An Art Button Succeeding!

When frozen out of my unheated glass studio, I keep creating to keep the inspiration flowing for when the studio thaws out. Curious about cashmere, I bought a few skeins of Debbie Bliss 100% Cashmere yarn on sale at Webs. I wanted to create a one of a kind piece so I made my own crochet pattern.

Such lovely yarn deserved something special. So I hunted around until I found the perfect finishing touch - a lovely artist made button called A Button Succeeding from Mamacita Beadworks on Etsy.

I'd say this lovely button has succeeded, wouldn't you?

I'm a huge fan of Mamacita's buttons! I have quite the growing stash in my bead box.

This is a beautiful neckwarmer, very soft looking and wintery.

What a beautiful color! It looks so warm and soft. Mamacita's button just puts the icing on top.
One other can't go wrong with cashmere, I haven't knitted with it but I've seen some beautiful creations (it's sooo
expensive)..and one other thing I love the scallops on the ends.
