Kelebek Front Band


If you want a closer look, click on the picture! This is hot off the needles and, as yet, completely unblocked.

I just finished the front band. I've crocheted and cut one armhole. The other is still untouched. I have a bunch of pictures of the process and tonight I'll try to get them formatted and blog-worthy.

I'm getting very excited to see it all done.

But there's a Murphy's Law about button stashes that I need to share. I have a lot of buttons in many varieties and sizes. Fancy ones, plain ones, antique ones and newer ones. Metal, mother of pearl, plastic, shiny, matte finish, etc. But I never seem to have exactly the right button in the quantity I need for a project. Why is that?

Looking good!!!

Well, at least buttons aren't as expensive as yarn right? Sometimes the same rule seems to apply to yarn as well.

I'll keep my fingers crossed that you have the buttons you want.

I think it looks amazing.

And the button thing? None of them are quite right because otherwise, you wouldn't have an opportunity to go shopping.

lovely lovely knit.
re the laws of nature and button and yarn stashes: I do so know what you speak of. Why is it never the right yarn or button is already there? It is a consipiracy of the universe to keep the fiber-y retailers in business.
