I love all things vintage. I could spend DAYS on the hunt for the perfect vintage accessory. I use reclaimed baubles to make all sorts of lovelies. Finding that perfect pair of vintage boots makes my heart beat fast. In fact, if all I got for Christmas was a box full of old beads, lace, clothes…junk, I would be a pretty happy girl.
So why not give a little retro this season?

Well. I finally learned how to knit. Mind you, I said knit, not purl (for those of you who know what that means). I didn’t realize there was a whole new language I would have to learn. And why, oh why, are those tutorials so maddening? I am, however, proudly wearing my first knit piece…a cowl. And I’m addicted. Something about pretty balls of yarn and using your fingers to transform them….pure genius. Anyone have a good yarn supplier? I think I’m going to need it!
