it's time to take out the stacks of vintage craft magazines, patterns, and knitting guides i uncovered throughout the summer!
this is one element to thrifting that hadn't even occured to me until recently - thrift shops and estate sales are often brimming with retrocrafty treats. fabric, buttons, knitting needles; you name it. it's not only a fantastic way to accumulate heaps of unusual raw materials and ideas that your friends will swoon over, but it's also a very inexpensive way to build up a vast collection of potential rainy (snowy) day projects.
here's to a cup of hot cocoa, frosty windowpanes, and finally mastering the art of knitting this year!
