Sweater for Harry Winston

Friends had a baby in November, they named him Harry Winston, isn't that cute. So I am knitting Harry the Child's Placket Pullover Sweater from Last Minute Knitted Gifts (check the errata, here, if you get the inclination to knit it.) I'm using Pear Tree Baby Merino in a beautiful shade of green (technically Moss, but it is not the color of moss) and I am looking for tiny, diamond like buttons, because nothing less will do for little Harry Winston!

On the Horizon

It has been a long, cold, snowy Chicago winter! I know, I know, what do I expect; I've lived in the midwest my whole life, winter is long, cold, and snowy. But this winter has been particularly brutal. Big snows followed by sub-zero weather. So come March, we long for a break, a little sun, sand, and beach. This spring break we're renting a house on St. Thomas with some friends and I am really looking forward to it. Thought I would share a couple of pictures of the house, because it's so freakin' awesome!
