things on the internet that are awesome

October 29th, 2009

I don’t normally do posts like this–there are plenty of others who do it often and well–but it’s been busy around here lately. And if we aren’t busy then we’ve been sick, so my evenings are filled with the wonderful and mindless linklinklinking that is the internet. There is some fantastic stuff out there. So here’s a little list of things on the internet that are awesome (this week):

Stella McCartney for the gap. I can’t get over the how awesome the band jacket is and that leopard dress ain’t too shabby either.

this is an ikea chair. and though I have too much ikea shit in my house and would rather not have more, I love this freakin chair.

my kids would go crazy for these blocks (called playshapes)by Miller Goodman and I would probably play with them a bunch too.

I know this is an old post from the purl bee, but I just learned to crochet so it’s new to me. And isn’t it beautiful?

And these slippers look perfect for slipping on right about now (if you knit she sells the pattern, if you don’t she’ll make them for you).

ok. I think that’s enough, I’m getting all wanty now.

    That’s the best part of having a kid (ok, well, one of the best parts) Being able to find her the coolest toys so I can play with them too!

    Looks like I’m going to be knitting me some slippers.

    I think you should try the granny square afghan – it’s great practice and it’s a nice stop and start project.

  5. You always post such lovely projects! I was hoping to make some of your half eaten gingerbread boys but I can’t find a photo. Would you be willing to share one with me?

  6. What lovely slippers. I didn’t have much luck last time that I tried felting, mind.

    I can honestly say I agree with you on all counts…great list. I love the purple pants from the previous post as well, they make me wish I was better at sewing garments!

    I too dig that chair from Ikea…and as for Stella McCartney for Gap–all I can ask myself is, why, oh why, can’t she design for the big people instead of the little ones?

    You pretty much did my Christmas shopping for my niece! She will love the russian book and the play shapes. I am just wondering how much the play shapes will come out to in dollars…might be kind of pricey, but so cute! Thanks!
