It was kind of exciting when I pulled buttons a couple of weeks ago, two came out hooked together. The Detroit Red Wings vs. Winnipeg Jets. In the head to head, Detroit won the battle to be knit first. I have been waiting to do Winnipeg. I must say that their logo is probably my most favorite! I was head over heals in love with the movie Top Gun and I truly believed that I could be a fighter pilot. I was wrong, but I still have this sort of love affair with these jets! I was happy that Winnipeg held to tradition and stuck with their "old" name and made it new again.
I chose to use the silver as the main accent color because of the jet color. I know every time I do a jersey in navy I fall in love with it because the color is just so attractive and classy. The accent colors just seem to pop with it in a way that the gold and white didn't on my first black jersey.
I had to purchase a whole new batch of buttons because my original ones included Atlanta Thrashers instead of the Jets. It was a wise purchase because the buttons are larger and much more bold than the original mini batch. I might have to see if I can purchase another batch of buttons for another project.
8/30 - almost a third of the way to the goal! It is going so smoothly and quickly!
