Fait...

... accompli!
My "me knit" is done and I am very, very happy!!

Now, if the temps could just rise above -25 degrees celsius I just might be able to wear this darling.....
I selected very simple mother of pearl buttons to stay in keeping with the simplicity of the design. Though I originally pulled out round ones I finally decided on square with softly rounded edges.

The buttons were an Ebay acquisition from one of my favourite sources for all things mother of pearly.... Vincy Ming
Not only do they offer wonderful things for embellishing, prompt service and very reasonable prices, but what arrives in the mail are lovely little "gifts" themselves....


wrapped in pretty paper...

with beautiful stamps from an inspiring far away place...

Beautiful. Classic. You'll enjoy wearing this, I'm sure! I know what you mean about a "me" project. As a new shop owner, I knit less than ever (too much business stuff getting in the way).

Love your patterns, too!
