I want to use some of the cast pewter buttons on knitting projects.
Sometimes, I just have to break out the yarn and put something onto needles.
I keep a bunch of 3x5 cards with me, and write down knitting patterns, so I can carry them with me in a little portable package.
This is a short neck cowl scarf, made in cotton yarn that looks like denim. I think it would be cute wrapped around the neck and fastened with a pewter button, just inside the neck of a coat or sweater.
This coral-pink square is a washcloth, for the bathroom or kitchen.
See the heart shape knitted into the center?
It's just easy enough to knit while watching TV or a movie, and just interesting enough to keep me going on it.
This last, smaller green one on top is the same pattern, but it's my hand dyed green cotton yarn and smaller needles. It would be a great shape and size for a washcloth. It's very lightweight.
I need to wash all three of these to fluff them up.
I think they'll be gifts later on this year. And all it took was two sticks, and some string!
