garmentless buttons

It was 8 September when I told you the story of my adventures at the Braderie de Lille, which ended with a box full of some lovely buttons. It’s sad, my friends, that I’ve only managed to photograph the buttons four and a half months later, but better late than never, eh? So, without any further ado, here are the lovelies I snatched up from that box and bought for some ridiculously small amount of money (if I remember correctly, the vendor had even given me a further discount simply because I hadn’t had the exact change to pay him in coins…).

Mismatched, yet matching.

Art Deco…

Star Trek :D

Large red tones…

Three of a kind

And my favourite colour combination lately – green and blue!

Pulling them out again and setting them in front of my camera reminded me how much I had loved these in the first place. I really must knit some garments to go with them!

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.

  1. Unph, so lovely. They’re going to turn some garment from something ordinary (or, as ordinary as handknitting could ever be), into something FIERCE :D

  2. Star Trek ones are wonderful. I can imagine just perfect setting for them :)
    BTW, I was on Hrelić just Sunday before last and there were oodles of stuff like that I slobbered over :) I promised myself no more hoarding but I think I’m gonna fall of that ol’ wagon soon ;-)
