Button, button who's got the button?

The answer to that question would be me!
My Mum came and visited for a few days and we went on a shopping spree around the yarn shops and mills in South Yorkshire. I've just taken some photos using my new camera (the old one decided to keep dying and coming back to life, so has been resigned to a drawer to learn it's lesson!), but my favourite shop of all was the button shop.

It's a little hsop that I discovered on Skip North last year and sells lots and lots of buttons, but best of all they have cards of old buttons by the box full that you just rummage through for 10p a card. I love buttons, I think I could never have too many, and you know that next time I knit something I'll still not have the right buttons!


My particular favourites-

Focusing on the positive

I just spent a weekend in the Lake District catching up with some good friends from uni, soem have now graduated, others are still studying, but I did have a really good time talking, drinking, climbing, laughing, walking, caving.... I mean it's hard to have a bad time when you're surrounded by people who think this is a good evening's entertainment!
