So, I got a lot of great stuff on our yarn crawl this past weekend- now, it’s not as much as you might expect because we are going to RHINEBECK in a few WEEKS (!).
I got these adorable buttons at Sit n’ Knit- our first stop. I’m thinking about doing a little baby squirrel hoody with the acorn buttons. Sort of like a throwback to Super Mario Bros 3– when Mario wore the squirrel outfit, not just had the tail.
The penguin buttons will probably be on a brooch or a hat. I couldn’t leave without them, especially not after Jessie kept telling me all the fantastic things I could do with them! So they live with me now, waiting for their embroidered igloo homes.
At Cranberry Fiber Arts I got some Misti Alpaca for Ben’s birthday presents.
He requested a scarf and a hat that were “professional” for his birthday. Of course, his birthday is October 20, so I have to get moving on these! I think there might be more on this later…
I also got buttons for his sweater there! I have pulled his sweater out of hibernation, but I haven’t actually begun working on it again. It was supposed to be done before his birthday, but it’s looking bleak. Maybe if he hadn’t requested knitted things for his birthday I would be able to do both. Ah well.
Very manly, aren’t they? I really like them- I bought every one that she had. Like – 12. I wasn’t sure how many I would need, and Ben’s tall!
I also bought these adorable elephants there for my Baby Suprise Jacket! With all the different colors, I thought that having a silver button would be the best route, instead of introducing another color. I totally love the elephants. SO ADORABLE!
I also bought some kidsilk haze to create a tube like stole for my MIL for Christmas. I started knitting, and it’s great mindless knitting!
The brown is from last year, but the teal and yellow are new. They are very pretty together!
A very good day with yarn! I’m very excited to start knitting!!
