Tunnel Vision is Boring to Watch

Sorry to be so dull as I am consumed with processing my fleece in all my spare time. It's all prepped now and ready to comb. I will get to that tonight once I get the kids in bed.

Last night at Purlygirls I pulled out the not-centered ribbed neckline edging and button band on Retro Prep the Third and started a simple garter band with mitered corners at the neckline just like my FI Yoke Cardi (I know you've seen it before but damn I love that sweater). I completed the buttonholes after screwing up the calculations. Note: When figuring out how many stitches go between the buttonholes you must subtract the number of stitches used to create the buttonholes. Oops. No matter. I had already pretty much decided to put in the buttonholes but not sew on any buttons right now. I haven't found ones I like and I never button my cardigans anyway. Why take the time and money to add buttons I won't use? If I change my mind the holes will still be there.

Has anyone seen one of these Murval bags in person? Is it as totally cute as this picture?
