17 Days and Counting...

I am sorry for those of you who have been checking back here for updates on a regular basis. Unfortunately knitting has taken a major back seat in my life right now with only 17 DAYS UNTIL MY WEDDING!

I must admit that while I miss the stress relieving properties of a good knitting project, my UFOs will have to wait until April for some TLC.

Randy and I are almost ready for the big day and even more excited to enjoy some much needed vacation time in the Dominican Republic.

Does anyone have last minute wedding advice to share? Ways to de-stress?

Until Next Time,
Broke Bride

Bring It On Nemo!

As most of my fellow New Yorkers are running around in a panic over milk and eggs, Broke Knitter is so excited for this beautiful winter wonderland outside. As Nemo approaches I am just get happier and happier.

Randy and I canceled out trip to Boston this week - obviously! - and we could both really use a wedding-free relaxing weekend. But what makes me most excited is the prospect of being locked inside with some cocoa and some knitting. I have started on a beautiful lace scarf to match my lace fingerless gloves made in a fruitful forest green yarn from Kraemer Yarns. I cannot wait to wear this beautiful scarf over a blouse in my office next week.

I am also so excited for my inaugural meeting with the Big Apple Knitting Guild! I am so happy to have joined a group of knitters here in NYC. They have already been so welcoming. I cannot wait to see what fun projects they are working on!

In all the craziness of this storm please don't forget to take a moment to slow down and relax a  bit. Snuggle up with someone you love and watch a good movie. Or order a pizza and pig out for a bit. Take some you time. Thank you Nemo!

Until Next Time,
Broke Knitter

Oh no! I think it is happening. This must be how Bruce Banner feels when he fights the urge to turn into the Hulk. Wedding planning sure is stressful! Now add in not have running water for a few days, plumbers ripping your walls apart and a Nor'easter on its way to the Big Apple.

Help Me!

Until Next Time,

February Showers?

I made it through my cray-cray week at work and I am so excited to leave work tonight and head to Boston for my bridal shower. I cannot wait to have all of my favorite people that I love so much in one room at the same time. With all of the stress of wedding planning you really realize who your friends are. I am constantly surrounded by amazing family and friends who are more than eager to help Randy and I celebrate the big day.

Pictures to come! Broke Knitter with a silly bow bouquet.

Until Next Time,
Here Comes the 43 days!
