New York purchases

I’m back from my trip to New York and Chicago. I’ve bought more than 20 things in total! But here, I will just share the tools I’ve bought for my work.  All bought from a yarn shop called “purl” in Soho, New York.

Actually, I must tell you about my incident in Chicago before that.  I and my parents went on a 2 hour boat tour to see the amazing architecture and the huge lake.  It was great but really sunny.  Of course, I was wearing a hat, covered in sunblock and my new linen scarf but I felt a bit dizzy in about an hour so I decided to go downstairs, inside the boat to stay away from sunlight.  When I stood up, I fainted and that was it.  The girl who hates the sun had a sunstroke.  I was carried downstairs by my dad and a crew member and lay down for the rest of the tour.  I managed to walk out of the boat but when I climbed the stairs(why so many stairs, now?) to get to the street, I went off again and was taken back to the hotel by taxi.  Now, I’m fine but my foot which I had to drag for a few days is still recovering from the bruise/scratch I got then! I must get used to sunlight a bit more or never stay in sunlight for too long, which shall I choose?

Sajou does many vintage inspired things, so nice.
