Looky what I got!
I love getting packages in the mail! Especially when they contain such wonderful little gems like these. The talented glass artist at Glastonbury Glassworks whipped these buttons up specifically for the ribbon cardigan. I am thrilled with them!!! The clear body of the button allows the yarn to shine through but the vivid blue around the petals of the flower add the sparkle to make the buttons pop out of the background. I absolutely love them. Check out their stock, as there are many more styles. I am hoping to add a few more styles to my stash in the near future, budget permitting, of course.
Well, I guess I know what I'm going to be working on next. Unfortunately, once the back was finished, I calculated how much more yarn I'd need and I didn't have enough in my stash. I have ordered more from Webs. However, since I couldn't get the same dye lot, I'll be alternating rows of the old and new up the fronts and on the sleeves of the cardigan, just to blend the dye lots. Thus, I have to wait until the yarn I ordered arrives to continue work.
And just when I was so re-energized . . .
