I finally finished all my Christmas shopping, so I’m going to reward myself with a long meandering blog post. If you (or someone you know, wink, wink) is still looking for a gift for the knitting inclined, you should check out my “Gift Guide for the Knitter In Your Life”.
The only thing I could add to that list are stitch markers as a stocking stuffer. My darling husband recently confessed to irreverently vacuuming up any stitch markers he sees while cleaning. I’m happy he cleans, but his disdain for stitch markers raises some questions. This explains why I go through a couple packs of stitch markers every year. Sheesh!
I’m always curious about new knitting products. What would you add to my list?
While Christmas shopping on Smith Street in Brooklyn over the weekend, the window display of La Casita Yarn Shop caught my eye. Check this out: a tiny knitted version of Smith Street.
Here’s a photo of the street from Google Maps. Their attention to detail is incredible!
The only thing that’s missing is Santa’s sleigh on one of those rooftops
La Casita always has interesting window displays, so I usually walk on their side of the street to see what’s new. I’m lucky to have such a gem of a yarn shop so close to home! The ladies who work there are super friendly, AND they serve wine and cookies.
Yarn + Wine = Awesome (the unofficial motto of my knitting club)
