Fine Arts means buttons

When I pulled out Thermal in my Enlish Lit tutorial today, a girl gasped and commented that it was very thin yarn. I decided not to go into a discussion on sockweight, and that lace and cobweb do exist. She then asked if I was and English major, I said no, not wanting to get into my as of yet officially declared double major. She then asked if I was Fine Arts, which I affirmed. Then she said that she knew because of the buttons on my jacket. Buah?!

I guess that they are kind of artsy, but nothing really out of the ordinary. I got them at the Dude Show, from The Sweetie Pie Press. I had to get Knit Till You Die, and then they were 6 for $5, so I got the others. There was a pink version of the little girl with an arrow through her, but I gave that to Sam for Christmas. I just didn't know that buttons were such an obvious indication of being in Fine Arts. Interesting ... Maybe I should make one that says "I'm in Fine Arts so I wear buttons." Or would "I wear buttons so I'm in Fine Arts" be better?

Which begs the question: If all Fine Art majors wear buttons, does that make all button-wearers Fine Art Majors? Maybe that should be your button...

PS: Thermal is looking gorgeous!
