Completed Knit Report

Willow jacket – All Buttoned Up

As promised, a piccie of the finished, button clad Willow… I wish I’d made a size larger – it’s OK but a little snug – I imagined it being huge and snuggley and loose. Here’s the buttons…. It was amazingly hard to find a button that matched. I went to John Lewis (where it was […]
