Finished Hood and Picked Out Buttons

I've picked my buttons. My dear, sweet husband drove me into Vancouver so I could check out this shop called Button, Button. It was so exciting, almost as fun as a yarn shop, with all the beautiful buttons surrounding me. I had to pick quick, cause the kids were with us, but, I'm very pleased with my new buttons. And I am going to find a reason to go back soon without my darling children and browse to my heart's content.

Also, here's another picture of the hood. I ripped back and added a shortrow to get the cable on the very front to line up and then I redid the grafting and am now much happier with how it looks. I will be blocking this soon, so be on the lookout for a finished object shortly.
