(after all a shop hop is all about SEX isn't it?)
I tried to be very good whilst on the shop hop. We are saving for various things:
a) me to go to RHINEBECK!!!
b) a car
c) a trip home :-)
All of those things add up - thank heavens the car should be cheap and if I have an ounce of control, Rhinebeck should be cheaper than the car....
Anyway, here's the goodies I picked up:
From Creative Hands, some Rowan and some Noro:
(on special, of course! Except the Kureyon which came with a free pattern.)
From Purlescence, a cute little gruesome amigurumi book and a totally to die for Grafton batt. I love my rainbow colours even though I am not gay. (and if you are gay, well that is not my concern - you may continue as you see fit.)
From the Yarn Place - two skeins of Koigu Kirsti and one of a wool/cashmere to dye up, both on special.
From the Knitting Room, the one skein hat pattern and yarn, and a number of old patterns in mostly basic shapes - I like basic shape ones cos then I can plant my ideas on them.
Half a pound of blue cotton roving to spin up, from Monarch Knits.
(Not at all to do with the shop hop) I saw this on my friend Jessie's site Piece of Vermont and had to have it. Note the name:
Next I will announce the winner of the little comp and also show off an FO or maybe even two.
