Wendyknits is going on a road trip!
(Well, okay, I’m flying to Toronto, but that’s a minor point.)
Three weeks from Wednesday, I’m going to Toronto to meet up with Kathy, Kate, Amy and Jillian for our own little mini knit retreat. Before we head off into the wilds of Ontario, we’re going to be at a Toronto Bitch and Stitch the evening of Wednesday, June 25th. I hope anyone/everyone who is in the area will come! Details of location are on Kathy’s blog.

I’m gonna need buttons for this sucker. I looked at what I’ve got, and none are quite right. Anyone have any good online button sources for Celtic/Scottish-look buttons?
It looks like Beadwork gets the popular vote!
