buttons!


Button,button who has a button? Me! Sheila Ernst and her husband(www.glasspens.com) made this and sent it out to me to finish off my cardi. Lisa Souza was raving, but you truly cannot appreciate these babies until one is in your hand. Sheila purposely offset the shank so it would hang better on my cardi. It was worth every penny!!! I am going to have to find reasons for more of Sheila's buttons.

The last time I did(one) toe up sock I swore never again... Well never is a long time so I started one. this sock yarn was expensive so I want to eek out every yd possible. I'm using a free toe up pattern from Elann. It is a chevron pattern. I thought it would show the stripes off very nicely.

Ooh gorgeous button. I have one SE button I bought at MS&W last year and I have no idea where it will end up.

Wow! It would be worth it to design and knit and entire cardigan around a button like that. Fabulous!
