Making Monday – Buttons!

So, my Cosmic Pluto easy Topdown Raglan Cardi is blocked. All it needs now is a snap fastening to close it and a decorative button.

Lots of buttons


I rarely use more than one button on a cardi plus I admit, I am a bit lazy ๐Ÿ˜‰ But buttons create another dilemma because I just can’t decide which to use.

Gorgeous Mother of Pearl Moon from Liberty


Another decorated mother of pearl button


Carved soap stone hand


Wooden leaf


Carved wooden face


Big Ladybird


Bronzy faux metal


Crane button - I have two more of these


Carved Wooden Paisley


Faux tortoiseshell Spiral


Some of the buttons next to each other for comparison


At the moment I think I’m down to deciding between the Paisley and the spiral buttons. I bought them both from a stall at the Knitting and Stitch and Stitching Show in 2008. The others are from various places acquired over the years. It’s all too easy to get a “little” button collection going ๐Ÿ˜‰


Thanks for all the competition entries so far, guys. Remember it’s open until March 18th so there’s still plenty of time to enter.



Win some, you lose some

I arrived home from work today to find a parcel containing this

(adopts best Rolf Harris voice) Can you tell what it is yet?

It was my order from Cloth Kits. I checked out their site last week and couldn’t resist orderingย  these lovelies

Glorious polka dot buttons

There were 40 but there was a gust of wind while I was photographing them outside and I lost one! ๐Ÿ™ I now have 39. I hope to find the missing one in the garden soon! Still not 100% sure what I’m going to do with them yet but they’re so lovely, I just had to order them. I love me some polka dots.

I’ve also picked up my needles again after a bit of an absence and am now on the gusset of soxie sock 2


Apologies for the blurry pic. Once this is finished I’ll either cast on another second sock project or turn back to the Ysolda beret.

Oh, we were at the UK Pinball Party on the weekend and although we didn’t win anything, we had a great time ๐Ÿ™‚
