I never knew it would be so hard....

To find a decent button!



I've been knitting on these Absinthe gloves a little over a week....they would have been done a while ago but aren't - mainly because I cannot find a button I like for the life of me!!!  So I finished the icords without the buttons and will just have to sew on buttons when I finally find what I like.....

I love all of Thea's patterns...which is evidenced by the many of them that I have knit .  And yes, I have a few that I need to show you (which I will after they are done drying from a rather aggressive wet blocking session....just so you know - 3 wool sweaters that have been soaked really good - and run through the dryer to shrink them up - smell really, really bad while they finish drying while being layed out on the sewing room floor).

These gloves I'll post more on as soon as I find some decent buttons.  I'm looking for vintage, cool and unique - and wal-marts and joann's don't have anything....may have to look on Etsy and Ebay tonight!!!!

Which would be a bummer as I love these gloves and have been wearing them all week WITHOUT buttons....

I would definitely try Etsy. Lovely gloves like those deserve proper buttons!
