Meanwhile, on the knitting front, I've sewn the buttons on the double wave cable cardigan/jacket and am awaiting a break in Isabel's schedule for photographs. If you follow this blog you may have observed that I'm a wee bit button-obsessed. I like buttons that echo the design in some way. So, here are the buttons I've chosen to go with this swirly-cabled pattern.
Buttons don't have to be expensive to be just right. I found these just a couple of blocks from my front door at Gwin Gryffon. Susan, the owner, seems to be on the same wave length as I am when it comes to buttons.
I love the way these have exactly the same feel as the cable.
I see that snow is predicted for the next few days here. Honestly, I feel as though we're trapped in the land of the White Witch (even at age 55, I'm still stuck with Narnia imagery!) WILL SPRING EVER COME?
