School Clothes, part 5

O.K. the title is a little misleading, as the 4th installment wasn't really clothes, but whatever, this is my space to do with what I will.
I finished the latest item in the fall collection yesterday.
I had a dickens of a time taking a good photo of this little sweater so I had to wait til today to post. The pics I took in the sun are still not stellar.
The buttons are a really light aqua, and mostly they read as white against the red whenever I try to take a photo of it.

It is still damp from blocking, but it does have buttons so that's something.

I added a loop at the top for hanging, I don't know if that's a good idea or not yet.
My goal was to avoid stretching out the sweater with a little poky outy part at the neck.
I measured the sweater and I measured the girl, and they seem like they will be compatible.
Here's hoping.
I hope you all have a wonderful last couple of weeks of Summer.
The FAIR starts tomorrow, so I plan on spending Friday covered head to toe in mini donuts and fresh squeezed lemonade.
See you there if you're local and loyal!

The sweater is adorable. I haven't done a lick to get ready for school. Sigh.

I'm not sure we are going to make it to the fair this year. Criminal, I know. Enjoy some cheese curds for us.
