A Year of Projects: Week 48

I have to really thank ReneeAnne at Confessions of a Yarn Addict, because I'd never know what week I was on without her!  I skipped a week again! I don't remember why...maybe because I really had nothing new to report....This week I have finished another hat...I posted about it on Friday.  Today, I think I'm going to work on those tiny mittens for my friend's daughter...also bought another one of these...I have the puppy, the giraffe, the bear and now the lamb!

I went into NYC on district provides a bus every year..we just have to donate an unwrapped toy....for the second year I took my yarny BFF with me...she wanted to go to Brooklyn General Store, as she follows them on Instagram.  I had been there a couple years ago....I didn't buy anything there (but it was where I bought my first Zauberball on the previous visit).  It's a great store with some awesome yarn and the atmosphere is fun, very rustic...but I just kept looking and then putting the yarn back, as I had something like it at home!  She bought a book.  But we did visit Woolyn, also in Brooklyn and I did purchase several things there, as they carried lots of local yarn and they had a kit I was looking to buy.....I'll post them on Saturday...I didn't take any pictures!  But it was a great store!  They've only been open for three months.

I also visited my local yarn shop for Small Business Saturday...and did some shopping!

Renee Anne said...

I have it written down in my planner in case I forget a week. I don't know that it's happened in five years but I could be wrong about that.

Becki said...

Oh my, I did not need to know something as cute as those hat toppers existed. Now my wanter is going. I can't wait to see the hats you make with those. I checked out the link and those make really adorable hats!

Breathing Life said...

Those toppers are soooo cute.

I had to laugh at the first project in your completed list - Dork socks. lol

Paula said...

Those Top This critters are so cute! I don't have anyone to make them for, though. Cat would not put up with I hat I don't think.

Cyra said...

Lots of lovely yarn shopping therapy, it is so so good for you. Love those animal toppers.
