FO Friday 20.10.17

First of all, apologies for the quality of these photos. I have been doing battle with this thing so long that it’s now completely dark outside.

It’s all because of buttons.

I have a lot of buttons. A lot. I spent a couple of evenings sifting through them trying to find a style that 1. I liked 2. went with the cowl colours and 3. I had enough of. You wouldn’t believe the number of buttons I have in sets of four, and of course this needs five.

I finally managed to narrow it down to two options; lovely brass and shiny purple.

But I just could not decide between the two, so off I went to instagram and facebook and had a poll. It was close for a bit, but then purple took off and became the clear winner.

But (of course there’s a but) while attaching said buttons, there was a casualty

I haven’t got any more of these.

So the choice wa made for me; this baby got brass buttons.

But nobody told me how different attaching buttons is when it’s knitting rather than crochet.

And why is weaving in the ends so difficult?

What am I doing wrong??

Anyway it’s finished at last, and ready to go into the shop when I can get some proper photos. Phew.

Who’s ready for the weekend (me me me!)? Got any FOs this week? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Oh, the joy of a button tin! Happening upon some suitable buttons for a project is always a nice feeling. Iโ€™m with you on the yarn ends and always try to weave them in as I go. Looks great with the brass buttons โ€“ shame about the purple one though.

      1. I have several button tins, too, but have vaguely separated them into โ€˜modernโ€™ and โ€˜traditionalโ€™ so itโ€™s a bit easier to find what Iโ€™m looking for:)

  2. Sewing on buttons is definitely a pain! I really like how the brass ones look with that yarn. I’m with you on having a ridiculous amount of buttons, but none that match. ๐Ÿ˜› That’s a beautiful cowl! ๐Ÿ™‚
