Goodness me it's been over a week since my last post! Work has been kicking my butt lately, which means no time for knitting or sewing or anything but working and sleeping, and certainly no time for blogging.
However, I'm going to sneak in and show you some of the fun goodies I picked up last weekend during a day with Mom in New Jersey.
First stop was Mom's new favorite knitting shop in Montclair, Stix'n Stitches. Chef recommends! I wish I had some pictures. This place is great - tons of beautiful yarn, lots of books and a really friendly atmosphere with plenty of space to sit and knit. I picked up some Louet linen:
Next stop was the Rag Shop. I'm sure this is of little excitment to people who live just about anywhere else in the country, but in NYC, where we have access to everything, it can be a major ordeal to get the most basic sewing supplies. Generally, it necessitates a trip to the garment district, which is great, but not super convenient, especially when many stores are geared for the trade and only open 8-5 on weekdays. So, I stocked up on zippers and bobbins and other fun things. Joy!
Now if only I had time to crack open the packages and make something!
