I'm still in the city and just thought I'd share some photos of a new-to-me fabric and knitting store I visited in Brooklyn today. It's called the Brooklyn General Store and is located in Carroll Gardens. I used to live around here and never knew this existed, but then again I wasn't sewing in those days so...
Oh, and I also attended the BurdaStyle launch party a month or so ago here in NYC! It was held in a neat old bookstore in SoHo, and I found out later that the red dress in the photo here was created by Casey of Elegant Musings. Really cool to see the projects in person, but boy was it toasty in there. I also said "hi" to Gertie real quick, I'm sure she got a lot of those that night!
And I'll leave you with a glimpse of the holiday shops and the glowing marble fountain in Bryant Park. I bought some earmuffs to warm myself up and just enjoyed walking around, listening to the Christmas music, and watching people ice skate. Such a festive time of year in the Big Apple.
So long for now, and I hope to be near my sewing machine sometime soon. I haven't forgotten you, Oolong II!
