I was able to get to two yarn shops while I was in the Big Apple. I went to School Products and I found some awesome cashmere on sale. I didn't know you could buy yarn by weight. OK, sounds kinda dumb considering when we buy a ball or skein it details the weight and yardage on the label. But here the yarn had been wound into a variety of sizes . So I felt like I was at a fruit stand, I touched, squeezed, felt for density it was kinda cool. Then my yarn was weighed and I paid by the ounce. They even had free patterns with purchase. It was all so soft & yummy and ok I admit it I have become a fiber addict, smile! My choice's of yarn stores were limited, since I am being pushed all through town in my wheelchair by my great kids, I heart them! But, considering all this I scored. I also went to Purl in Soho, Joelle Hoverson author of Last Minute Knitted Gifts is the owner I did not know that needless to say I did imbarrass myself, smile! I bought some great patterns, alpaca yarns, new wool by Rowan, lovely dpns, and two new books. I got a picture inside purl and all I can say is I want a wall of yarn like that when I grow up.
I am silly and I love to laugh, I love cooking and I am self taught so I am always trying to improve and learn as much as I can. I believe chocolate or lemon bars are a cure all, I love to eat, I studied fashion, marketing and design, I love to go to thrift stores and find vintage cashmere sweaters to bring back to life to wear, I love my jeans and flip flops. I enjoy dressing up too... I love perfume. Blue is my favorite color and I adore my family.
Such a green way to go. This great so when you toss a fruit into your handbag or backback it protects it from getting bruised or poked by a pen or a knitting needle. It is a better way to go than a plastic baggie. I made mine from cotton so I can toss it in the wash. I have made so many they have been a hit with friends and family and such a pretty way to carry a healthy snack. Find the pattern at gonnapurl.blogspot.com
