On the last day of this lovely long weekend, I am remembering, planning, and pondering.
First up, I am quite certain that Blaer will be a challenge (if not impossible) to complete by the end of November. I spent a good bit of one on one time with Blaer yesterday and I am NOT TO THE SLEEVE DIVIDE YET. That’s right… and I have a good 3 inches to go before I get to that point. Cue the deep sighing… lots of deep sighing! Perhaps I can salvage this situation by flipping gears a bit. I have “plan b” formulated and if I get gauge, I might pull off a successful NaKniSweMo yet! Stay tuned…
On Friday I went to the fabric store (aka JoAnn’s… how I wish there was a Fields Fabrics here!!) But I did have some success… I see in my future a Thea Rachelle Raglan shirt, an Ann Carolyn Smock, and a Dress No. 2 with a sleeve variation!
Saturday’s visit to the Vintage Mixer was AMAZING!! The people watching! The nostalgia! The clothing!! The glassware! Oh, and who knew that our grandma’s pyrex would be so popular! We picked up a couple of bar finds that will make Friday night’s a little more special. We shared a slab of pie from Piebird and wow…so.freaking.good! I also loved that the bar was open at 10am… One suggestion I would make to the Mixer Masters is that they really need a sitting area…it would make sipping a libation and watching the people so much easier! I loved seeing so many people all decked out in their vintage duds! For lunch we headed to church… and ate WAY too much!
All in all, it was a great weekend! How about you… how was your weekend?
I’m planning to sew my corduroy dress this afternoon. Did you order that paper patterns or the digital downloads?
Sounds like a great weekend (especially Church – LOVE that place!!). Gld the mixer was such fun.
I LOVE that fish pitcher and will look forward to seeing it on future Fridays! I bet lots of drinks will taste better served from it!
Sounds like a wonderful weekend! I don’t think I am going to finish my husband’s sweater by the end of month either, but I didn’t officially declare it for NaKnitSweMo and it technically doesn’t need to be done until mid-December.
Looking forward to seeing what those beautiful fabrics turn into!
That Vintage Mixer sounds like a blast! Grandma’s Pyrex is all over the antique malls here.
Oh, YES to the Vintage Mixer! So glad you had such a fun time — AND picked up some cool bar stuff to boot! (And things like NaKniSweMo are highly overrated, y’know?)
Vintage barware is my favorite – great finds, Kat! and awesome fabric finds, too … looking forward to seeing those makes come to life! as for the sweaters, well, I might advise to stick with the project you love and throw the challenge out the window … because it’s not really about the challenge, right? it’s about the sweater!
It was a COLD weekend. LOL Our heat shut off on Friday night. We spent all day Saturday finding someone who would come out. Then waiting for him to get here. But, thankfully……easy fix and we had heat.
Sunday was spent relaxing and enjoying a bit of sunshine.
Sounds like a fun time, despite lack of seating. (More places lack that option and I guess younger people don’t see it as a negative.) LOVE your new barware!
Sounds like a really awesome Sunday at the mixer and then lunch! I’m always in search of vintage barware, I’d especially like a vintage martini set but I haven’t found an in tact one yet.
Great finds Kat! I really need a new (bigger)shaker. And remember…no pressure in the knitting world!
my weekend was awesome, I stayed home, didn’t travel. I knit and read and relaxed. Oh and we had some flurries!!
