regal treasure box!

From a guy named Lord… he was cleaning out some of his mom’s stuff and thought I’d be interested in a box of knitting/needlepoint type stuff. Well, jah! The box hand-off happened this afternoon…

In the end, though, there is little I want out of the box… But if somebody else would like anything here, let me know! I’ll ship to you (at your cost). I told Mr. Lord there that I would find somebody for these things… and if not, there’s always the free table at SPA in February…

Whooo…. check out these old patterns!

Some partially done project, looks like maybe a Turkish design… I think the yarn is a wool/acrylic blend.

White-ish baby yarn…

The Princess has subtle aqua flecks of color in it. Mostly acrylic, wool to the right.

Crocheted and tatted things, and leftover crochet cotton…

There’s a plastic grocery bag full of partial balls (some nearly full) of various acrylic yarns, and a smaller amount of what looks like wool (including pink mohair).

I may keep this, to overdye, when I finally get that project going…

Made by smart women everywhere, with Dawn Nylons, Dacron and Wools…

Columbus Day on Maine Ave… Three hold ups between here and Gardiner… we sat nearly 20 minutes at this one… Can you see the bucket loading up the dump truck? I think three trucks came out of there before traffic started moving…

carnaby update

Went with the big silver buttons… They’re all sewn on. I plan to wear this Thursday, and will try to get a “full fashion criminal” photo.

    Way to score! I love those old patterns. Actually, I really like the ones from the early ’70s that my grandmother always had. Everybody had cocktails back in those days, and there was a lot of apres ski going on.:-)
