They're all piled on top of each other, but I have Jamieson's Shetland Sprindrift and Koigu PPPM.
I didn't stitch much at all on Yellow Sub. Instead, I got distracted, again. I kept seeing other people on Instagram working on GigiR's Red Deer Sampler and finally decided to pull mine out and start stitching on her again. I haven't stitched much so far on her since I picked her up again, but she is so close to being done, comparatively.
Well, sort of. I'm using the called for linen and fibers.
Sunday, I set up some new shoe organizers. I bought them on sale, and immediately thought of a different purpose for them other than shoe organizing.
Yup, you guessed it. Stash organizing!
The cubbies are small, shoe sized, but they work well for my yarns anyway. I'm pleased with the arrangement.
Saturday, the Father type and I trekked out to Brooklyn. We were on a mission. Well, two missions. The first was to stop at Gauge and Tension, which is in the Brooklyn Craft Company. Gauge and Tension is a yarn shop owned by the talented designer Michele Wang. She designs amazing sweaters and other knitwear, for Brooklyn Tweed among others. I'm a huge fan of hers!
I neglected to take pictures of the shop or the craft areas, but guess who I got to meet? Michele Wang!
She was sooooo nice! It was amazing! I bought this pattern by Michele.
And two skeins of Jones & Vandermeer Clever Camel in the color shown.
I also got to try on the Bellows cardigan, which was amazing! Michele has all her models there -- I was drooling just looking at them all. But Bellows is the one I think I want to try to knit. I figure I'll start small and tackle the hat first. Work on my cabling skills. :D
After that fantastic experience, the Father type and I walked down to the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn to go here.
Mast Brothers Chocolate! Again, amazing! You walk in and all you smell is CHOCOLATE!!
These pics are from the factory -- that back area in the last pic is where they make the chocolate. They also have a store where you can try various chocolate beverages, along with chocolate spread on sourdough bread. Yum!
I had the non-alcoholic chocolate beer. Very interesting.
And we came home with these chocolate bars.
We had dinner at La Goulette. I had Joe's Plate, which was Chicken Shawarma over Cauliflower and Hummus with Pita.
And the Father type and I shared some Baklava for dessert.
It was a fun day with lots of walking and sight seeing along the way. I was glad to have my Father type there to show me where to go on the subways!
Mia was happy to have us home that evening.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a wonderful week.
