first of all, thank you for all of the great advice on the buttons!! and compliments on the little sweater. i’m going to compromise – the little olive ones with the flower one on top.* we’ll see. i’m going to do some blocking first and then i’ll show you the finished finished product.
yesterday, before it got too hot, i sat on the porch and finished the first twirlies since the book one (ravelry link). both are made to what the book calls size small, which i think fits my size medium head just fine, thank you very much (22 in. around).
handspun from a batt from black cat handspun
i love how old fashioned these look!! i think the glasses might help ;)
my hand dyed handspun yarn
and one big old button which needed a good home
no embroidery on this one since the button is so spectacular. i really enjoy doing this pattern in handspun yarns, so if you’re thinking of trying it, consider giving some handspun a try.
have a great weekend! more name game come monday.
*EDIT cheryl was over today looking through the button collection for some buttons and we decided on the shiny little olive ones… finished pics soon!
