unpredictable/transformable

"We cannot become what we need to be by remaining what we are" Max De Pree So I changed my mind. With all of your input. The other buttons went... these remain. Really, it was an after thought. I had fully intended to use the others... but there were only 7 ... I need 8... so I was looking for a substitute... the rest is history. I bought these in Maine a long time ago some sort of antler each button unique in shape, but similar in tone...the right tones for my etole... etole transformable from La Droguerie my Autumn etole... clearly transformable.. a shrug, a scarf, a wrap of sorts... I don't feel comfortable publishing the pattern. it was a gift. What I can tell you is it is basically a long rectangle... garter stitched edges. buttonholes...and 4 buttons... either side easy...quick do it in 15 hours minutes... you can figure it out... you are unpredictable,no? transformable,yes? try it...

Oh, I like these buttons even better! It looks so elegant on you. I was so disappointed that mine was too thick to wear as a scarf. I was so taken with that photo of someone who wore it that way. But it is fabulously warm and cozy.

beautiful. i love antlers. you can make buttons or earring or...all kinds of stuff. deer shed them every year. so they are plentiful and replenishing!
You have some interesting timing, T. Guess what I just cut on my band saw this morning.... :D I'll post pictures soonish.

Beautiful choice, as always, and your photography makes everything magical.
