Under the weather, but fighting it.....

Still under the weather, and its a very damp and rainy day in NYC. Actually, it was rather pleasant to sit for an hour and just knit a few rows on my Trekking socks. But not much more happened here knit wise. I did finish my malabrigo gloves. So now I have a set. Hat, neck warmer and gloves. All very soft and warm! Lovely yarn malabrigo.

Today I went to my LYS, Knitty City, to participate in the Coral Reef Project. a crochet event no less, but hey, ok. Anything to lift the dampened spirits. Each one of us made a coral piece. Some are very cool. I made the little green one, (I only had one hour) but I learned how to make the big one, and I just might embark on this. It is an almost mindless project that is well suited for TV watching. Fun and creative. The exhibit, which will appear in the NYU university’s Broadway Windows at East 10th Street and at the World Financial Center will be in NYC from April 5 through May 18.

Oh wow... your set is just lovely! It's all "sorbet-y" and definitely just the thing to wake you up from the winter doldrums.

I like the coral pieces, it sounds like an interesting project.

I love the colors you chose for your hat/gloves/neckwarmer set! So bright and cheerful! THey will brighten up even the dullest grey NY day!

I am glad we are finally getting some sun, even if it's a bit chilly - at least you can feel spring is finally on its way! (I live in Westchester).

The coral project sounds like such fun! I will have to stop by my alma mater (grad school) and take a look! :)
