Happy Friday my dearies!
- Mikey teaching me how to use a snowblower
I get to celebrate Mike's birthday with him tomorrow. I can't wait! (and yes... he got something hand-knitted) (I think he knows since one of his presents is kind of squishy).
But I did something fun today... I never do things like this... I went to the Beekman 1802 shop in Sharon Springs NY this morning. What a fun destination. The shop is pristine and something that is out of a dream. A wonderful collection of handicrafts, cookbooks....and the smell ....ahhhhhh. I love it there!
And while I was getting some last minute stocking stuffers I noticed my hands were really --umm... winterized. Having super dry hands is not good for knitting (or your cuticles, kids!). Tonight I am going to work on a fun little purse out of the new Stained Glass yarn I just got in. So I needed to have unchapped hands to design this purse I have swirling around in my head.
So, I have to tell you about this little gem I found at Beekman 1802 (and can't stop using... and I'm wondering why I didn't get more...); it's called Stick of Butter. It has 4 different scents. I got "Spring". It is like a little luxury. You can purchase it by visiting this link: http://shop.beekman1802.com/Beekman-1802-Stick-of-Butter-BP9.htm
I've used it this morning and my hands are all better and the scent is wonderful. It's a nice dense blast of moisture perfect for winter hands. And I'll let you know how my design turns out for the purse too!
And don't forget, I just featured a new yarn for the next week that's on a nice sale. Check out the savings and the yarn by clicking here.
Have a great weekend!
