These buttons I scored on ebay. They are made from bakelite, and look very art deco to me! Really chuffed!
Now, what should I make to put them on? Probably the 60ties cardigan from stitchcraft I’ve been toying with for quite a while … but be still, my beating heart! A little bit patience, as I have reached my WIP limit at 4.
Strictly speaking, I’ve set myself a 2 WIP limit, with a third as an exception. One knitting, one crochet, and if either one is particularly demanding, I’m allowed to have a “braindead for the achievement” on the side. Like that little pair of socks I whipped up over the course of one weekend.
How can you have so many WIPs, you just frogged the mohair jumper, I hear you ask. Well, see, not only did I frog the jumper, but of course replaced it immediately with The Real Simple Sweater I’ve been wanting to make for a while.
And of course His Majesty’s Blanket is not finished yet – although I’m making good progress, and am now leaning towards a victorian knitted lace edging – if you have opinions on that matter, I’d love to hear them. I’m a wee bit indecisive.
And last, but not least the Granny Square Project.
I’ll elaborate on both of those, the socks and the granny squares, on another day. Today, I just wanted to share my lovely buttons. Now I’ll wrap them up and store them with the other lovely buttons.
Happy Sunday, everybody!
