Shopping Rabbit Hole

Who knows what this incredibly dangerous sign is?

Tender Buttons, Chicago.
Mama got to shop alone and left many dollars lighter with an easy to hide wee bag:

From about 1 o'clock: glass cup shaped buttons (orange, lime & blue),
reproduction victorian black buttons, blue shell buttons (for a certain someone going though a very blue phase), glass flower buttons, linen buttons, and a bone moon. sigh.

I bought some sock yarn lately too.

Some Trekking, Opal, Interlacements, Mt. Colors (both Barefoot & Weavers Quarters),
Grignasco, Fleece Artist & Schaefer Anne - which is so tiiiiny that I ordered 4-0s & 5-0s to try & get something that resembles sock gauge.

Blissfully socking away...............
Yes, Janey you're due for socks, you can pick from the pile!

Lovely buttons! How long did you actually stay in the store and feast on those gorgeous things?

{Psst, Jane - go for the Schaefer Anne!}
