Which, if any?







Do any of these buttons work?

Why do I have such a hard time picking out buttons? I see other people with cool, big buttons on their scarflette, neck thingy, whatever you call this, and love the effect. I look at these and think, I don't know, does this look ok?

I made this using the new peg loom. I really like the loosely woven texture and look of this. There will be more.

We are having thundersnow and lightning right now. It's coming down like crazy out there. I was out to do chores before it got too deep, and my cleats failed. I came down hard on my elbow. Just remember that it is always better to divide whatever you're carrying between two buckets to help keep your balance better. That's your tip of the day, two buckets, even if it could be carried in one. Two buckets!

I like the middle button the best.
I know, buttons are hard, but you can always swap them out if you change your mind down the road. :-)

I hope you at least took the tumble in some soft snow. Darn.

Stay in now and keep warm. Time for a hot chocolate break, maybe??

The middle brown button works best with the organic quality of the collar, which is by the way, fabulous!!!

Button picking always gives me fits too! I like the middle one best so far - how about a non-shiny one that picks up the green in the yarn?

Another vote for the middle button. Love the colors of the collar!

Definitely the middle button. And I love the color and texture of the collar.

Annette said...

Ooh. The top and largest button is very striking.

Annie, I hope your elbow is OK! Be careful!

I like all three of them. The woven texture is great.

sabine said...

The first one. Definitely. It fits perfectly!

Mary said...

The first one. It has a vintage and dramatic look that suits the scarfette.

Lily said...

Actually, I'm not keen on any of them! Could you make a button out of the yarn by knitting or crocheting a disc then gathering it up over a small ball or disc?

It's all about the look and your taste. I love the top button, but all three look great. I love the look of the neck warmer. It's so pretty. And, take care. You always feel like you should have been able to avoid the fall, but sometimes it just happens.

I'm with the middle button voters. But I just love the scarf itself, no matter what button you put on it! So beautiful! You're a weaver now!
