I made a last minute button change decision. The original choice was bright red, but this one was bigger and more sophisticated. I don't regret the decision.
I went to my local yarn shop to get yarn for some more of my projects and received some surprising deals! I got enough yarn for two hats and a scarf, PLUS two vintage knitting books for under $20! Yay!
The yarn I bought for the scarf reminds me of a candy cane. When I work with it, I use my peppermint lotion, so when the recipient wears it, it will smell like a candy cane too!
