Weekend Update, Looking for Inspiration

We walked the streets of New York this weekend to see what was going on uptown in fashion, in display, something to move us mentally forward

as we begin the new year. The city itself is always inspiring, but the takeaway was, HANDMADE rules.

But the absolutely BEST was Vogue Knitting Live, if you are a fiber lover,

Met up with fellow makers, jeweler Cara Romano who incorporates fiber into her pieces

Long Island Livestock Co., who have a line of wonderful natural yarns, and truth be told I visit their farm whenever possible to see the gorgeous creatures, Llamas, Alpacas, Sheep their fibers come from
