What's the Plan?

So, I arrived in midtown with a couple of hours to myself before the Harlot's appearance. The day was warm and I had a bulky suitcase with me, so a stroll through a museum was not exactly what I was looking for at the moment.

On the list for that New York visit was some fabric shopping. There's another sewing project in the works--this time a skirt--and I thought that a piece of silk would be nice. I wandered and I let the visual overload of all those colors and textures and fibers wash right over me. I spent a long time just letting my eyes wander in every shop that I visited.

It would have been sheer folly to allow myself to wander without giving myself some ground rules. Remember that great cotton ribbon yarn that I got from Kris in the swap? Finding a darker shade to coordinate with the Jaeger Albany was the goal.

After an hour or two, I settled on this. From a tiny shop on 37th. Or was it 38th? I don't remember.

It's time to start swatching the Jaeger.

 

Wow, those are great colors! Can't wait to see it...

Oh, a walk in the bustling garment district! Hard to manage those tiny little shops with a suitcase, but it seems you were undeterred :) Great find!

Mmm, nice. Looks like a great summer outfit.

love that skirt pattern, and I can't wait to see the swatch! :)

The Yarn Connection on Madison between 36th and 37th? That's my yarn store. They're awesome.

What a beautiful color combination!

So did you find a piece of silk to your liking? If you were in the garment district when you bought your yarn, perhaps you bought it at Vardham/Creative Knitworks on 39th? Were you next to Daytona Trimming? BTW, hi, have no idea how I found your blog, but I have added you to my bloglines.

That's going to make for a really elegant outfit. From what I've seen, the Albany looks very nice knit up -- it's such a nice, understated ribbon texture.

What beautiful colors! I am excited to see what you turn it into :)

Great color combo!
