Everyone (or everyone when I last looked) voted against the peacock, in favor of the dragonfly. I agree. I wanted to use the dragonfly but wanted a second opinion.
While i was sitting last night working on Addie’s second sleeve, I thought about another yarn that might work for the peacock buttons.
It’s a good match as far as the colors but the button gets lost on the yarn.
Then I saw this button in the pile and auditioned it.
Perfect! That yarn is also Madelinetosh Sport and the color is Firewood.
Lucky for the peacock, another yarn was in sight and it might work for the peacock button. I really want to use that button!
That’s Blue Sky Fibers’ Woolstok and the color is Pressed Grapes. Have I found the right yarn for this button? Only problem is . . I think I’ve started a sweater with this yarn and it’s a pullover. Maybe if I haven’t done too much on it, I’ll rip it out and come up with a cardigan so I can use these buttons.
