I bought a jar of old buttons in an antique store a few years ago. In it were several of these turquoise colored buttons. It's a good match.

Now, on to something new for 2008.

  2. That is very nice. I think I'll have to knit one or two or lots in the near future.

    Looking forward to seeing the new projects!

  4. Isn't it fun to see how things turn out in your own handspun? It never gets old ;o)

  6. Ooh, I love your calorimetry. That yarn is so pretty! I made one for my dd last year and it was too big, though she insists she loves it and wears it. I did sew on an extra button so she could snug it up more in the back. I knew it wouldn't show with her long hair.

    I need to try another one with the changes.

  7. The calorimetry turned out really nice. The colors are just scrumptious! Love how it verigates ever so gently! I'll have to make one for my DD to go with her almost finished scarf. What are your next projects> Are they a secrect?

  9. What a fun project. I will have to look closer at that. I am blessed to have some great buttons passed down from grandmothers.

  11. What a beautiful color. My daughter always says that she wishes we lived somewhere cold so she could wear "cool" stuff. I think your calorimetry fits in that category.
