I'm back from Day 2 at the Sewing Expo. I found a whole bunch of lovely buttons. Most of them were 50% off. I purchased these buttons with a "vision" for future hand knit projects. So, they won't go to waste. Here's the results of my two day's of digging in the button pile:
When I got home this afternoon, this was waiting for me...my City Tweed HW in Jacquard. Notice, I have recently purchased buttons already picked out to go with this yarn. Isn't the yarn lovely?
Here's an update of my Alpine. Back is finished.
Now, I'm still knitting the front left. I wanted to show one of the new buttons that happens to match Alpine nicely. The other button that I'm contemplating is the single orange button in the top photo, second from the left corner.
My head is still spinning from all the wonderful sewing information I've received. I still have one more day at the Expo with one more class to attend.
