We're thinking about selling buttons made from the bits and pieces left over from making our Harmony Wood knitting needles. What do you think? Would you buy these? I'd love your input about how strongly you like or dislike them. (The quarter is for size reference.) Also, each button will have slightly different coloring because each one will be cut from a different spot in the Harmony Wood.

Button A (top - toggle) $1.99 for set of 2
Button B (middle) $2.99 for set of 2
Button C (bottom) $4.49 for set of 2

Please comment on all three shapes/sizes with a rank for each one:
1 = It's the ugliest thing I've ever seen.
3 = It's okay; it might look good on a sweater I'm planning.
5 = I'm pulling out my credit card right now, even though I don't know what sweater I'm going to use it on (button stashing in progress).

I love all of these but I would like to see some smaller and rounder. Wonderful idea!

I like all three buttons, would also like some smaller ones, and I LOVE Harmony sock needles. Thank you.

I second the suggestion for the connectors for the cables! That would give you an edge up on some of the other interchangeable needle sets!

Hope I am not doing this twice, I Love the buttons, especially B&C. Give them a 5. What I would really love, as long as we are talking products here, is a little connector for my Knit Pick cables, I would love to be able to connect them together on occasion!

Thanks so much for posting the answers.
Just for your information, the English 10 pence piece is about 1 inch in diameter or 2.5cm, so that was quite a good guess on my part. (I only chose that coin because someone had mentioned that the buttons were bigger than they would ideally wish.......).

mary janes are now referred to as a style. They did use to be black. Simple dress shoes (or in my case-slippers) with a strap across the front.

Forgot to add, the Harmony wood would make for great beads, too.

5 for A, B and C. I would definitely want these buttons, plus smaller ones, and round ones, too. And I third the vote for shawl pins!

Mandy, Mary Janes, when I was of an age to wear them---the definition may since have expanded---were black patent leather flat shoes with a strap over the top of the foot, generally dress shoes for little girls. It's possible they're not always black, but mine always were.
