Buttons. They can be so much fun but also such pain. To find the perfect button can be essential to a garment. What if you knit the perfect little sweater only to ruin it by using hideous buttons? That would be utterly sad.
I have a decent button collection. It’s not great but I have enough buttons to be able to choose from. I have buttons that look like pine trees, and heart, flowers and stars. Buttons in every colors and shapes. Big golden buttons and teeny tiny wooden buttons. But sometimes, less is truly more (and I am not someone who says that very often).
For my orange baby sweater, small black buttons worked out best. Anything else would simply have been too much.
