Grapevine & Roses

I started my day today with a very exciting trip to my local yarn shop! Since this is the week of my hometown's annual  Pumpkin Festival, Debbie, the owner, always has 20% off everything in the store.  I try hard to make sure I always have a little stash of cash set back for this event. So I thought you might like to see my show and tell :)

Pictured above is the new knitting needle set by DENISE. It's called Denise2Go. This is how they advertise it: "It's portable. It's pretty. It's petite. It packs a lot of knitting potential." Well I agree! I mean, all it took was the soft pink, green and lavender color scheme accompanied by those luscious roses and I was sold! The needle sizes are US 5-10, with one crochet hook. Needless to say I am tickled PINK!
This is what it looks like all closed up. It measures about 5" by 2 1/4".
Of course no trip to a yarn shop would be complete without some YARN.
So here's the fiber I chose today.
The color?
Oh So Pretty!
And what to make with it?
A Mobius Wrap for Little Ole Me! :)
Oh! And I even bought a pretty wooden shawl pin for a finishing touch.
I just LOVE a Yarn Shop Sale, don't you?! :)
