Slowly but surely

Finally, the Easter weekend has arrived!

This afternoon, I'm going to go eat some macaroni at a friends place to help them raise money for breast cancer. It is a tradition in their family on Holy Friday (in French, Vendredi Sein)!

Tonight, I'll go knitting at Effiloché. This is always fun!

So far, I've completed my objective of the morning which is to sew the first re-knitted Thermal sleeve to make sure it fits this time before I re-do the other one. And yes, it does.

Now I can proudly show you my underarm ;-)

I have to find some nice buttons to go with it. I think I will go for a similar shade of green and slightly bigger than these temporary white ones. Any suggestions for a different color?

I'm so glad that I resisted the temptation to cast on for a pair of socks this morning. That would have been too easy ;-)

Have a wonderful Easter everyone!

Héé ce thermal!! Il résiste n'est-ce pas? L'envie de passer à autre chose est grande... mais quand il sera terminé, il va être MAGNIFIQUE! À tantôt à l'Effiloché!

Se ve bien la nueva manga. Has sido previsora probándote esta manga antes de tejer la otra.
Para los botones te recomendaría el mismo color de la lana, un tono más claro. ¡Va a quedar precioso!

¡Feliz Pascua! Joyeuses Pâques !

It looks great! I'm so bad with buttons... but the first thought that came to mind was something contrasting like a burnt orange, then I thought of a chocolatey neutral brown.
