Finished Objects and new idea

Loppem is finally finished except for the buttons. Now all I have to do is find the perfect ones. The pattern calls for 2 inch size buttons but after buying two sets today I've decided they are too big. I have some on order from Etsy so maybe I will just have to be patient.
Pattern: Loppem from Norah Gaughan Volume 3
Designer: Norah Gaughan
Yarn: Dyelicious Hand Dyed Yarns Merino Worsted - Autumn Threads
3 x 100gm skeins
Needles: 5.omm circular
Mods: sleeve band only worked on cast on stitches. Added garter stitch front bands and lengthen the bottom band to match the sleeve.
In progress I have a new sock pattern which I'm tentatively calling Mountain Streams because that is what the colour reminds me of. The yarn is Dyelicious Hand Dyed Yarns Fingering Merino.Keep Smiling :-)
