I wish I could.....

.........go more often to NYC. I feel privileged to live in a more rural area with all the animals you can imagine walking through my back yard or crossing the street in front of my car like these wild turkeys.

But sometimes it's just nice to get inspired by a city atmosphere. On my last trip to NYC I was able to take a brief look at some shops in the Garment District. I think I never saw so many different buttons, trims, zippers..... in one place.

IT was impossible to see everything in the short time I had there. Good excuse to go back soon!!

New in my Esty shop:

New Yarn Colors

I just added some fun new colors to my Etsy shop

Come and check them out!

What else is new?

Patches Child is released and available.



This fun cardigan is worked in strips which are joined as you go. Using a self-patterning yarn will create the unique patchwork look of the finished garment; if you decide to use a different color for each strip you will have a great stash buster project.To make this pattern suitable for boy and girl you have a choice between different necklines (crew-neck or V-neck) as well as a choice of edging (ruffle, garter st, ribbing). Instructions for placing the buttonholes on either side are also given.
