ok, so i broke the rules.

i know you're not supposed to go button-shopping until you've got a FO to reward yourself with, but somehow i found myself at windsor button this weekend. i managed to engage the behind-the-counter button-plucking duties of a patient staffer who pretty much has the arduous job of helping customers select from a (give-or-take) MAZILLION types of button items. it's a little crazy.

anyway, i'm so happy with these. they're a warm olive, and with a little wood-grain-esque variation in them. can't tell if they're wood or plastic, but they're very sophisticated, and bring out the green in the sweater. the fern, if you will.

i'm at the ribbing section of sleeve one. the hard and rock place of sleeves -- seaming or in-the-round. both have their ups and downs... i'm lucky i have short arms! :)

i'm doing mine in the round -- i've finished one, and i'm dreading the second. sigh!

OoOo, Nice buttons!
I ordered mine from Canvas Works maybe a month ago and I still haven't heard from them. Luckily, I still have a sleeve to do.
