Actual Knitting Content

I have been knitting. Really I have.

I found buttons for Juliet. I don't know if they are going to be too small. In this picture they look sort of lost. Although a truck would look lost in all that garter stitch. My original plan for the buttons was to go with a bright green color. That was......until I saw these fancy silver ones. Then all the plans for green went out the window. I needed three and there was only three available. I say it was meant to be.




I have the first side of my Counterpane Bag done. I am loving the colors. You really can't go wrong with Noro. I should be close to finishing the other side of the bag tonight. Then I need to shop for handles and some fun fabric to line the inside with. So I will take a trip on down to JoAnne's Fabrics with my 40% off coupon in hand.

love the buttons. Oh - and how many skeins of Noro did you end up using for that bag. I, of course, went and bought a few after I saw your post on it. I only got four and wondered if it would be enough for a decent sized bag. What do you think? LOVE how yours looks.
