plus size vintage style paris parket dress  and crochet 1940s snood via va voom vintage

It's been pretty rainy in St Louis lately but I've enjoyed some wet afternoons at home with my yarn basket and Dr. Who on Netflix. Some days, I love to sit with the windows open and listen to the rain fall on my tin awnings and knit or crochet something.

This week, I'm adding some new snood colors and art prints to the shop including my Knit and Puuurrl print, which I have hanging in my office. I usually bring something to work on when we go to my mom's house for the weekend and her bad kitties always get into the yarn or fall asleep on me while I work.
