I am incredibly slow today, therefor I've decided to not make plans with anyone and just do the things I've been meaning to do for the past few days. One of which is go to the plant store down the street and grab some new ivy plants. These two little babe's are my purchases for today :

This little lady (I call her a lady because she is red) I bought from Crest Hardware a couple weeks ago with intentions of leaving her on my fire escape to bask in the sun, one week of fire escape life and she was blown all over the place and nearly falling over in the pot. I panicked, watered the hell out of her and tied some yarn around her leaves to hopefully keep some stability and found a new home for her inside. She will now live under the sky light in the living room.

Now these 3 live on the fire escape alone, the two little ones (that I planted from seeds) won't have to protection of rouge leaf anymore if it gets windy so I hope they start wrapping around the poles before we have any other wind storms. The one on the far left is was a housewarming gift from my friend Heather. She also planted this guy from a seed. Super adorable. I love plants... now that I know how to not kill them.

Due to my hangover, I don't have much else for today that I can think of. I started dragonfly sock a couple days ago. Just about done the first one, so simple and adorable. Photos soon. I'm also still working on my cape that I am making up the pattern as I go. I have decided I'm going to be really upset if it doesn't work and REALLY excited if it does.

I also want to take sewing classes, anyone got a good place in NYC?

83. FO

Dear Pillow Case,

You are the cutest thing ever and I love you a lot. I will make more of your kind so you can have friends.

Needles: US 8 Circular 24"
1 Skein Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted

85% wool / 15% mohair
Pattern: Improvised using Woven stitch - knit in the round and seamed at top & bottom.

I love it. So so so much. I want to make a million more.

The 4th was incredibly epic for me. I worked until 5pm then hit a rooftop bbq in bushwick, stayed a few hours until we were "asked to leave" because one of us lit of some fireworks after the people who lived in the building apparently made an announcement that we weren't aloud to do that anymore. We moved on to another rooftop down the street that was far more amazing than the first one with way less people (which in our state was perfect). We danced/pranced & giggled around the best kept secret roof in brooklyn for hours until we finally ended up at our friends place who happens to have a front lawn entirely inclosed by ivy & trees. Turned on the christmas lights, brought out all the pillows and blankets in the house and slept on the front lawn. 5 boys + 3 girls all cuddled up on a lawn until 9am. It was beautiful.

How was your 4th?

Going to visit a pregnant woman is one of the best kinds of vacations. I never knew it would be so awesome but god bless anyone that needs a nap every 3 hours!!

I got plenty of knitting in while I was there :

And I just came home to some AMAZING images from a shoot I did last week:

I am so in love with this story. The rest of it is on my website.

New projects in the works.
