This afternoon, I was really tired. I was up way early this morning .. not even sure why . . probably that sweater calling to be finished. I got up as quietly as I could so as not to awaken Vince but, of course, I did wake him so we both needed naps this afternoon.
The minute I woke up from my nap, I grabbed the button container and started looking through buttons. Buttons can get expensive so I don’t have as many of those as I do ribbons. I would love to have a huge selection of buttons but my plan is to find yarn to go with the buttons I do have, and then I can order more buttons . . just to have a small stash of buttons, or, if I want to make a sweater and don’t have the buttons, once I get to the point of needing buttons, I’ll order them. You know how most of my plans go!
The yarn is Malabrigo Rios and the color is Reflecting Pool. I so wanted to use these little bluebird buttons but I think they’re better suited for fingering weight, or maybe sport weight yarn.
Back to the button box for more digging.
I like this one but . . I think I love the bottom one.
I don’t have a clue what pattern I’m going to use but I have to finish:
- Unicorn sweater
- Blue Sand
- Gift for a friend
- All of the Lights that Karen and I are starting October 1.
So, there’s probably no rush on deciding on a pattern for the Reflecting Pool yarn, right?
