Finshed! (Except for Maybe Some Pockets)

I bit the bullet and bought a couple of extra skeins of Berocco Vintage Chunky to finish up the sweater for The Youngest.
If the dyelot was overly different I could have been okay with using it on the button bands, and I would just have used the contrast variegated yarn to finish the sleeves.
However, miraculously, the new dyelot was a pretty great match.
So, now I have some extra yarn and I thinpk the sweater wouldn't suffer from a couple of pockets.

It did turn out pretty cute, if I do say so.
I ran out to the fabric store and my friend Rebecca helped me choose the perfect buttons.

There are a couple of finishing touches that may or may not happen. 
Every butterfly needs antennae. I added some to the bottom row of butterflies, but I don't know if I have the stamina for the entire yoke. 
Then I also was thinking about adding pockets, because what self-respecting 3 going on 4 year old can go without pockets?
That's a project for tomorrow, though. 
Sleep well out there, I'm 'bout to hit the hay.

I totally agree with you, Jess, that is a darling sweater. While I'm sure pockets would be appreciated, it is fine just as it is.

Adorable! I think I would just add antennae randomly, not to all. So lucky to have a match!
