Tomorrow is Halloween and it is Game 6 of the World Series, what am I going to do? They are on the same day and same time. I have decided Halloween will take a back seat this year because I can celebrate it every year, but I can't celebrate my Dodgers in the World Series every year.
You make a garment and need to make buttonholes, we all know the simple one knit 2 together and yarn over and then pick up the yarn over on the way back for a small button. Or we cast off and then cast on on the way back. But they never quite look right. Well these buttonholes are beautiful and next time I need some I am going to try this method. Looks like it will take a few minutes but you don't want a beautiful cabled sweater with crappy looking buttonholes.
I always walk through the yarn aisle in Wal-Mart to see if they have anything marked down to use for my charity projects. I had read a post about a new yarn they had. I did find it in a couple colors and bought a skein of purple to try. The name is Mainstays and it is acrylic. It says use a size 9 needle but that would be way too large. It is a light worsted almost like a DK. It is scratchy and kind of a limp yarn. It was cheap at $1.97 for 397 yards. It was ok but not likely I would buy it again for the scratchiness and gauge it does not produce. But if you are looking for a cheap yarn for something this would be the one to get. It is distributed by Wal-Mart but made in you got it China.
