~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? ~ Ginny
(button from Walnut tree)I've started working on the "My favorite things" scarf - I had the pattern saved on my pinterest board for a long time so I've decided it's the perfect scarf for next winter.
School has started so I'm back to reading notes from lectures and textbooks, nothing too interesting to share...
I've been busy last week uploading photos of buttons on Etsy.
My uncle who's been creating wooden furniture and decorations all his life made few buttons for my knitting projects some time ago and I love them.
He's currently unemployed and when he's not taking care of the garden or helping grandma, he spends his free time in a little wood-shop next to their house.
I wanted to share his creations with the world, and he agreed to make few more buttons for you guys!
they are made out of walnut wood and the designs are burned so they will last even with frequent washing and use.
He made some big buttons with Christmas themed decorations - they would be great to add a final touch to the cowls, hats or sweaters you'll be knitting as Christmas presents this year.
I've put them up on Etsy this early because some people - just like me - need to start working on christmas projects NOW! to have enough time to finish them on time.
and he also made few sets of smaller buttons - just in time to be added to snuggly autumn knits. It's been raining all week here and I'm knitting like crazy.
I hope you'll take your time and visit the Etsy shop, or our facebook page. We'll post coupon codes and other discounts on facebook during the year, as well as new offers and special collections.
and if you like some of the buttons, don't hesitate to get them - we offer free worldwide shipping until the end of September - coupon code AUTUMN2013
all the buttons were hand-made with love and so they'll be perfect for the hand-knits for the holidays.
thank you for stopping by and reading my post.
