Off the Needles

I finished the cowl I was knitting whilst on the train to London last weekend.......which is just as well as it was for one of the friends that I was going to visit. I did however have to find some buttons for it and of course, where better than London to do a little button shopping.

I went to Cloth House on Berwick Street in Soho where I found the perfect buttons....a great colour to match the green of the cowl, the right size to fit through the holes in the lace knitting and with little curved edges to give them a little "je ne sais quoi".

Hopefully it will be nice and cosy for Karen's up and coming dog-sledding trip in Finland.

It's beautiful Di. Those buttons match perfectly. I'll be e-mailing soon -- it's warp speed ahead LOL!

It has already been tried on and looks fantastic! Thank you so much. All I need now is the warm jacket to tuck it into.

That is really beautiful! I hope your trip was good too! And dog sledding? I actually saw a sign for that when we were in Maine, but I am too much of a wimp to try it! I admire Karen for doing it!

Oh, it looks absolutely beautiful! I think she'll be very happy with that beautiful cowl.
