picked out the buttons at Pins and Needles in Farmington, ME (the buttons are fabric and made by someone in Maine). After I put them on something still felt missing. I decided that I'd embroider some little trees on it it tie the needles on the buttons to the rest of the sweater. I used to cross sititch, but embroidery is a different animal. I think it came out all right for my first time. I think I'd try it again.
Jason wants me to make another sweater. This time he wants me to put some more color into the whole thing.
