Ok...maybe not, but it wouldn't surprise me. I think they're playing a colossal cosmic trick on me from beyond the grave. Why else would every button I choose from the family button box - chosen to honor all of them, mind you - have exactly ONE less button than I need for whatever project I'm working on??? Just look at this:
I could just go out and buy buttons, it's true...but I really like to use the buttons handed down to me as much as I can. And I really had some great button ideas for this project, Mavis Adams' Button-Up Neck Warmer. In the end, though I couldn't use any of the cool green buttons I wanted, I was able to settle on these...and my quickie Grapevine neck warmer was a success
I also started knitting on the Citron Shawl, and I'm lovin' it!! I decided to use that Crystal Palace Mini Mochi I had lying around. Yes...that yarn I hated so much after knitting the Pretty Thing cowl with it. May I change my mind??? On #7 needles and using the Citron Shawl pattern, the Mini Mochi is an absolute dream!! I'm already planning two other Citrons using some other colorways of Mini Mochi - I am in love!!!
