A real button

So, the day that I wore my new crocheted wrap to work, I was totally honest with everyone about the fact that my "pin" was a $2 barrette from Target, and was a temporary solution.

A couple of days later, one of my coworkers, Jean, came over to me at lunch with her button stash and told me that I was welcome to poke through to see if she had anything I could use for my wrap. (If I haven't mentioned it, I work with a fantastic group of people.)

An actual button

I had been picturing this with some kind of metal knotwork button... and ta-da, a metal knotwork button was in there! :D Thanks, Jean!

Jolene had a baby sweater with her this evening, and it involved steeks. We each took a turn cutting it...

Nifty technique! If I ever whittle down my to-do list, perhaps something steeked will be on the horizon...

And lastly... I just got my first WoW character to level 60 over the weekend. 10 more levels, whatever rep and key quests I have to do, and I can finally start RAIDING, which I'm very much looking forward to. I've been hearing all about my guild's Karazhan runs since May. I wanna go too. And I wanna help figure out how to stomp Gruul. ;)

Congrats on leveling! I turned off my WoW subscription this morning, on the grounds that I'd be better spending the time on knitting, reading, plotting world domination, etc. I'm easily hooked on mmorpg's, and it makes my knitting really, really jealous ;-)

garts on 60! My drood hit 54 this weekend. I am anxious to get her to the outland and dreading doing all those quests yet again at the same time.

OK - I must be really out of it - I thought the comments above mine were not in English....

that is so neat she let each of you take a "snip"! love the new button (though the old barette wasn't too shabby!)
