DSis has bailed me out of having to go shop (and purchase) buttons for the BSJs Three by diving into her vintage button collection. So generous a soul you have never met. And I am seriously meaning that.
The choice is clear for this one. The grey buttons tie in the yarn color change required due to lack of yardage. Looks almost…planned! And I think I like it. From Rowan Cashsoft, and afterthought Alpaca, for Grandbebe 2…
And I believe I like these with this. This is from yarn I traded for on Ravelry. It is a Chinese synthetic blend, according to my translators. I like the tweedy look, but initially I was not sure how all those ‘spots’ in the skein were going to knit up! This is Grandbebe Girl’s BSJ #2, her first having been felted. Oops.
However, it is not clear at all for the last. Wonderful Guy and I have thrown our hands up in despair, and I am turning other resources for help. From Crystal Palace Crème, for Grandbebe Bean.
Which are favorite?
Please advise. I need outside opinions. I am at a loss.
I have even considered alternating! Save me from myself!
Other goings on...
Black Alpaca (3-ply, 120 yd/skein, 2 skeins, 10-12 wpi) Going to the Shoppe.
Merino/Bamboo/Tencel (2-ply, 190 yd, a prize batt from Kathleen in Peru) Staying Home!
Jacob Wool kind of scratchy to spin! Worked up with a lot of loft. (2-ply, 8-10 wpi, 3 oz/skein, 2 skeins) This will go to market.
Also there is the already aforementioned Alpaca Clouds, also Staying Home!
