Oh, I almost forgot. While I’ve already detailed my yarny acquisitions from the Maine trip, I haven’t yet shown you my nifty new buttons. I know they’re not strictly knitting related, but they will almost certainly get used in some sort of knitterly pursuit, so I’m pretending they’re fair game. Aren’t they pretty?
Now alas, I don’t have a website where you can buy them directly. I got them at KnitWit yarn shop in Portland. They’re pewter, they’re handmade by some sort of super genius in the area, and they were all of $2.00 each. This is a shockingly low price. I, of course, got all of the very very very best ones, but I did manage to leave a few behind. If you find yourself as taken with them as I was, you might be able to contact the store and arrange to get some of your own.
