Yes!! lol-- when you posted yours, I wanted to spill the beans then. But mine was still stuck in Italy and I just wanted to make sure it was going to make it to me before I celebrated!

Sbelle, you are my hero! What a collection! I have a nero ayers stretch knot, and a memory knot in fire. Love them but I dream of a croc knot! Maybe some day....

A month or so went by and I decided to get the steel croc knot that apey and I had looked at in April. The US stock was very limited at the time, but I was assured that there was one left in the US and it could be mine! I ordered and paid for it, but a whole lot of mess happened. The store that had the knot seemed to be very attached to it and was doing everything in its power to keep that knot from leaving their store and coming to me. I finally gave up, was very disappointed, but resigned myself to a life without a steel croc knot.

If you thought apey was no longer part of my story, then you are wrong!! Sometime during the steel knot saga, apey sent me this picture.

I fell in love with the plum knot and figured if my life was really destined to be "steel croc knot-less", I should get the plum. I knew the US had only ordered the stretch plum croc knot and found out apey's picture was from London. I contacted the store but at that time they were sold out. On a whim, I decided to contact the Florence BV store, as I had purchased a cabat there a few years ago. I struck croc! The Florence store found one for me!

By then, I was dong the happy dance. I paid for the plum and I was content. Oh, but my story isn't over yet! The day after I paid for the plum knot, I got a call from a US BV manager asking if I still wanted the steel knot.

Those of you who know me, know how this story ends .....

And it goes without saying Don't Tell Ricky!

this is my first time seeing these (that's the trouble with work; it takes time away from tpf) and oh my! amazing! well worth the "whole lot of mess".

sbelle - they are absolutely TDF and unique in their own way!
We talk about the slippery BV slope but it is something else to be on the slippery BV Knot slope.

PS: Give my regards to Mr. Financial Planner Man

OMG! I leave the country and you go shopping, lol! Absolutely fabulous colors! Apey has the best advice!. The Steel is an awesome neutral and the Plum is the perfect pop of color.
Promise not to tell Ricky and if Mr. Financial Planner guy gives you a hard time, I'll just stick a pin in him!

OMG sbelle, your knots are divine and your story about the quest is so much fun. I just love your color selection. I tried a nero stretch croc yesterday at the BH boutique. Loved the size. My knot lust is growing thanks to you, india, and jburgh.
