Close Knitters

Check out the July 20, 2011 blog entry on Close Knitters.

Stop in at Close Knit located 300 Franklin Avenue in Wyckoff.  It's my go-to local yarn shop.  They have a well chosen selection of yarns, tools, project ideas and a knowledgeable staff.  

I recommend Happy Hour offered each Friday from 3 - 6 pm. It is open to all and there is no fee.  Make some new fiber friends.  See what's on their needles and get inspired.

Visit their website for directions, hours and more.

Pantone Fall 2011

Don't get me wrong, I love the summer...but when there's multi-day air quality alerts with high humidity and temps above 90 degrees, I do look forward to a crisp, cool fall day with breathable air.

So, with that in mind, crank up the AC and take a look at the ten gorgeous, fashion forward colors for fall. Click on here and you'll go to the Pantone site with a listing of the Fall 2011 -- The Art of Color -- Sensible and Spirited.  You can also explore the page a 36 page fall fashion report and more. Click on downloadable pdf to the right above fall 2011.  I love the silhouette of the Adrienne Vittadini boucle sweater vest.
