I have an almost finished sweater: Burr, the same sweater Susan finished recently. I just need to weave in a few ends and sew on the buttons, and therein lies the problem.
I have buttons that I love with this yarn color. Here’s a photo when I was working on the button band and collar.
The problem, though, is that these glass buttons are as heavy as they are beautiful. Even when I sew them on with a small button to the inside for “balance,” they want to dangle or hang down a bit. If I button the sweater, they’ll be fine. But I know that I may not want to wear it buttoned every single moment. Here is another quickie photo of the buttons laid out on the (almost) finished piece.
I’ve experimented with other buttons, but I don’t love them the way I love the glass ones.
What to do?
PS from Susan — I had the same problem finding buttons. I ordered some and they were too heavy. I ended up with wooden buttons:
I do really like them now, but was disappointed at first because I had my heart set on something else…
