About a month ago I mentioned that I was lucky enough to attend Vogue Knitting Live in Seattle/Bellevue when it was here, and that I wanted to share with you all of the lovely things I got at the show. Well, today I am not only going to show you what I got, but I also have for you a sponsor from my by far favorite purchase at the VKL marketplace. Here's a pic of what I snagged…
Notice, please, that there is no yarn in this photograph. I know, how did that happen?! Actually, I set a goal of not purchasing any yarn at the show, because my current stash is a tad bit big at the moment and literally taking over my small home. I'm just waiting for my eviction notice from my current roomies (hubby & DD) due to excessive hoarding of yarn! It was hard not to buy any yarn, because there were soooooooo many lovelies, but I gritted my teeth, deployed a lot of self control and moved along when the credit card wanted to creep out of my purse around pretty yarn skeins, and there were a lot of them! I did however, make some other knitting related purchases (that I OK'ed for myself prior to going to the show). In the picture above, starting at the top and moving clockwise around: Chicken Boots needle organizers in Squirrel, Kollage Yarns Square Needles, really cute hard plastic or resin of some sort buttons that I unfortunately do not have a link for because the lady who sells them does not sell online, super cool Meg Hannan earrings that are handmade out of stiffened fabric, and a Bar-Maids Lo Lo Bar in Cucumber Melon that smells amazing!
Can you guess which purchase was my fav? It was the organizers! I stumbled across the Chicken Boots (cutest name eva!) booth in my first couple hours at the show and knew immediately that at least two of the organizers were coming home with me.
I've been searching for new needle organizers for awhile now and when I saw Chicken Boots' Interchangeable Needle Case that holds two sets of interchangeables, I was in love. This baby is not only beautiful (the fabric has darling squirrels and flowers on it), it's functionality is beyond words, and I'm loving that the whole thing can zip up and keep my needles secure. This purchase did however lead to me purchase a second set of interchangeables when I got home! In addition to the nice big interchangeables case, I also bought the Accordion circs case that I am equally obsessed with. The case has these awesome plastic dividers on the inside that make organizing and pulling my needles out a snap. I couldn't be any happier with these two cases and I plan on purchasing a DPN case next to round out my collection!
Saremy, the owner and genius behind the Chicken Boots brand was kind enough to come and share her product with you and I also had the opportunity to chat with her about her process, sewing, and knitting. Check it out!
