First up, the sweater. I took about 20 pictures of this, but it seems that I pretty much stink at modeling - I never know where to look or how to smile! These, sadly, are the best of the lot:

As you can see, the fit is spot on. This yarn is so silky against the skin. I just love it. I made the extra small size because this yarn is known to stretch (irredeemably) after wearing. Right now it's just a smidge tighter than I'd like.
And look at the pretty buttons I got last week at the fabric store:
And look at my nails! This is Absolutely Shore, from the Braziliant collection, stamped with China Glaze Sci-Fi and Konad plate m77. And here it is before stamping:

Very, very pale green. It's not as different from the Nubar Baby Sprout as I was hoping it would be. I'll have to do a comparison one of these days.
And now Jewel and I are off to run errands!
