My youngest daughter is expecting a boy the first of June. So I'm making some boy things. I don't know what they will like and what will fit at the season it will be needed. I haven't made a lot of boy things since out of the 7 grandkids so far, we only have one boy. IOW I don't know who it is for yet. Maybe the grandbaby maybe not.
Once I was visiting a friend and I was showing her some of the stuff I had been knitting and we were talking buttons. She went and found quite a few sets of old buttons that she gave me. They are not ancient, but my friend probably bought them when her kids were little and they are in their middle 30's. The buttons were marked 60 cents. You can still get some about that cheap at Wal-Mart, but I think these are a little nicer that WM.
