New York City and Blueberry Waffles.
You ask, "Why on earth is the banner for the New York Post on this knitting blog?" Well, New York is where I was yesterday. My dad had a doctor appointment at Sloan Kettering and I had the opportunity to go along. So, at o'dark-thirty we heading off for the nearest Amtrack station (2 hours away) and buzzed right on up to Penn Station. It was a very quick trip, but we did get a taxi ride back to Penn Station after the appointment and went through Central Park and Times' Square. Very cool!
Knitting was attempted, but in general was pretty unsuccessful. I took along a sock that I've been working on for forever. It's beautiful merino yarn by Shaeffer. But the train was pretty bumpy to do such fine work. And I ripped out the heel flap and started that over again. (These socks originally were knitted in the Broadripple pattern and I didn't like that and frogged the whole sock.) This time around I'm doing the Blueberry Waffle pattern.
