Thanks to a story that was on the Knitting Daily website. I now know how to make some custom made buttons. I'm always looking for the right button for some of my projects and I like ones that are original that you don't find everywhere. So making my own buttons was the perfect solution!!
I've made 3 batches of buttons so far and I've just been experimenting with size and color. If you want to try and make your own this is the link for the story: here
They were so fun to make and I'm so happy with the results.
I also made another knit hat that was in the new issue of Knitscene. It's called the Quantoid hat. I wish I had chosen colors that had more of a contrast (a darker blue for the main color). I ran out of the main color almost at the end of the hat and when I went back to the store where I got it from, they didn't carry that line of yarn anymore!!! So I finished the pattern with the secondary color, and the results were still good.
I've started knitting my sister's Christmas present. I really want to get a head start on my Christmas knitting so I'm not rushed to get everything done!!!
