yarn ♥

Until we sort out the zillions of vacation photos and I can actually post some of them here, I thought I'd at least share some of the crafty shopping I did. Not much, since I wasn't really looking for anything special, and most of the shopping I did was x-mas related, but still I had to go back to this small yarn store I found in Mittenwald (Germany). This shop is conveniently located on the main pedestrian street, right in front of the Alpenrose, the guesthouse where we stayed in (and which we highly recommend, by the way). Last year I only got the yarn for this scarf, but this time I decided I needed some more.

So I got the same yarn again, but in green
(for another scarf, maybe ?)



Gorgeous Regia sock yarn and bamboo needles



And this cute, cute trim (I just love smurfs, don't you ?)




Tomorrow I'll try and post some photos of our x-mas decorations. Our new dining table is supposed to arrive tomorrow, just in time too, so we're finally getting our living room together (well, sort of .. we're still missing some lamps, and rugs, and cushions .. one step at a time, right ?)

Note: about the improvised labels I posted about yesterday, a little explanation ... these are stamped on fabric using Fabrico inkpads (which I got here). I experimented with a different cotton tape yesterday and the result is much better.

The yarn is beautiful! I think I want to learn to knit as an excuse to fondle and buy beautiful yarn, there is something so irresistible about it.

And smurf trim, wow .... ( btw did I ever show you the Heidi trim I got a couple pieces of?)

OMG! OMG! OMG!
That Smurf trim is awesome. I'm so darn envious of you. I collect Smurfs and would love to get my hands on some of that. Any way I can trade you for a few inches? ;)

I just bought the same exact sock yarn for a Christmas present for my friend! :)

The smurf trim is great.
