Away

They say art is good when it makes us react either way, so I guess the "Brides" is doing its job. It is located in The Lever House, in NYC on Park Ave (between 53rd & 54th Streets). We are very lucky in NYC to have such a great variety of art to experience first hand.
So I am away for a week or so since Friday. I was very upset that I did not receive my Petal collection package on Friday before I left. It was going to be my trip project. I have limited PC access here, (can't use all the time and can't upload pix) which is good and bad. Sorry can't pix the post.
On the plane, I finished my son's trekking XXL 101 socks (from the yarn I had left over from my pair, ) which I started last week. I love the idea of mommy and me socks Ala sock pron.
I started the razor shell socks, with yarn I had in the stash but could not find the tag before I left. I sort of packed in a hurry, since I was fully expecting to take the new petal collection socks with me. The razor pattern is flowing for me now, since I made the Razor Cami not even 2 weeks ago.
The new air regulation allow you to bring all your knitting stuff on board (for which I am very greatfull!), but not water... a travel tip, if you are a water drinker, bring an empty bottle with you, with a cap, and have them fill it for you as you get on the flight. its really annoying to have to constantly ask for water and have to either finish a whole cup at once, or risk the spills... If you fly business or First, they give you indi bottles...

I hate rushing around trying to pick a knitting project for a trip. Either I bring too much or leave something behind.:( Maybe there's a LYS nearby where you can get a little fix. I just downloaded the razor socks--time to shop the stash! Enjoy your time off!

I'm glad they've let your knitting on board. It would have been a pain if they hadn't.

Thanks for tip on the razor socks. Sorry you didn't get to do the project you wanted on your trip - but it's great that you could take your knitting on the flight - I've been told I can't in the past (nearly cried too).

The opening went great, thank's for asking. Lots of people and some of my fellow artists was lucky enough to sell their pieces. Not me though, but then again, it's not everybody who has space enough to decorate their places with installations, and installations is most of what I do nowadays. But I've been thinking for a while about taking up paiting and cheramics (raku) again. Or photographing. Or filming. Well, we all see about that.
Autumn is slowly entering in Sweden. How about New York? Is it getting chillier yet?
When I wright in english I always feel like I'm spelling like a .... hmmm, don't even have the word for it. I hope you understand it's not because I'm rude, I just don't have energy to check every single word in my dictionary. I hope you'll figure out what I mean anyway dispite gramatic mishaps.

Dearest, You seem to be alright (even without your project). A person that can give so many generous comments to other is a reflection of the true self. You are truely amazing. Even if your blog says away, you always feels so present to me. I'm sure your trip will will be great, as well as coming back.
