doughnuts and bracelets - otherwise known as today.

This morning I waited in line for a half hour in the rain for doughnuts from the Doughnut Vault, a new shop that is a block from work. It was worth every minute - the doughnuts were amazing. 

Can you spot me in this picture from their facebook? Hint - I am the most colorful person in line. 

This morning I took this tutorial from V & Co. for a spin, and I like the results:

friendship bracelet!

It's just a simple finger knitting technique, but I think it turned out fun and summery and I'm hoping to swap some with some long-distance friends! Anyone else wanna get in on that?


  1. Glad you snagged a doughnut, I'd been following their progress for MONTHS. Suffice to say I managed to snag some doughnuts on their opening day, thankfully there was no line then!

    I'm hoping this starts a trend of local doughnuts shops in Chicago, we're definitely lacking them.

  2. Mmmm... Doughnuts.

    The bracelet is cute! I've never tried finger knitting like that before. I learned a slightly different style of it.

  3. I see you! I think you should have saved us one of those delicious doughnuts!!


Comments make me happy! Thank you, and look for your response here!
