The kit even comes with darker pink beads which get knitted in as nipples on the booby motifs!
There is even a special toe called the Nipple Toe....
I can't wait to cast these on so I will cut this entry short.............

I may have to look for sock yarn in this color. Come to think of it, I already have some! :-)

Yay, it's spring finally here. The glacier has melted from the front lawn, the sky is crystal blue, my dwarf dutch iris are blooming in the garden. Today on my walk, I saw a red tail hawk which is always a beautiful sight. Life is good.
And I got two comments on yesterdays post- my very first. I am so happy.

Last night I sewed the buttons on the button band of my Kauni, and have begun the second button band. I am at the point where the next row involves the buttonholes. I am using 9 buttons in 4 colors, with two close to the top and then on alternating "squares" rows. My neck band and the button band match pretty well, but when it came to starting the second button band, I decided to make a random change so the two front bands don't match. I think that goes along with the randomness of the whole sweater. What do you think??
After looking at the photo here, the green button looks misplaced, so I guess I will be moving it over a bit. At least the buttonholes should all be even!

I tried duplicate stitches over the red stitches which resulted from a sudden color splice, but was definitely unhappy with the result of that. I pulled the stitches out and will try another technique for it, that I saw on Ravelry. Gotta love Ravelry for getting your questions answered, even before you ask them.
