We are going for gothic, steampunk, and homespun... but not all at the same time.
(I wonder how those darning cottons got in the picture?)
When I got home I looked in my button jars, and found 40 there as well.
My lacy shawl is coming along. I find I have memorized the pattern! That makes it much easier to keep track of. This morning I knit for 2 hours, and got 12 rows done, so my speed is improving as well.
