Okay, I don't mean to keep flogging Windsor Button on my blog, but every time I stop by the store its yarn selection expands and improves. Why do I find this so amazing? Well, if you knew the Windsor Button of a few years ago, you would know that the yarn selection used to be rather limited.
During yesterday's visit I noticed even more Rowan, loads of Malabrigo, a large selection of Cascade, and long rack of Steadfast Fibers. All are new since the last time that I visted (about a month ago) and all are within walking distance of my office. I can honestly say that I am almost never very far from nice yarn. It's a good feeling :-).
In spite of all these new designer yarns, Windsor Button continues to stock the workhorse stuff, like Lion Brand and Red Heart. The store caters to all kinds of knitters, and I like that.
Alas, I didn't go to buy yarn. I went to buy buttons for Venus. Here's what I bought:
(Not too shabby for a first go, eh, Kathy?)
The solid green is for the inside button-loop closure; the pretty marbly one is for the outside. It took me a long time to find just the right button, and in fact I didn't find this one. The woman behind the button counter spotted it and brought it to my attention.
Wanna see a close-up?
