Knitty is up!

The new knitty is up - strange that I never got my usual email update. But I saw this and I thought it was funny. Sometimes the naming muse is just in the air!

Not too much knitting progress to report. I'm really kicking butt on the secret Magknits project, but can't show off quite yet! I'm really enjoying working on this project and I hope others will too!

Went down to Soho this weekend for a shopping excursion and finally got to visit purl patchwork. What an inspiring store! The fabrics and colors are absolutely beautiful and so inspiring. After leaving the store, DB and I couldn't help but feel happy! I did make one purchase for my sewiknit-along bag project. I decided on Amy Butler's Weekender Bag pattern. It will come in handy for all the weekend train trips to Philly. My black jansport backpack (from high school - graduated in 98') will be sad on being retired, but the new bag will be so much more fun (and updated)! I'm still deciding on what fabrics to use and I'll probably end up ordering something online. That said, I don't think my bag will be finished for the deadline - april 30th. I don't want to rush this project like the skirt and I have so much going on this month already!

I love the bag, Melissa. I thought of you and your Granny Smith sweater when I saw knitty! You're right, it's funny when there's something in the air.

I thought of you too when I saw the Knitty pattern. I like your Granny Smith MUCH better!

I saw that last night and thought it was you for a moment. Then I realized my mistake.

And your sweater is much cuter!

i passed by purl patchwork this weekend but resisted going in since i can't deal with a new hobby now!

HAHAHAH! I totally thought of you as soon as I saw the ungranny pattern. I truly love yours. I broke down and went to purl patchwork Friday after work. Very VERY hard to not buy anything.

That Weekender bag is such a beauty! I was talking to a friend of mine and she mentioned that new Purl Patchwork store... it sounds amazingly beautiful. I have to get up to NYC again: 1) to meet you! and 2) to get to Purl!

Your Granny Smith is much better!

Best wishes,
