the Knitter's Frolic
These buttons followed me home from the Knitter's Frolic this morning. Jessie picks up fallen branches at her woodlot in Essex County and creates these fabulous buttons and other treasures. As well as these squarish buttons, I also picked up a handful of round twig buttons. I just love them! I wonder if the branches around here would make nearly as interesting buttons as these?!
I guess you won't be surprised to hear that some yarn followed me home too. From the Knit Café I picked up four different mini-skeins of Koigu PPPM. They're running a contest looking for grand ideas of what to do with mini skeins. I'll have to put on my thinking cap to see what I can come up with! And from Shelridge Farm I picked up 5 skeins of superwash wool in navy blue; I've signed up for a KAL of this (W)rapped pullover starting May 1st, so I'm ready to go on that.
Other than those few things, I kept my wallet in my bag. There was certainly lots of temptation but I didn't want to have to confess to overdoing when I post my update for the Surmount the Stash challenge. Looks like the yarn diet is working pretty well!
