Plum Truffle Redux

(Plum Truffle part 1, Plum Truffle part 2, Raveled here.)

Well, those dimples on the button band were really annoying me, though I can’t even wear it for another two months. I really liked the idea of an invisible button band, but on this cardigan it’s just not working out. So I pulled out four lovely buttons I got from Jo-Ann ages ago, picked up four more (luckily they’re still in stock), and now this button band is 100% visible.

I had to reknit the buttonhole band because I’d originally knit it with dyelot #2, which would have been way too obvious to let show. Now the buttons are fastened on the ‘wrong’ side, but I certainly don’t care enough to reknit both bands. Between the buttons and all the cabling, perhaps the effect is a bit busy–but still a big improvement, methinks!

    Plum truffle sounds like a really, really expensive kind of chocolate.
