It seems to be a strange combination of things I am showing today. The connection between the socks and the buttons is France. I made the ribbed socks with handdyed yarn by Tinkus. They were a present for my French colleague who organised the project meeting in France. I bought the buttons in a small yarn store in Valenciennes which was very nice. The owner even spoke German after my colleague made her understand that she did not speak French at all (which was not true as she had picked up some French during our stay - even "Je voudrais" in the subjonctif - if spelled like that). Then we talked a little about different knitting techniques in Europe and showed each other how we hold the needles. I bought the buttons because I have plenty of yarn anyway.
