Mary Maxim - Part 2

Part of the fun of buying things is showing them off. So will try to get a few pictures for you --

As a knitter I like my sheep and I have resisted this bag for several years but this year it came home with me. It is from the John Hall shop in Paris - one of the many slightly quirky treasures you can find in the store.
Will be great to carry knitting projects in or use as a shopping bag when heading to a yarn store. (Not that I will be doing that anytime soon.)

Do like my knit socks and way behind in making some for me and for anyone else who might like a pair. Keep my eyes open for yarn I like and this is one:

One purchase that is. Should get 3 pairs of socks from it. You might get the idea that I don't go for the plain, one colour type and you would be right although I do have one or two plain. One is a soft lemon yellow very tone on tone so several shades of the colour in the yarn. Have a pair of socks almost finished and then I get to start the yellow ones.

The other thing that I search out at Mary Maxims (or anywhere for that matter) is books. This time I lucked out is the pattern book mentioned in the previous post was available. Also there were three issues of a magazine I like but rarely buy. This time they were half price and each had two or three patterns or parts of patterns that I like.

My family all think I have way too much books and yarn and patterns and stuff. Now that I have taken a few pictures of the things that are new this summer, I am beginning to agree with them. Maybe there is hope for me yet!

they don't ALL have to glow in the dark ...but glow in the dark socks would be very cool, don't you think?

I think so!
