Do you love buttons?
Jill is Al's best friend. You know how a friend of your daughter or son can sometimes feel like your own, NOT IN A CREEPY WAY, over the years? Well, I just love Jill. She reads the blog and is a lurker. That isn't why I love her though, altho I am a fan of anyone who reads this little blog. This is her understated and lovely blanket. I think it is wonderful. Can you guess what yarn she is using? I'll bet you can't!
Next topic: I'm Meeting Major Knitter Jennifer from CT today. I'm not nervous. I just am pondering how I can manage to meet Jennifer to knit and yet Irisheyes Lynn and I can't manage to get together! (being on vakay helps)
Next topic: My knitting was insulted by my sister, yesterday. She doesn't read the blog. She didn't MEAN it, but she told me the decreases on the blue baby sweater were so noticeable she wouldn't give it as a gift. Well, didn't that just make my knit heart break....
Jill disagreed. (did I tell you I love Jill? She said the color was so pretty and it was a great sweater) . Now, I had purchased some little yellow star buttons to decorate the sweater. I sewed them on and I decided if I washed the sweater it would be all better. Well, the buttons all came off in the wash. The sweater washed beautifully. Still, I have won't be knitting with Berroco comfort again. Yes it is soft, but splitty and has that shiny acrylic look that Al despises. As for buttons, I"m giving them away.
I fight with buttons all the time. I'm having a little button giveaway. Do you love buttons? Do you love to add them to your knits? I have a few buttons to give away. I'm not knitting anything with buttons again for a long time.
And I'm not saving them for someday. I think I'll look through the comments and just give them to one of you. So, regulars, who loves buttons and uses them?
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
