1  New York / New York: NYC and Long Island / Unusual buttons at retail? on: December 01, 2008 09:38:23 PM
I'm looking for rubber or other soft/flexible buttons.  I know there are some specialty trim/notions stores in the West mid-30s, but aren't they mostly "to the trade"?  Can anyone recommend a good place to buy retail?  Thanks if you can help.

It's beautiful!  And I second the hair ornament idea -- it would look like a spectacular giant flower!

I did a little test of the sewn bind off the way you mentioned, and it looks and feels nicer than I expected!  I don't look forward to sewing a 50" edge, though.  I may go with my second choice, the decrease bind off, and take your other suggestion to crochet over both edges.  Thank you for your help!

Short version:  Is there a bind off that looks similar to the cable cast on?

Long version:  I found a beautiful variegated yarn sold by the bag, and decided to make my first afghan.  My swatch fibbed to me, and instead of a 40" x 60" rectangle it looks like I'm getting a 50" x 50" square.  No problem, I'll turn it sideways so the stripes from the variegation run vertical instead of horizontal, then pick up and knit borders to lengthen it.  It should work even better than my original plan!

But now the cast on and bind off will be the exposed side edges.  I did a pretty neat cable cast on and I'm kind of proud of it, so to keep things symmetrical I'd like the bind off to look similar, if possible.

Thanks if you can give me any suggestions!

I'd like to thank the previous poster and confirm, they did indeed move right across the street!  The new address is 360 Broadway.  It's a bit smaller, but they still have a good selection of relatively inexpensive yarn from Lion, Bernat, Patons, etc., and now some more natural fibers as well -- I went looking for Patons Canadiana (acrylic) but had to "settle" for Patons Classic Merino instead.
