Perfect Paula

Paula's sweater is finished! And if I do say so myself, it looks quite snazzy! It's not totally my style, and it doesn't fit me particularly well, but that's because it's my mom's style and is sized to fit her.

Okay, it's not 100% complete... the button bands in this picture are pinned closed. But that's because I am taking my time lavishing all the gourmet details on it -- grosgrain ribbons on the inside of the button bands and fancy shell buttons obtained on a special trip to M&J Trimmings. I hope she likes it!
