I miss Oprah. I know it's kinda weird. I didn't even watch it everyday, but once in a while at 4:00, I would start getting stuff ready for dinner and turn it on in the background. What I did try to catch though was her Favorite Things show. Lots of cool goodies. Everyone has their own favorite things right? Something you got on sale, or given to you as a gift, or bought on vacation. It doesn't even have to be expensive either. So in honor of Oprah, how about sharing a few of your favorite things with other bloggers? Like a favoritethingalong? Right. I will start.......
Local Harvest and check out their site. It's like getting a present delivered to your front door (fun!) full of fresh food. The produce so far has been amazing. An example of what I got this week: Sweet yellow Gypsy peppers (they were sooo good), strawberries, avocados, heirloom tomatoes, carrots, bok choy, cilantro, lettuce and a juicy melon. Good stuff.
Yes this is the beginning of a granny blanket made with Stylecraft special DK, using the pattern by the famous Lucy from Attic 24. I finally started one. And it's fun. And the yarn is great! Thank you Lucy! I looked all over the internet and my local yarn shops to find a DK weight yarn with lots of color choices and prices that compare with Stylecraft. Nothing. At least not in the U.S. If you know of a local product, let me know. However until then I'm getting this from Deramores. They ship free to the U.S. and their prices are good and considering it is coming from across the pond, they are pretty quick too!
By the way, these are my own opinions and I have not received endorsements from any of the above mentioned products. Heck, I'm a new blogger, they don't even know I exist.
What are some of your favorite things?
