I have the stitches all picked up for the button band on Una's Sweet Peasy as well, but I need to sit with a notepad and work out the holes, since I want the buttons to go all the way down. What is it with cardigans nowadays? Why only two or three buttons? I mean, that is fine for a summer sweater, but I really prefer my tummy to get some coverage as well!
I still have An Exorcist Tells His Story on the bedside, and I read a bit as I am able. But I am back to perusing Books Children Love for some ideas to get the boys reading more. Sebastian is not so difficult, but Gabriel is one of those "I Hate Reading" kids. I'm not too worried, as Una, who is a speed-reader and consumes books like popcorn, once said that, too.
I am also trying to read Una's new favorite book (well, after the Lord of the Rings trilogy), The Shadow of the Bear. It is youth fiction, but as I was in NYC at the same age as Blanche, one of the characters, I thought I would give it a read.
Hopefully I will be done with Una's cardigan by the next Yarn Along and casting on my last cardigan of six I am knitting for Christmas. If I can get that done quickly, I might have a couple of weeks left over for hats and scarves!
