Koigu kpm from Purl. I fell in love with this yarn while knitting my entrelac scarf on the plane, and when the salesgirl at Purl suggested it for the Vogue dress, I had a 'duh' moment. It just seems so right that I couldn't believe I didn't think of it! I'll have to find another use for my loverly orange alpaca silk. Shouldn't be too hard.
I also picked up some new clothes! I visited Built by Wendy in Brooklyn and got this dress.
I managed to squeeze in some subway knitting on the longish ride from the Lower East Side to Columbia. Perhaps the first of many similar rides.
My favorite part of the trip, besides seeing my sister and her girlfriend, was Coney Island. What a bizarre and surreal spot. I heard that it will be torn down soon, so my wonderful hosts drove us over there to check it out.
Yes, it really says "shoot the freak." I don't think this would go over too well in SF.
There are no words to fully express the magnificence of these kittyfeet.
