Gosh, button bands can take forever! The bands on my Blue Bown fair isle are all of a piece with the neck band and the neck is quite wide, so the strip I'm knitting is l.o.n.g. It's a bit fiddly having to work back and forth with two colours after the round and round of the garment itself, but I've developed a nifty flicking movement with my left forefinger that I'm rather pleased with!
I've nearly finished digging my potato patch on the allotment. I know: I'm horribly behind, but things usually catch up. I've worked my way into digging quite slowly and now I feel able to really get stuck in.
So, I'm ploughing on in my knitting and - more literally - in the earth!
