Or so my bumpersticker says.
One of the things I have found since arriving in D.C. are the abundance of specialty stores. Especially for hobbies and crafts. I have enjoyed checking out some of the yarn stores in the city. My favorite is in Alexandria (technically not D.C. but accessible by metro). The Fibre Space is a airy, funky space full of fibers and color. I love it there. I got to introduce it to a school friend whom I taught to knit. During spring break we went up and found some deliciously funky pink wool, fair trade from Uruguay. I can’t wait to see how it turns out.
I have been doing a lot of knitting. Purses mainly, and other accessories. I’ve had a lot of fun. Knitting seems to be the thing that I can actually accomplish. I can get that done.
So what have I made in the last I don’t know how long? Like it or not I am going to show you. They include a sweater for my good friend Kelly, a plush Tardis for my good friend Laura, purses for my mother, my cousin, my sister and my sister-in-law to be, and even one for myself. Currently I am working on socks. Socks. Such fun. We will see what comes next.
