Knitting1

Abracadabra!

Have to decide whether I want all orange, all purple, some of each to go with whatever colour background is in each position, or hope for the miracle of finding bicoloured orange and purple buttons that actually match the shades of the yarn.

And, because I can't let the newly-freed needles get cold and lonely (plus if it's gonna keep snowing, I need colour therapy) ...
