I have been lucky enough to make some amazing friends. One in particular who knows me better than I know myself sometimes. @rootedinseoul sent me this beautiful beautiful pen as a gift. The note in the box said "Just try it you will like it"
I love it. Thank you Kim

Because the Universe doesn't quit Street Fair season is in full effect here in NYC. I was lucky enough to run into one today. One of the really nice things about this fair was the notable presence of more handmaking artisans. Here are a few ranging from jewelry to screen-prints and photographers with t-shirts. @retronymetro @adelanteshoeco @bronxconnartist @littlevillagecrafts @_papercraneheart @fegogioielli And though he didn't have cards yet @t_collection007 #StreetFairNYC #buyhandmade #shopsmallbusiness #ohmygoodnessthefood #streetsofnyc #weekendsinnyc

Here are a few more that caught my eye. The top two are jewelry artisans. @elkevandykedesign @jonblackstudio The bottom two are fiber artists.@ionaloyolatextiles and someone whom I am happy to see still crafting and bringing wares to the Fair #lfabrika.
This June the Fair is only one weekend, this weekend. There are 150 handmaking artisans at the Damrosch Plaza of Lincoln Center. Go find some that catch your eye and please share, I love to go ooh and aah. #supportyourlocalartisans #buyhandmade #handmadejewelry #fiberartists #amazingartisans #craftfairny #lincolncenter

Lately my focus has not been on the whole picture but on the beautiful pieces that are built along the way. Like this nearly finished back to my sweater! The pattern is the mohair hoodie by Marilyn Saitz Cohen. Isn't that Tangerine just wonderful!?! #knittingslowly #knittingsweaters#prettyyarn #mohairhoodie

Those sparkles I posted a few weeks ago turned into these lovelies. Hand twisted beading needles. Made with 34 gauge gold wire and a crochet hook. I love them so much. I love making them. The beads slide over the collapsible eye and right onto the string. Very neat. #beading #needles #beadingneedles #handtwistedwire #34gaugewire #newprojects #making #makingnewthings

Couldn't help myself. Went out and bought more gray yarn. Caron One Pound in Aran weight works up plush and warm every time. I'm in love. I"m sure I'll try other colors soon.
In the bottom corner is hat number 13. Crochet this time and almost done. #Whatareyouupto? #moregrayyarn #caronyarn #carononepound #crochet #crochethat #hatnumber13 #52hats2018 #challengingmyself #whatsyourchallenge

Hat number 12 is in the works. I would show number 11, but it got snatched up pretty much right after it was done. I'm glad it was liked. For convenience sake I went back to the Easy Beginner Hat pattern using a Loops and Threads yarn by Michael's called Impeccable. You might recognize it as the pop of color in previous gray projects, this time I wanted to see what this yarn could do on its own. #52hats #hatnumber12 #handknit #hat #handknithats #loopandthreadsimpeccableyarn #challengingmyself
