The rest of the Frolic haul...

After securing my cardigan (okay, two cardigans), and sock yarn, everything else was gravy.
The Purple Purl had Noro and Alpaca on sale, and I've been looking for a combination of this for a men's striped scarf, so I would have been crazy to pass it up.
Especially since we got there early, picked our colours, and later on, that stuff at that price was GONE! We timed it well.

I also picked up another box of mohair locks at Wellington Fibres for gnome beards.
This time, a coppery, brown colour to go with the natural and grey locks I already have.
Then, the last thing I bought (and this was after Susan left, so she doesn't even know...) was this wire knitting kit.

I kept going back, and then said I didn't need it, but at the end, I succumbed, and bought the last copper wire kit. I may or may not use the large bead that came with it - it's not like I don't have a selection of beads to choose from at home...

I looked at the wire knitting kits too. I considered the silver watch kit but in the end I came home without it. I am such a wuss!

Are you sure she doesn't know about it now?

A lovely haul. You showed a great deal of restraint.

Quite a haul for sure. You really did make up for me not shopping.
