As I said in last post, I am participating in "ABC" week with Charlotte. The point is to post each week with a letter of the alphabet going in alphabetical order. So to begin with.... "A" is for Accessories! Off we go!
I had so much fun shopping at MDS&W and although I did cave and buy some yarn, I bought lots of things to go with all of my fiber habits. First up, since witchyknits4ewe, LLC is now official, licensed and registered, I bought an adorable business card holder. How cute is he?!
Here is one more shot of him with my cards and sitting next to my hysterical "old lady in a beach chair knitting" that my friend brought back from Florida for me:
Next up is the yarn - notice the color theme, yes, they are almost identical. They kind of look black in the pics, but they are a deep wine color with some black and the sock weight one has a bit of purple/blue to it. They are going to be used to make a lacey shrug and a shawlette:
I also bought Wendy Johnson's travel patterns of Socks Toe Up:
And who could resist these socks?! My friend Trudy got the same pair!
Aren't they fun! I also bought a beautiful wooden shawl pin, made by who else? Plymouth, of course!! (That is a private joke for those who know me)
In order to support my spinning habit, I wanted a real Knitty Knoddy as opposed to the "fake" PVC one I've been using. I have to put this one together, but it's by Ashford, same as my wheel.
Finally, I bought an Orifice Hook for my wheel. I had one but it was a plain old hook - this one is pretty!! Jewels and pretty!!
Here is a close up of the jewels:
So, there we are! A beautiful day full of lovely company and lovely splurges!! A great time was had by all! Woo! Hoo!
