cozy!

hat season is rapidly approaching so i have started the yearly task of knitting a new hat for each member of the family.
i decided to knit them in the order of smallest to largest this year~ i finished harper's hat last night. i weaved in the ends and made the little tassle just before bed time so i thought i'd quickly try it on him and maybe take a photo or two. just as soon as i tied it under his chin he ripped it off and threw it on the ground and started to cry. hmmm, not exactly the response i was expecting. i was happy that after a full night of sleep he awoke with a new appreciation for his new hand knit hat.

this is the giving pixie hat from little turtle knits. they are the cutest little hats, as you can clearly see! the yarn is super soft single ply merino from 100purewool.

and i finished my cropped cardigan! this is 28thirty from zephyr style. the yarn is peace fleece in the grassroots colorway. i love the pattern, i love this yarn and i love my sweater!

i am notorious for completeing a project like this and then letting it sit for weeks and weeks waiting for just the right buttons. but not this time~ i found these pretty little wood buttons at the fabric store and knew they would be just perfect...


and they are!

Those are nice buttons! I love searching for buttons, and it's gotten to the point where I can't let myself search for buttons on e-bay. Do you have a favorite pair that you simply can't seem to use for a piece?
