New York, NY
I'm a day late on my post but I hope I'm not a dollar short because I've got a little somethin' for ya! My husband has been traveling a bit and it worked out that we could meet up in NYC for the night Thursday and spend the day Friday in the city. It's our favorite place and it's sort of a special place for us to visit. There's a certain magic in the air on the streets of New York that we love equally. We spent most of our time eating amazing food and walking around Soho. Since I was in Soho I couldn't miss the opportunity to swing into Purl Soho. I picked up some more Madelinetosh (of course) and some Manos del Uruguay to make some of these for another Christmas gift. Pattern also courtesy of Purl Soho's Joelle Horverson and their Book More Last Minute Knitted Gifts. Excellent book - and highly recommended! It not only gives you a bunch of great quick ideas for gifts but the book itself makes a great gift too - it's beautiful! Alright, so what's in it for you? It might seem a little unrelated, but it's not. There is something about NYC and Starbucks that go hand in hand for me. Maybe it's because there is one located on just about every corner but I love walking the streets with a Latte in hand. It's even better this time of year when it's a bit chilly and the red holiday cups are out that makes the coffee taste a 'lil better. Plus don't you just love a cup of coffee while you're knitting? Leave us a comment and you could win a $20 Starbucks gift card. We'll select a winner Monday afternoon! I apologize I didn't get this posted on Veteran's Day but I did want to make a moment and thank all of those who serve and have served our country. I'm deeply indebted to you and I'm more than grateful for your courage.
