or my 5-button-dilemma…
Have you ever had someone in your life who keeps doing
the same thing over and over and it kind of bugs you for whatever reason and
you don’t know how to stop it? Now, this may sound petty but my friend loves to
give me buttons – she travels and buys them for me as a keepsake or souvenir –
and I know it’s the thought that counts but she always buys them in fives… and
they are usually like 5/8 inch and I need eight or nine buttons of that size
for a cardigan. My mother would say, ‘beggars can’t be choosers…’ or ’don’t
look a gift horse in the mouth’ (I never really got this one) but, here I am
with two perfectly nice cardigans and some perfectly nice buttons that aren’t
enough for either one.
Heavy sigh…oh, how ‘bout this? I’ll use two sets of the metal-looking
ones for the ‘poppy’ cardigan, alternating them so it will look like I planned
it and just buy eight new ones for the ginger cardi…
and I got my pound of yarn knit for this week!
All’s well that ends well…
