kauni update

I've been knitting a 1/2 a repeat on the kauni per night...

(by 1/2 a chart I mean the full heart pattern and 4 straight rows or the full diamond chart and 4 rows)

it's going pretty fast this is what I had this morning:

it's up to (35 cm in the pic)

since then I've reached the armholes put those sts on a holder and started the next bit of the chart... I love it... so much I went shopping for buttons this afternoon. Buttonsgalore on etsy always has great buttons... thats where I got the buttons for my Mr. Greenjeans cardi (raverly link)
these are the buttons I picked out for the kauni.. kinda plain yet pretty too... and the yarn will show thru the open bits.
and while I was there these and these caught my eye too...
now I don't know how it happened but they were in my cart when I went to pay!!
does that ever happen to you too???
now I have to knit sweaters to
so whats a girl to do??
buy more yarn....
I didn't but it did cross my mind ;)
till next time...

Your Kauni looks fantastic! And I love the buttons too! You used a different pattern for the Kauni, others have those squares. I like the heart motives. :o)

It's coming out lovely so far! I love the little hearts. They make me squeal inside a little. Lol! This makes me want to give fair isle a shot but I'm too much of a instead I'll stalk around that etsy store because there's some really yummy looking goodness around there! :)
