Button Give Away Winner!

These are my treasured, private reserve buttons. They are all that remain of my Grams button box, saved by little Melissa soooo many years ago. I horded them away in little baggies, change purses and old pill bottles, waiting to be rediscovered by the grown up me. I was just as excited by them as an adult when I came upon my little forgotten treasures as I cleared out my childhood bedroom. Since then, more than a few pretty buttons have found their way into my treasure trove and I'm excited to share some of them with one of you! I used the random number generator to select the button give away winner, Vivian you won! If you'll post your email address, (I won't publish it of course) I'll get in touch with you so I can get those buttons right out to you! Congratulations!

I've been working on a number of projects lately, including this lace shawl. I participated in a mystery KAL over in Ravelry, which sort of overlapped with the Tour de Fleece, so my knitting was given very little attention as a result. I'm plugging away at it again, it wont be too much longer since it's not a very large shawl. The pattern is Mystic Midsummer Wreath by Anna Dalvi. This was my first mystery KAL and I really enjoyed the process. It definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone since I had to knit on faith that I was doing it right. I rationalized that as long as I kept having the correct number of stitches for each repeat, I must be on the right track.

I hope you are all enjoying the weather, I know I am! It's been nice to get back outside and tackle some of the fleece that has been waiting for me.

Have a wonderful weekend! Blessings Friends!
