The weekend saw the first French Toast Alert of the season roundabout Exit 151. But rather than rush to the supermarket to stock up on French toast fixings, Nancy and I ventured out to the Brooklyn Tweed book signing at Knitknack. It was relaxed and low-key, except for the moment that Meera and Jared posed together and everyone in the shop pulled out their cameras!

Alas, I went to the party with no Brooklyn Tweed on me. At least I got to ogle some real-life examples, including a Stillwell. I'd still like to knit Stillwell, although lately I've been thinking more about a project that Jared Flood photographed, the EZ Green Sweater reconstructed by Sunday Holm, than any of his own designs. ::cough::

Speaking of green, yesterday I came home to find waiting not one, but two Plurk Cowl Swap cowls from my upstream pal. Thank you, Constance, they are diversely beautiful and I know I'll get good use from them.

Now why do I keep thinking, "It's a sign! It's a sign!"

You'll get good use of them tomorrow! (Allegedly!) I was pleasantly surprised, ShopRite had plenty of eggs, bread and milk when I went (as I do every other Saturday regardless of weather) on Saturday. Maybe people were cleaning out the remodeled Stop N'Shop instead?

Wow, you lucky lucky gal. I love the EZ Green Sweater too, it's so simply elegant. Has anyone written up the pattern?

OOps, I see Schoolhouse Press has the pattern.
