I'm particularly proud of the buttons, which I found in a local antiques shop. I try to recycle buttons wherever possible but after perusing the trays of buttons arranged by colour, thought I wouldn't be able to get some of exactly the right colour. But then I spotted a box on the bottom shelf containing bags of coat buttons. I hunted through the collection and found these - 3 for £1. There were actually four buttonholes on the cardi so since I only had three, I closed up the bottom one with some swiss darning. .
I'm also planning my next project, in hemp...
