who blogs about knitting anymore?


thrifted fabric

Not me. Nope.

I found this fabric at an amazing thrift store in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on North 6th Street. It's about 1.5 yards of fabric. I'm considering making it into a series of bags for the craft fair I have coming up in Decemeber.

I've been knitting and re-knitting the same sample for the store for the last week. I am very bored with it. I'm also completely bored with the Mystery Sweater. Yawn.

(Oh and at this same thrift store, Mater P found a mint condition Burberry trench coat for $75. I mean, I'm still reeling at the luck he had. It's never been worn - there are still replacement buttons in the pocket - and it had a button-in wool lining. For $75! We looked it up online and a new one costs about $1,500. You do the math. Sheesh. What luck!)

The fabric is great - I can definitely see it made into bags.
