When I started this sweater, I debated whether I should knit if for myself or my mother. The answer, of course, is both. But I tried to take this one for myself. The result? Sleeves that were too tight despite measuring to death, and a total inability to find either buttons or clasps that seemed right.
It went into hibernation for almost a year. Then... I admitted that it belongs to my mother. The clasps appeared miraculously in the LYS, and it fits her PERFECTLY!
