Comments about Product: I own several hand knit sweaters and this one is beautiful with perfect colors for fall. Other reviewers commented on tight button holes; they are snug which I would expect for a hand knit; I believe they will stretch out over time. Sizing is generous; if you are between sizes I would suggest ordering down. It just arrived today and I haven't worn it out yet, but I'm quite certain I'll be getting many compliments on this sweater.
Comments about Product: I wore this sweater from Sept - Nov and got compliments everywhere I went. It is much prettier than in the picture. It is exceptionally well-made, though I agree with the prior reviewer that the buttonholes are tight. I'm willing to overlook this tiny flaw however, because I suspect that in time they will loosen. Even if they don't, this is still a 5-star sweater to me.
Comments about Product: Although this is a very good quality sweater, the buttons do not fit the button holes. I have arthritis and I was unable to button and unbutton the sweater. I hated to do it...but had to return it.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
