Antlers and Toggles and Tomtens, Oh My!

As the Adult Tomten is nearing completion, I wanted to take a special moment to honor its buttons:

Adult Tomten Buttons

Did I mention that my husband is picky? It took over a week of serious googling for him to find exactly the right thing, and for a while we thought he would have to make them himself. These toggles are made from the antlers of the kind of deer they have at the ranch. We ordered them from here. (Deer naturally lose their antlers annualy, so no deer were harmed in the making of these toggles.)

With any luck, I'll be sewing them on today.

I can't wait to see it completed! The yarn is so yummy.

As for the buttons, at least your husband will truly appreciate it, you know? Much better than 'oh any ole' button will do'. :)

I think the buttons will look cool Except when I first saw them I thought maybe they were teeth. "oh- any ole tooth will do" I crack me up.
