Little bits of knitting

noro buttons

Tiny little pieces of knitting in Noro Silk Garden Lite, covering a variety of ugly or damaged shank buttons from the stash. I tried a covered button kit but the fabric was a bit too thick for it to work. But no matter, it was easy enough just to gather the edges and pull the fabric tight around a normal button - same way I did these.

Oh yeah, the odd one out here is plain 4ply cotton, crocheted.

I'm not sure yet what these are for (although there are also more on the way, it's hard to stop) - possibly some brooches.

They would look really cool on a plain colored sweater.
