All buttoned up
I never considered saving the buttons for a future project. I am not a save-for-special-occasion sort of girl. I'm a use-it-and-enjoy-it girl. I just find it amusing how often I hear people speak of saving (rather than using) something as an heirloom, simply because nobody else had used it before them.
So the buttons are in place; the sweater is done; and, since the recipient is about the size of this bear, it has room for growth, which is good, as babies grow like wildflowers.
