Buttons

I was very pleasantly surprised at the nice buttons I found at JoAnn Fabrics.  They have a really nice new selection of modern buttons that worked great with the hats.  They are now winging their way East.  I would definitely make this pattern again. Specs on these – Knitpicks – Shine worsted in Grass and [&hellip…
