Some things had been on my list for a while. Heaven knows what a customs man thinks when he opens up my suitcase to find so many bleach pens. This time, Tide-to-go was an additional find. I think there might be a more interesting use for it beyond removing stains? We will see.
Next on the list was to look at the Amy Butler bag patterns. Fortunately, that stop at Mood fabrics meant that I have a few bits of fabric to try.
It's too much of a challenge to leave a yarn store empty handed - School Products (two hanks of laceweight cashmere), Seaport Yarns (four skeins of sock yarn) and Habu (two cones of ever-so-ever-so-fine yarn and the two ditzy bitzy oddments) all had plenty of temptation.
As did Purl, although there it was these small, hand held weaving looms which grabbed my attention. Sadly, on getting back to the hotel, I found both boxes empty, so they are posting them on the me. A variation on "have it sent round" perhaps?
(Entertainment of the day: spelling out my rather complicated address over a crackly cellphone line. I have confirmed by email in the hope that the odds of them arriving safely will be increased!)
Last but not least, Toho beads on 6th Avenue, where I planned another couple of Caterpillar bracelets.
(BTW, I hope the green dye comes out of the white starched linen tablecloth in the Upper East Side restaurant, after I returned to my place having washed my hands whilst wearing the original Caterpillar!)
Finally, the wonderful treasure shared amongst friends. Look what Jordi had collected for me! I promise to post the results of my dyeing session.
