Update from NYC

I have been caught up in the global unrest. I have taken it very hard, and life seems to be a little suspended at this time. I take care of the basics, although don't get enough sleep. Too much information to absorb. And worse- not much knitting. Darn, I miss my knitting........

I have knits 3 red squares for a communal flag afghan. A group of The Colbert Report fans is knitting for Stephen.

A neck warmer for sit n knit cowl exchange. The Good Luck Cowl, in Lorna Lace sock yarn. This yarn is really nice to work with. I have some left over, I might have to use some for myself.........

And made some progress on my 007, in Rowan Feted Tweed. I was hoping for a Rhinebeck debut, and I hope to get to the sleeves tonight. There is not much time.

So I'll be in Rhinebeck on Sat 10/18. Hope to see some of you there!

Welcome back from the real world. Better to knit as much as possible to help get through these terrible times. The sweater looks great.

I hope you get more sleep and more knitting soon. The 007 looks great :-)

it IS a restless world nowadays, it is getting restless here in Europe as well: the state has bought 2 banks. Figure. But knitting is still the way to put your mind at ease. So keep on knitting! (and to spend money on yarn will help the economy)

007 looking beautiful, I'm with you on knitting neckwarmers (you started me on those as I recall...) and I wish, oh I wish, I could be at Rhinebeck!

Hugs from a damp and drizzly Ireland

Good to see you back. I love your 007 - the colour is great, a real winter warmer. And the cowl looks really snuggly - definately treat your self to a cheer up cowl to hug your neck!

Hey there--
I think we've all needed a 'time out' for one reason or another. I love Colbert, but I heart Rachel Maddow. one of these days I'll get to Rhinebeck.
Take care,Mary
