My needles are happy

Today we're having a quick break from all things christmassy! I'm back at work today and have something else on my mind (apart from wanting to go stray back home - honestly, we had snow yesterday afternoon and this morning, I couldn't believe it!!). A couple of weeks ago, I told you I was feeling a little knitting-deprived. Well all that was promptly put to an end this week. Oh yes, more happy knitting for me!! What you see below might ring a bell with those of you who've come here before. It might even make one of you super happy skippy-happy... Am I right?



The reason why I'm showing you this is because I want your opinion. When I made my first pair of mittens, I used cute little red buttons. Those buttons got such a great response, I reckoned I should put some on this pair too. I don't have enough red ones left, but I have plenty of other colours. Click on the photo below to enlarge it if you need to. I'd love to hear what your favourite colour combination is.



So we've got dark blue, light pink, dark green, purple, yellow, light blue, dark pink and orange. Sorry I really tried my best with the photos but as you can see with the change in tone of the background (the blue mitten), there's a bit of unwanted variation. And by the way, there's no reason why I need to use the same three buttons on each hand, we can mix and match! The possibilities are endless. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you think! Have a nice Thursday xx

Argh those buttons are far too cool! I love them all. They look fab on the mittens. I'd be adorning everything with those! Can't wait to see what you come up with. x

Where did you get the gorgeous buttons? They remind me of toadstools.
