On Nnenna’s Needles #21: Ombre-Like

Here’s a sneak peek of my latest knitting project, something I’m making for my new home. I’ve held back from decorating the place that I’m staying at currently because I know it’s only mine for the summer, but I’m already very excited about having my own place in the fall. I’ll have free license to decorate it however I want to and hopefully this project I’m working on will make the new apartment feel a little bit more like home.

Also, just wanted to tell you guys that I’ve got some exciting things for the blog coming up in July! I’ve been working really hard on this stuff behind the scenes and there’s only a couple more weeks until I can reveal it all to you, so stay tuned! =)

P.S. Ten points for anyone who can guess what this is going to be! :D

I’m Nnenna and this is my online journal where I write about the books I can’t put down, my personal style, the places I’ve traveled to, the products I love, my favorite spots in NYC, and more!

    I just started knitting this week and it is so much fun.  I'm doing it right now actually as I am replying to blog comments. I'm looking forward to seeing your project. Mine is a red jumper, it is going to take weeks I think.
