gift on a thrift

Gift buttons on a thrift aran.

Someday the perfect yarn and the perfect pattern will call out to these beautiful dyed mother-of-pearl buttons. Until then, I think they'll do just fine here.

The rest of the felted aran sweater will become...? A pillow? A purse? a blanket? time will tell.

Thanks, Nancy, for the buttons specially chosen for me.

Thanks, Katie B, for the sweater. A well-made if non-descript pattern, slightly felted and donated charity. Rescued and further felted, it will live on.

I love the buttons. They are so pretty. I think that folded and sewn into a purse with the buttons just as they are, would be a great gift.
