Spring on the Way?

Despite a few predicted mischievous snowflakes, Spring seems to coming to NYC. Finally!

Because it's gray and rainy and dreary this morning--some more photos from the Philadelphia Flower Show to brighten the day.

Amtrak Knitting

I do like to plug in my ipod, listen to an audiobook and knit on train trips. The trip from Philadelphia is only 90 minutes--but--I did at least an hour of knitting. Started something new:

So far, the yarn is happy!

Spring Fever

No, NYC didn't suddenly burst into bloom. Hubster and I are in Philadelphia for the Flower Show. It's glorious! The colors, the flower-scented air! The promise that this long winter will end.

Looky look what else I found at the Flower Show---knitters!

This lady was sitting among the flowers knitting the softest scarf. I like how the yarn matches the flowers behind her. She was lovely and I wish I could have spent some time sitting with her on the bench knitting and chatting.

A little while later, a woman walked past me wearing the comfiest looking knit vest. And I just can't help myself--I had to know if it was hand knit. It was! At that point, I had a macro lens on my camera---so here's a super close-up of the very pretty yarn. The knitter and I exchanged Ravelry names, so now I'll be stalking. . . uh. . . that is. . . .watching what other beautiful things she'll be making.

Flowers and knitters----a great combination!

Me vs The Yarn

Remember this?

Still looks like that.

Remember this scarf? Wollmeise. 22.5 Degrees Scarf.

The Wollmeise wasn't happy. It tangled. Stitches jumped off the needles. Stitches dropped and tangled. The yarn won.

Just the yarn's way of asking to be frogged. It's now interviewing other patterns.

Something New

Not only a new blog post--but things are beginning to bud here in NYC!
