Here is it finally!
I have repeatedly sought help with this pattern from you gals, screamed, cried, pulled my hair out, frogged so many times I feel intimately connected to Kermit by now, but the Beatles sweater is finally finished!!!!!!!!! We bought him this turtleneck to go with it and the just released "Love" CD from the Cirque Du Soleil show in Vegas. It has like 26 Beatles songs so he can "Revolution" as much as he wants now and be "Yah, Yah, Yah" in style. It isn't perfect and I did find a couple tiny booboos when sewing on the buttons and patch, but there is no way I am tearing anything else out. It is too small to notice and there is way more love in this sweater than there are mistakes. Merry Christmas, Thomas and Nonny loves you!!!

That is really cute! I've been wondering what the Beatles sweater was that you had on your OTN list. The patch and buttons are great, where did you ever find them?

I looked everywhere for buttons with Beatles stuff and no luck. I went through pages of Google then saw something for EBAY and this guy in England sells China collectors thimbles and such and had these. They are china as well, and probably for collector's but they had a shank so I was thrilled to get them. I thought they were perfect for a kids sweater because they are the old 60's cartoon characters. When I was looking for buttons, I had looked at a Canadian site that sold all kinds of Beatle stuff and remembered seeing a patch that matched the buttons and went back and bought it. For a little kid he is nuts about the Beatles (his parents are fans and he has listened to the music since babyhood) anyway, I thought this would be a great present, but truthfully as many problems as I had I wasn't sure I would get it done in time.
