Buttons and yarn

I’ve recently developed a great love of buttons.  I find myself in local shops buying up buttons – sometimes to finish a project, other times because I think they might find inspiration. So now I own a box of buttons, plastic, wood, shell, bone (the boys think this one is great!), metal – but don’t have any glass.  I even now own a few diamante ones (for when you feel like that little bit of extra bling).

I was trying to be good about buying new yarn but couldn’t resist a few to try from Garnstudio.   I got few balls of Ice to make a lacey summer shrug (I am finding these so useful, some gorgeous rust coloured Paris (don’t know what this will be yet) and a ball each of Eskimo and Silk Alpaca.  I have a feeling I’ll be getting more of these.  This yarn seems really reasonable for the materials uses….may be seeing more of it!
