Yesterday I went off to the Button Emporium in Portland with Sarah, Nicole & Julia (who are both blogless, sorry!).
Nicole set up a special appointment for us to be able to go on a Monday, since they are normally closed that day. This is my button haul. Some of it will be used for some secret projects I am working on currently and some will be used for some projects in the future. I think that it is just as important to have a button stash as it is to have a yarn stash.
After spending around 2 hours in the button emporium we headed off to The Yarn Garden. It is an alright yarn shop, but after our sensory overload from all of those buttons none of us could totally appreciate it. I think each one of us ended up getting our own koigu, but then who can resist that? This is the color I chose and will be added to my ever growing sock yarn stash.
