Exciting knitting news! I just put two-and-two together that Knit Wit (where I have been downloading loads of patterns from online) has its storefront (literally) four block away from my apartment. They have so many amazing patterns and choices for yarn, and I can’t believe it is so close to me! I came across it when I was checking out the new Portland Food Coop. Needless to say, I bought some new goodies, and another set of projects are underway!
On an unrelated note: zucchini is one of my favorite pasta-alternatives. It’s so quick and easy to peel with a vegetable peeler, and you don’t have to worry about gluten, carbs, etc—you’re just eating more yummy, healthy veggies—actually it’s a fruit, believe it or not! If you are interested in some health benefits of zucchini and info, look here.
