Spontaneously… Traveling to New York!! Yup, booked a ticket to leave next weekend for a 3-4 day jaunt in New York…well New Jersey mainly with a splash of New York. Having only extended family to visit, that leaves me only one full day of shopping on Monday. Any suggestions for fabric, knitting, and thrift store shopping for good deals in New York? Please note my newest hobby is being on the hunt for great deals or highly unique items so kona cotton or $25.00 a yard places aren’t really my thing 🙂
Shopping…at GW Consignment. Have you ever been? It is a great place where buried treasure is just waiting to be found. Oh yeah, some people know it as Goodwill 😀 My mom turned me on to that renaming when we went GW shopping. She is not a shopper but she shopped me under the table there…LOL! 3 stores later I was pooped and she slept on the way home LOL!
Obsessing over… CathrineHolm cookware. Damn that design*sponge and decor8!! I had to have some and so ebay came to my aid with a new CathrineHolm pot and also led me to a yellow Dansk Kobenstyle pot. Both can be put in the oven which I love.
Collecting… hobbies but specializing in those associated with old ladies…LOL! I now sew, knit, cook, thrift, and hope to be weaving come the 18th. If any of you know any OL hobbies I am missing please do tell so I can get started on them 🙂
Knitting… The Heather Hoodie Vest from the latest Knitscene in Navy Berrocco Comfort Chunky. I started this knit because my minisweater sleeves are pissing me off. I keep getting too many stitches and this is the second time I have knit them. I had to put it away for later.
Sewing… nothing right now. I do plan on making Burda 10-2009-135 this weekend though. This unfortunately was the ONLY pattern I really liked in this issue and I sold off my August and September issue because they had NOTHING I liked. I am bummed because this time is normally my favorite Burda season. Hope our style compatibility has not gone sour.
Alright, hope to have some crafting for you soon!
Update: Ooops forgot that I actually DO have crafting to share!! I should post it as soon as me, my camera, and the daylight coincide again.
