I have....a Kauni!!!
Those robot buttons really are the business and make it look extra special. It's been an epic journey but I am so thrilled with the result. It's definitely my finest knitting achievement to date.
I went to Greenwich today and I treated myself to a little haul from the button stand in the antique market by the Rivington. Ooooooo.
They were between 45p and £3 per card. These were the cheapest and probably my faves.
Beautiful pale blue with knitted texture. So twee!
I also scored some beautiful trimmings. The middle one is silk and amazingly beautiful. The one on the right is quite wide and really really lovely.
It's all things a woman at the market has had in storage for ever since her mum did a lot of sewing and knitting. Another gem was this, still in its original packaging.
A freebie from an ancient woman's weekly. It's for hanging a ball of yarn from your wrist. At 50p I couldn't leave it forlornly on the stall!
