It has been more than a week since I have blogged... I am so sorry. My computer has not been behaving lately and to top it off, I have not been really working on much this week.
I have finally become inspired to work on a summer dress for a little girl plus planning my next two projects. One of the projects might be from this book ... Sexy Little Knits by Ashley Paige. I got an advance reading copy at work and since there is no way in hell I can fit into any of the projects in this book unless I don't eat for a year, I didn't think I would be using the book. One of the lovely girls at work wants a very cute rib and st st tank top from the book. It is made with Cascade Yarns - Fixation and it has come shaping to it. I would love to make it and it might lead some hired knit work.
So yesterday after spending the day with my friend Mark going to see Superman Returns, having dinner downtown on MacDougal Street, we headed to Brooklyn... Yeah I said Brooklyn.
I have no issues with going to Bklyn except that I really don't know it well and I need extremely detailed directions once there. We headed to Bergen Street to a bar called Vegas for a meet up with some of his friends. I was hesitant at first since I didn't know anyone but I trust Mark with my life and I know that he wouldn't take me anywhere weird. We finally ended up playing double pool games with some cool people, too many beers and having a good time.
So after three trains to get home ( I hate the mta during the weekends ) I came home to find my One Skein Package stuffed in my mailbox. It was the perfect end to a cool day.
Its like my Secret Buddy knows me.... HOW DID YOU KNOW I LOVE LOVE LOVE LORNA'S LACES YARN.
It is called Irving Park and it has orange, purple, fuschia and blues. Its shepard worsted 100% superwash wool, 225 yds. The colors are so pretty and some of my favorites.
Thank you so much ... Secret Buddy !!! ..... You rock.
Have a great week... smooches
