Button It

Knitting has restarted on the RYC Lux jumper... on the 2nd sleeve then have to knit them into the body one-piece raglan style. Not had a huge amount of time for knitting of late but at least it is plodding along.

At spinning guild yesterday I did a button making workshop. Above are my attempts at a Dorest and a Yorkshire Button. The Dorest button is the one made over a ring, the Yorkshire is stuffed. Quite pleased with this new skill, but will need to practice a bit to master it.

I also bought some Soya tops for spinning, looks beautiful but slippy.
