These buttons are not what I had in mind but I couldn't locate anything better. The color is "hot pink" and not red as in the pic. Now sewn, I do like them better. In the back of my mind I've been wanting to try polymer clay and make my own buttons. Will someone please take my temperature? I need another hobby like I need a hole in the head. I knitted this simple rolled brim hat to go with the neck warmer. It was a simple and quick knit and I'm very happy with the hat. I usually like my hats simple.
My anemia is beginning to resolve itself with my iron supplements. As a result, I ran around like a mad woman this weekend getting a lot of things done. It felt so good to get to those tasks. Speaking of anemia...that mannequin head needs some of my supplements, you think?
I actually completed four UFO's (unfinished objects) this weekend. I have so many of them that I stopped putting them on Ravelry out of embarrassment. However, I did start two more projects. One is a must but I feel guilty starting the second. More details soon.
Can someone tell me if when I respond to a comment someone has left on my blog, and it says (no comment/no reply) next to their name, if it still goes through to them? I've wanted to reply to several new readers this week but not sure how to go about it.
