Several different buttons were delivered today. In fact, I have received five sets of buttons to marry with the Fair Isle hoodie project. Before this last shipment, I was zero for four. However, just as I was about to completely give up, the plain Jane, little plastic buttons that arrived this afternoon seemed to fit the bill!
In the background are the Czech glass ones that I was certain I was going to love, even though I was ten short of them, but the color was off, just a bit.
While in need of a little toothbrush love, the mottled green buttons, are perfect!
Remember one of the early contenders for the Fair Isle, these glass ones?
They found a home with the Madtosh Twist dk in Dr. Zhivago Sky! They actually have silver highlights. I think the gold tint from the picture below, is actually a reflection from my flash. They look really nice in person!
Lastly, I bought these greenish buttons on a whim, but I think they look lovely with the Deep Blue Teal Yowza from Miss Babs, don't you?
Okay, I am over the button thing for the moment.
Back to knitting!
