Some more knitted goodies.

The cold weather is one of my biggest motivations for completing my knitting projects. 32 degrees? Yuck; and it will only get colder.

Well, to be honest, another motivation is having the biggest deadline of them all just around the corner: Christmas. YIKES!

I made this headband and scarf set today using the same wool as my other earwarmer/headband. Instead of the garter stitch, I used a seed stitch.

I think the texture of the seed stitch is very nice. Of course the pom-poms still need to be added to the earwarmers before they're completed, but over all... not bad for a day's work.

Stay warm, and happy knitting!

A photo moment.

I got to work very early this morning... I captured the sun rising.

le chien de papier

I made these guys out of paper.

An ominous triceratops skeleton looms in the background.

Safety in numbers.

A Demand for Knitted Headbands.

My knitted headband will keep you and your loved ones' ears warm.

How cute are the pom poms?

Today was the first wintery day in NYC.
Yes, yesterday was cold and windy~
...but today....
*It snowed*

A Trip to the Farmer's Market.

Autumn; sweater weather, scarf weather, mitten or fingerless glove weather. Don’t forget hot apple cider from the farmer’s market weather.

A few weeks ago, with the cool brisk air on my face, I spent the afternoon with Denise at the Farmer’s Market at Union Square (and at the new Muji store that opened near Canal and Broadway). All summer I neglected the Green Market by my midtown office; this was a perfect opportunity to catch up with an old friend and enjoy some of the fruits of a fall harvest.

My objective: to get a hot cup of apple cider.

The results: Apple Cider, Apple Cider Donuts, Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies, Concord Grapes, Fuji Apples, and some cheese. Also I managed to get a bit of Denise’s ginger maple candy and gingersnap cookie... and a felt dinosaur hand made by Den. He eats vegies!

I look forward to visiting the market again soon.

Next trip’s objective: Ingredients for a chicken and vegetable soup and maybe not so many sweets.
