Yarn, Magazines, and Other Things…

– Yarn cakes and a new knit project in progress! 
– I feel so stylish when I see knitting featured in the Chanel Fall 2013 ad campaign. I wish I could float and knit at the same time…
– Knitting AND Benedict Cumberbatch in the same issue of Vogue? I could hardly believe my luck! I turned into a teenage girl when I saw this face staring up at me. Oh Benedict…perfect is the perfect word. Haha. 
– I couldn’t resist this mug when I spotted it on Etsy! 
Cookie Butter granola bars. Yes. It is as good as it sounds. 
– Bobbles, bobbles everywhere! 

– The new issue of Frankie is so wonderful! I love Emily Martin’s cover art.

Just a few snapshots from this week! I am definitely looking forward to the long, Labor Day weekend.

Are you getting ready for the Sheepish Bloom Drop next week? I created a Ravelry discussion board if you want to post your plans and ideas over there. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Happy Friday! What are you up to this weekend?

  1. Oh that mug, what a great find!
    I truly adore the color of the yarn you are using as well as those bobbles, definitely want to create a project featuring bobbles again.
    As far as the Sheepish Bloom Drop, I’m entirely sketching up a few ideas for it!
