One of my customers sells jewelry, and she came by yesterday with a few necklaces to show us. I just had to snap this one up! I LOOOOVEEE it! The two pieces can be worn like this, or you can wear either long or shot by itself. It's heavy, real jet, and I can see myself wearing this a lot. And I never even wear jewelry! I just love it that much. (BTW, Leslie can get more of this necklace if someone wants one, email me or drop a comment and I'll get you in touch with her)
In other shopping news, I also got some new knitting books. I got Knitting Over the Edge, Knitting Vintage Socks, and Favorite Mittens. I'm in the process of writing reviews for them, which you can see at Chiagu. I already wrote the Knitting Over the Edge review, the others will go up today or tomorrow.
If you have a book you think I should check out, let me know! I spent quite a while at the bookstore today going through the HUGE knitting section, there are so many books out right now it's a bit overwhelming! I flipped through Handknit Holidays, Oddball Knitting, and Alterknits but decided not to get them. I usually only buy technique books, stitch pattern books, and the rare focused pattern book (ie socks). Since I barely have enough time to knit up my own designs, it just doesn't make sense to keep buying other people's patterns! =)
Speaking of which, I still haven't gotten a copy of VK, the store's order never arrived and then Barnes & Noble didn't have it. Hopefully we'll get it next week . . .
