Party Recap

Irina and I opened a shop!
Saturday was the big party and it was crazy!

The shop was packed full of people for most of the night. It was so fun and exciting. So many people came to hang out and wish us well (and shop, thankfully)!

The night was a total blur of hugs and champagne and confetti (more on the confetti part later).
I'll be sharing more photos of the shop throughout the week as I continue to recover from the craziness leading up to (and including) the party.

Two Lions: Family Love

This is my little sister's band.
They are really good and worth a listen if you like folk music at all.
Which you should.
I especially like the third song.

I've been super MIA from this blog. I've been spending my days working my normal job and then heading straight to the shop to work on getting ready for the opening (TOMORROW) grabbing a beer with friends and then going home to fall into bed. In short; super busy. I've also been reading Jane Eyre. I read on the train and it's the one part of the day that I don't obsess about the shop. I think it's really been helping me stay sane. Well, sort of sane.

Few & Far Between: The Secret is Out!

March 1st.
February was fine but March is exciting. Do you want to know why?
March is the month that I will be opening a shop with my good friend Irina. A real store. double yikes.
We have been planning for the past three months (this is part of why the blogging around here has been a bit scarce) and now the opening is almost here! Here's the deal.
Our shop is called:

If you've been reading the blog for a while you might know that I've been an assistant for my lovely friend Siri, over at her shop Treehouse, for the past year. Siri loves her sweet little shop (and so does everyone in the neighborhood) but she's also ready to take a quick break and it just so happens that Irina and I are ready to have a shop... So we are opening a pop-up shop for three months while Siri goes touring with her awesome band and works on her beautiful jewelry line and cool stuff like that! Siri wrote a great newsletter which you can see here.
And while Siri is off having her adventures, Irina and I will be here in Brooklyn tending to our store-within-a-store. Few & Far Between will feature beautiful vintage apparel and home goods alongside hand crafted jewelry and accessories by some of our favorite independent designers.
I am so excited. This is a total dream come true for me and I can't wait to show you some photos of the shop as we start to move our huge vintage collection in and get everything styled and lovely. Want to see some sneak-peeks?

We also have a Tumblr HERE and a Facebook page HERE.
One last thing for now; the big opening party is going to be on March 12th! If you live nearby you should mark your calendar. If you don't live nearby, tell a friend. I'll have more information coming soon so stay tuned!

I'm trying to decide what to knit next:

Deirdre by Linden Down (she also designed the Estelle, which I knit last year),

I think anyone of these would be perfect for early spring. But which one to choose....
What are you dreaming up for spring knitting?

Long Hair, Warm Weather, Dreaming

I think I have a new favorite photographer. Her name is Irina Werning and she did a whole set of photos of people with really long hair.

Love it.

I'm only slightly obsessed with Lodekka, the double decker bus turned vintage shop in Portland. Just slightly... I think.
Inhabitat has a nice article about it and some sweet peeks inside.

More of the Same

Playing with Noro and a solid yarn again. I love how the sapphire blue glows against the pale tan.
