Time flies

It's been a few weeks since my last post. School is madness. Thankfully last week was Spring Break and I got to take some time off. I made it to Culpepper, VA to see my friends and god-son (the commute to DC is crazy...what people have to go through to buy a house....let me tell you!) and then came back to NYC to veg out.

I thought I'd share my pics from my trip to The Met. NYC has so many museums and I thought it'd be a shame not to take advantage of my proximity.

The place is ridiculously huge and there is so much too see. This go around I made it to the Costume Institute exhibit, the Modern Art, and the Africa/Americans exhibit.

This is an absolutely fabulous Rodarte dress!

I got chills when I saw this one! This is one of my favorite Degas drawings. I didn't realize that it was at this museum. I was so excited. (My life is dull....I get my thrills where I can.)

The Africa/Americas exhibit is mostly sculptures and artifacts.

The place is a fountain of inspiration. I'm hoping to get to the Guggenheim and the MoMA soon.

One of these days I'm going to post a pic of my lastest knit which is almost finished. I also want to post about what I'm working on in school. I figure...I don't have much knitting to show but I can show other fashion related stuff.

Other side of the fence

Things are definitely greener at Chez Saun. It's amazing what a change in environment and a little more space will do for your outlook on life.

I wanted to show a few of my new additions. Ther are my new favoritest things. ( I know favoritest is not a word but I like it anyway.)

It's a Method Aroma Ring with the Vanilla Pomme scent. This is the best smelling air freshener I've ever smelt.

Then there is my new French Press. I never knew coffee could be soooooo good. I got it because I wanted to be able to clean my coffee maker better and get rid of the need for paper filters. Cleaning out the coffee grounds is not as easy as with a filter but it's definitely cleaner at the end of the day. And did I forget to add that the coffee tastes better.

Also......I got my mojo back. My knitting mojo that is. It was M.I.A. for a while now. With school under control and a slightly longer commute I've found a real urge to knit. I started by finishing my "Swing Girl" coat. I've been working on this same coat since August. That is a long time.

It has a high wide neck and overlaps slightly like a double breasted jacket. Hopefully I'll be able to get some better pictures this weekend. Sunlight is so limited but thankfully spring it right around the corner.

I also got some ideas for some new summer tees that I plan to work on during my spring break. A whole week of nothing but knitting. I can't wait.
