Amidst my travels yesterday, I just happened to drive by Bohemian Yarn & Imports. I’d heard about it, but hadn’t ever been there. It’s a tiny store located in an old house, on 11th East just west of the Brickyard. I thought I’d stop in check it out. For those who are interested, they have some nice 100% merino baby yarn from Norway, a large selection of Sandra knitting magazines from Austria, a few books, some 100% cotton yarns, and a lot of acrylic and acrylic blend yarns. They also had a lot of knitted and crocheted items for sale – I didn’t look closely, but they looked like mostly baby items. The Sandra magazines looked interesting, but I didn’t have time to take more than a quick glance. The owners were very nice.
As for my Central Park Hoodie button quest, I saw some nice leather toggle-type buttons at Fashion Affair, but besides being a little pricey, they were also a bit large. Jo-Ann’s had some dark brown wood ones that will probably work, but only had 4 in stock. Hmmmm.
