Victorius Veyla

Veyla is done! And I LOVE them!Sorry about the craptacular picture- I finished them up at 10 pm and didn't want to wait to show you. And it's damn hard taking a picture of your own hand. I will get Mom to take some proper shots later this week.

Many of you know how I feel about buttons. They can easily make or break a project. (Check out some of the other Veyla's on Ravelry to see what I mean) .And these gloves are so pretty the buttons had to be PERFECT.

Since Tux's recent adventures have pretty much drained my bank account for the next eleventy billion years, I wasn't really in a position to buy buttons at the moment. But, Mom to the rescue again. She let me raid her buttons jars and I found these
PERFECT! I had not considered brass at first, but we put them on the glove and I knew they were the ones.

I've got some new socks on the needles, and I intend on making some headway on fable this week - but you'll have to wait to see more on those.

Wow, those knit up quickly! Isn't it great having access to a button jar? Every button seems to have its own story.
