Shopping Trip

This has been a fun week on Tuesday my friend and I went to Freeport. We had the the best day. Our main mission of the day was to go to this shop I was like a kid in a candy store looking at all the beads and buttons. Next trip I will bring more money and buy more.

We also went to in Brunswick. It is a quaint little shop with comfy couches to sit and knit. The shop carried a lot of yummy yarns of all kind of textures.

I didn't find the buttons for the sweater I am working on, but I have a feeling the search will be fun.

It's been a month since I last wrote. I have been doing a lot of knitting, sweater #2 is almost complete and then I just have to make 3 vest and all my sisters kids are done for Christmas. Then I will make a sweater for my brother, he won't care if it is done for Christmas as long as he knows its coming. I have been test knitting a shawl which is coming out gorgeous, it will be fun to wear.

I am hoping to get a new camera soon so I can take pictures of all this knitting.

I have also been doing some beading. I made myself some stitch markers to learn the technique of turning the wire. It is not as easy as it looks.
