Nut-brown buttons a perfect finish
I finally finished my second Inca-Dincadoo Organic Cotton Baby Sweater. Although I forgot to make the buttonholes, I wanted to find some buttons that would give the sweater some character, so I headed to Old Wethersfield's Sit N Knit Too and their extensive collection of handmade buttons in all sizes and types.
I was drawn to the oversized wooden ones, and purchased three in a complementary nut color, sewed them on, and it was done.
Last Saturday over lunch, I presented the off-white and yellow sweaters to my brother for his August baby.
He loved them.
