Buttons

chbuttonsMy Charley Harper buttons arrived and I love them even more in person.  The colors are a bit richer than my flash on the camera is slowing to show since it’s reflecting off the glass on them.  They’re big – 1″ buttons and with the domed top it makes them look even a bit larger so I’m going to have to make a special sweater or two to use these on.  The butterfly on the bottom has a scallop metal  fitting around it — the rest all match each other and are more plain but I knew that when I ordered them.  The butterfly will probably be used on a sweater I want to make that has just one button at the top — or it would be cute on a quilted purse too.

And since I was updating some Ravelry project info, I remembered to take a photo of the other yarn I’m using for Spring Kerchief.

lacewtI think they will be pretty together you start with two strands of one yarn (my darker one I’m already kntting in the photo), then switch to one strand of each, and then to two strands of the lighter.  I’m anxious to see how it looks when there’s one strand of each.  Oh, and did I mention it’s a free pattern on Ravelry and really easy knitting?  Well it is! 🙂

I’ve decided today is going to be my lazy day (it’s already nearly 2:30 p.m. so I good think I didn’t decide it should be  really productive day!).  I did make it to the grocery store and back between rain storms but it’s back to dark and gloom and raining.  A comfy chair, a bit of knitting, some old movies may be the way to spend the rest of the afternoon.  But first, I’ve got some bananas that are not long for this world so I’d better go make them into some banana bread or something.
