Ta da!

Presenting Jim's Hoggett Vest

This sweater was a very satisfying knit. Just enough to keep up interest but not so much that it needed to stay on the table for concentration.
 The back story is in the previous post.

I asked Jim to make buttons for his vest expecting wooden ones.  Instead he chose to cut up some deer antlers.  They are subtle and beautiful. Jim glued them onto shank buttons so there would be enough height for the button looping.

Now on to other Holiday knits.

That's really beautiful. He has got an eye cause those buttons were just the right thing for the vest.

I love this vest and the buttons match so well. How unique to have buttons made from antlers!
