In the middle of the spare room clean-up, a distressing fact hit me in the face – I could not find my button stash. Nowhere. The bag they used to be kept in? I moved them. But where? I checked the yarn bin, and came up empty (admittedly, there was a ton of crap in there).
So last night I was weaving in the ends of my sweater, and knowing that I would reach the moment when I wanted to have the buttons put on my sweater with the little backing button bought especially for this. And magically, the Yarn Harlot started a little tweet fest while her oven was warming up. So I asked her
@YarnHarlot where did I hide my button stash? Can’t find it.
And she replied:
@reneerico Tin on the bottom shelf. (Wait, that’s mine.)
So true. And then I realized that my first instinct, that I had put the small baggie of buttons with the yarn bin was probably correct (and I am not so good at thoroughly looking in that first place. The magic of the Yarn Harlot, I tell you!
And now my sweater has buttons and is a complete FO (rav project details for Hey Teach):
The button stash is now clearly marked!
