It's so cute! I love it. Maggie, of course, loves it as well. :) I'm so sorry the pics are super yellow and grainy - I didn't have my camera set right and didn't notice until it was too late. So I fixed them up as best as I could. We'll take more pics in good light when it's not so hot that she'll pass out from having the wool touch her for even two seconds. :) Love you!

oh wow thats really pretty, sorry but im a little bit of a button lover, did yours come from a stash or shop? iv got some arm warmers just begging for some pink buttons, also is it just my dodgy eyes or are they different? it really is a gawjus piece of knitting.
