Of course, now that the weather is warming up, I am finally finishing up some WIPS! Wink

I made this cowl and matching wristwarmers and decorated them with those odd leftover metal buttons...I even had a few from my Dad's old army uniform from the 1960's!
The pattern was from Crochet World...I added a thumb to the wristwarmers since I like them.



yep--nine buttons per wristwarmer!  and I messed up and had to do one hand TWICE! Grin


Thanks for looking!

Inspiration without application is moot.

Wow, I love the juxtaposition of the bright metal buttons against the dark reds of the yarn.
