let's tie the knit

nikki gabriel has influenced me to knit myself some pieces for the coming winter season, or at least attempt to. i think i'll be having some fun with these knitting needles. literally, they're so big, you could do so many 'fun' things with them. okay, inappropriate. moving on. the knitting patterns are quite low in content for the $20 (each) price tag. i think i was sold by the simple packaging. i'm so easily influenced by good packaging. as you can see, i clearly have a thing brown paper bags. i kid you not. if i made a purchase and did not need a bag, but knew this particular store used paper bags, i'd request for one. i'm environmentally friendly like that. i have growing a stash. no particular use for them as yet, but they'll come in handy one day, i'm sure. i did purchase darning needles, however, i may have left them at the clegs counter as i darted to catch my tram. curses. will try to redeem them with my receipt tomorrow. eta: found them in my paper bag.

also purchased frankie. i used to buy this magazine religiously on a bi-monthly basis, but i began to love the magazine a little less due to their advertisements. i just think they should be a tad bit more selective with their ad clientele. i'd like to see an ad that appeals to me. i think only a minority, if any, of frankie readers dig the surf style. which begs the question - why plaster it all over the magazine? cater to your readers, frankie. that said, it's still a good read. and i'm thankful that the witty minds of mia timpano and benjamin law still linger here and there.
