These are the bags I've finished and will have at the November craft show. The three I just finished this week are on the right. I have carried one of these for so many years that I've lost track. However, last week I purchased a bag with a zipped top to take on the subway, just as a precaution. Every time I walk by it I wonder who left their bag here.
I have a box of hats already, so I don't think I'll try to make anymore. They're left over from the Brewery Arts Center venue. Oops - somehow my toes became part of the image, which tells you that it's warmed back up again.
My trip knitting is socks. I had completed an entire sock with this yarn but it was just about 5 stitches too snug for me to be comfortable with. Hand-spun socks snug up a little after a few washings, no matter how careful I am. I've frogged my earlier project and am going with a 10-stitch repeat called Fishtail.
Our flight departs tomorrow morning at 8:00. It will take all day with layovers and we've planned the next day, Sunday, to take the ferry to Governors Island. That's the last day it will be open this season and I have never been. We only have a three days with ticketed items, and so the rest of our time is when we feel like it. I want to walk the High Line this time, and of course, browse The Strand, a used bookstore with 8 miles of books! The Guggenheim is a given, and the current exhibition parlays on the Kandinsky we saw last year - the European years between WWI and WWII. There should be a little Bauhaus and maybe some Annie Albers.
I hope that we can go to the Museum of Art and Design on Tuesday and also eat at their restaurant for my birthday. I argued with myself about their exhibition catalog from last year and decided against it, which I have regretted. Ian wanted to surprise me with it as a gift and found that they're going for $1,000. Yikes!!
I wore myself out packing, leaving enough room to bring home fabric from Mood. We see Women on the Edge of a Nervous Breakdown on Wednesday. It's with Patti Lapone, from Evita and the voice of Don't Cry for me Argentina. It's still in previews which means it costs us less. We are seeing the reprise of La Cage aux Falles with Kelsey Grammer on Saturday. Both musicals are matinees - the "real theater" is past our bedtime!
We also have Yankees tickets for Monday, the 18th, definitely past our bedtime. Ian has spent a week, scouting out these tickets. Our first tickets were for a game that wasn't going to be played after they lost to the Socks. Tickets are just about impossible to get. Good thing he's a professional researcher! We got the cheap seats up high in left field and they were more than we've ever paid for theater tickets. I am really looking forward to being there in the spirit of the game. I hope I'll be able to see Mariano Rivera pitch his closing magic. I can't decide between contact lenses and glasses. I want to see it all! I'll see you all back in two weeks~
I'm back on the wagon
