Yesterday my husband and I decided to take a trip over to East Mesa, which is about an hour drive for us, and go to a couple of antique shops we’ve never been to before. We had loads of fun and saw many things we really would have love to purchase and bring home, but we just don’t have the room for any more stuff.
I did pick up a few vintage crochet pieces, but I must say the highlight of my day was two hanging hat displays for the wall. I’ve seen these on eBay many times, but was happy to seem them in person and needless to say they came home with us.
I ended up hanging them over my desk and got tickled when my husband told me they looked like wall sconces. I guess in a way, they do! I think they really look fun and it’s a great way for me to show off my hand knits. I may have to move the dress form to the left of the desk as it almost makes it a bit cluttered looking, but I’ll decide on that later.
I finished spinning the last of my BFL this afternoon. I haven’t quite decided if I want to leave my two bobbins as singles or if I want to ply them. The goal for this particular fiber was for a spin to shawl KAL and I really think singles would be ok but I will decide tomorrow what will become of my spun fiber.
