Another Sweater FO

Friday, May 30, 2008

Finally! It's blocking and awaiting buttons. I like the white buttons too but they are opaque and a little jarring in real life. I've been looking a little online but would like to use some from my button stash. I have a few translucent white buttons that look great but I don't have enough. Boo. There is one thrift store that seems to have a new jar of buttons every couple of weeks - I'm sure they cut them off of donated clothes that aren't in good enough shape to sell - so I will check there again maybe. It's been so humid and rainy here the last couple of days it will probably take forever to dry anyway!

Now I have no excuses to knit my possibly too tight Socks that Rock socks. They look great and are fun to knit but I've really been craving some easy, peasy stockinette projects lately and that they are not.

I'm also planning to start some Saartje's Booties. I have a handful of friends who are suddenly all due soon!

What exactly are you looking for in buttons? I've got several little half pearls and a lot of flat faced pearlescent ones in all different colors. I'd definitely be willing to send some your way if you'd like to see what I have.
