The Great Button Debate

Despite being slowed down a bit by several custom orders through the shop, the knitting is finished.  It’s now button time.  Isn’t amazing how drastically buttons can change the feel of a piece?  I thought I had found the perfect set, but at a total of six within my collection I was shy the seventh needed to complete this sweater.  So we have the runners up.  I think I’ve made my decision.

I picked up The Gargoyle from the library, which Jasmine recommended in this post and compulsively devoured the entire book.  At one point I found myself weighing the over-under on seriously injuring myself if I attempted continuing to read while chopping vegetables.  Common sense and a modicum of self-preservation won out.  That and the knowledge that one of the kids was bound to walk in on me and point out that I would never in a million years let them do such a thing, which is true enough.

    Knitting and reading yes! reading and cutting vegetable, no! Beautiful pattern on the cardigan. The buttons in the last picture really caught my eye.

    Yay! I’m so glad you liked The Gargoyle! It’s such a nice surprise when someone else loves a book you love.

    Beautiful sweater! Those buttons are very classy.

    Thank you all for confirming I made the right button choice!

    Heather- I often can’t, but I was somehow in a groove with this one. Some part of my brain went on automatic pilot. I kept looking at it in the next day, expecting to find that I’d messed up the entire night’s knitting and being shocked to find I hadn’t. I have no explanation.
