The Right Buttons

They just totally make the project, dontcha think?


Project Details:
Pembroke by Kristen Kapur
Published In:
Petite Purls, Summer 2009
Size: 6 Months
Yarn: Dream in Color Classy, Colorway Beach Fog. Used less than one skein.
Needles: Knitpicks Options Size US 5 (3.75 mm) and US 7 (4.5 mm)
Pattern Mods: Changed the cables to be symmetrical rather than twisting in the same direction


Project Details:
Pattern: Cabled Raglan Baby Sweater (Ravelry Link) by Rebecca L Daniles (Ravelry Link)
Published in:
Free download from Knitting Daily
Size: 6-12 Months
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino Colorway 008. Used just over two balls
Needles: Knitpicks Options, Size US 3 (3.25 mm)
Pattern Mods: Again with changing the cables. This time I switched them to weave back and forth instead of over and over

Grateful, even groveling, thanks to my mother. She found the perfect buttons in her stash for both of these projects, and she even sewed them on. Those socks are nearly done, mom, I swear!

Oh they are, to coin a phrase, as cute as buttons!

So cool! Both! And even cooler having someone else sew on the buttons!!!

They are so cute. I love the color of the vest and the buttons are perfect. You have been very prolific!

So cute! I have a baby sweater to knit and now I'm going to have to go on a quest for the perfect buttons. I hope your baby knitting is done so you can get back to your lace!

Oh - lovely buttons!
They are gorgeous - and from stash (even if it not yours)
Well done - they look beautiful and I am loving your pink sea creature shawl - I'm sure it has grown!
