The party is getting bigger

The front is finished and the back is almost done.

There will be buttons on the side of the sweater. You don't make button holes - the buttons are sewn to both flaps to hold them together.

We received more sock yarn today. This is self-striping in great colours.

Featured Speaker for 2015: AMY SINGER! Her talk will be “Digital Camera Secrets for Knitters” and it takes place at 1 PM in the Speaker’s Area.
Amy is the founder and editor of the wonderful online magazine Knitty.com, and is a knitting teacher, designer, and all-around lovely person. Read more about her on her website, amysinger.ca.

Whether your camera is in your phone, a cute little point-and-shoot or something with a few more features, taking better digital pictures is not rocket science. There are simple, concrete things you can do to make the photos you take better right now.

In this informative lecture, Amy will demystify the mechanics of photography. She’ll tell you which are the most important settings to adjust on your point-and-shoot camera, and how to be the boss of your smartphone camera, too! She’ll cover easy after-processing with iOS and Android apps (for smartphone pictures) and affordable alternatives to Photoshop for computer-based processing. And because good photography is not just about the equipment you use, she’ll talk about how to take a good picture of your knitwear! We’ll talk about models, locations, backgrounds, styling and more!

You won’t want to miss this helpful lecture! Bring a notebook and pen!
I really wish that I could hear Amy's talk. Maybe another time. It's Party Time. My goal is to have it finished by tomorrow evening. Then I get to start a new project over the weekend :)
