I left my awesome apartment yesterday… and for the purposes of this post, I came home with two things: The first of which is this fabulous purse (they’re just called “bags” here)-

I paid 5 dollars for it. It’s awesome. It even has a separator in the middle – so I can keep my sock in progress (pattern coming this weekend!!) separate from my junk-du-jour! Love this bag. Plus, it’s my favorite color!

I also came home with something else… something much different from my 5 dollar bargain…

Yea… that scarf… that dress… I picked those out from the studio of Twinkle. You know Twinkle right?  Twinkle of big city knits? Um ya… proof I was there, in case you don’t believe me.  And proof it really is from her collection, again, incase you don’t believe me.

So why do I have this?  Basically, Twinkle is doing this press thing at Anthropologie where she’s going to be teaching all sorts of magazine editors to knit scarves and throws.  I’m going to be there, in this dress (I have to give it back), walking around the room helping give people one on one help.  So I guess this means that I’ve now had some sort of “fashion” experience in NY.  How cool is this?  (At least as cool as being the second row to see Fantasia sing in The Color Purple on Broadway!)

    What an amazing opportunity! You move to NYC for a few months and suddenly your hob-knobbing with all the big wigs. Way to go! This sounds like such a great opportunity.

    Ooh, lucky you! That dress looks rather snazzy. That purse is a great find, too! It’s not easy finding a bag to tote your knitting around in.

    PS: I’m new to reading your blog :>

    Push manual mowers assists with creating all-natural mulch.
    One of the best weeds for pumping nutrients from the subsoil, it is especially beneficial to potatoes; onions and corn. These come in sections for you to assemble using the included
    hardware. Make sure to damp the leaves lightly with water so the
    cinnamon can stick to the leaves.
