Blankie Update With Perspective

Rose the Gypsy was here for Yarnover this past weekend. We had a fiberliscious time with classes, good food and drink, a frenzy of cataloging in Ravelry and conversation.

When she saw the blankie she was surprised at how small the squares are.  As a result I asked Ben Franklin to help with perspective:

So that's the size of the squares:

She brought leftover sock yarn to add to the mix, so now it is a group effort with contributions from The Gypsy, Chelsea, Kris, Elizabeth and Karen at Needlework Unlimited.

I've also been working on socks.  One of the benefits is that as I work on socks I get more leftovers to add to the blankie :D

More later as I really should be working.

Cindy Lou Who is Two

I went to a two year old birthday party on Saturday.

It was quite the exciting event.

Turns out two year old birthday parties are at 10 in the morning ...

... so that a nap can be taken in the afternoon.

Which is great because Nana needed a nap after the party too :)

NYC Other Stuff

Other things I did in NYC .... I met Rose the Gypsy and went to the Isaac Mizrahi exhibit at the Jewish Museum, saw some of the permanent collection and had lunch.

I wasn't sure what I liked best about this woman's style - the hair, the shoes or the fact that she had a pet carrier along with her other bags:

I love trains but the NY subway is hard to navigate :(

I do just love the city.  I went to the Tenement Museum too, but no photos are allowed.  You'll have to take my word for it - it's worth the visit.

I got a hank of souvenir yarn at Purl Soho (they have nice yarn but remember liking Knitty City more).

I also squeezed in the show Beautiful.  Unfortunately, I was forced to check my weapons (aka knitting needles) so I didn't get to finish my sock that night.

I thought about telling the kid I knit so I don't kill people in the hope that he wouldn't make me check them, but then I thought better of it.  Seriously, does he think a 55 year old woman seeing a Broadway show about Carole King's life is a threat to someone or something?
