I found this great website, which is like an online, old-fashioned haberdashery shop. It’s called MacCulloch and Wallis, and although it’s based in London, it ships internationally. I have been looking all over the place for the perfect buttons for my Liesl cardigan, to no avail, until I found this site. This is what I chose:
I love these rose buttons, they look a little like loosely-wound balls of yarn, and I think they go really well with the knit pattern on this cardigan.
My other choice was these pretty flower-printed mother of pearl buttons. They didn’t look so good on Liesl, but will be lovely on a paler colour.
And here’s how my Liesl is looking so far. Asymmetry all gone, racer back all gone, and nearly full length!
We’re probably going to Copenhagen next week, and I really want to see if I can get this finished in time to take with me. Off now to knit.
