New York

Rebecca and I had a great time in NYC. Rebecca thought I was never going to buy any yarn but I finally managed to buy 5 skeins, and she bought 5 skeins for a grand total of 10, so that means LimeDragon won the Birthday contest.

Now here is a second contest guess which picture below is Rebecca's yarn and which is my yarn purchased in NYC and a skein of yarn will be on its way to you. You have until midnite on Friday Feb 1 to guess....

Picture #1 to the left














Picture #2 to the right




So we went to 7 or so shops, we started at The Yarn Store on the upper west side, it is on the second floor up a steep flight of stairs. Personally an ok shop we have better here in Minneapolis. Then we went to The Point and Purl, in Greenwich Village and SoHo, both are cute little shops and both carry just a little bit of different stock from the other, The Point also has a coffee bar with soups and sandwiches and treats.

The next day we went to Seaport Yarns this one is my favorite. So much yarn that I am sure we missed some. It is at 135 William Street and on the fifth floor, it is one I visit almost everytime I am in NYC. Then we stopped at Habu, Stitches East and School House Products. We also went to the Radical Lace and Subversive Knitting exhibit at MAD (Mueseum of Art and Design) It was not your typical knitting, there are lace sculptures made from porcelain, a dress knitted of shredded dollar bills and some teeny tiny greek gloves. Check out the link above.

Next a preemie hat update I am finishing up number 12 and then I will be done


I told you red is my color, thanks Meg for letting me ride in your hood...D

And for the final one here it is . . . The Bow Tie Hat

I'd say with the red yarn and the sock yarn, the bottom one is yours and the top one is Rebecca's.

I think picture #2 is your yarn and picture #1 is Rebecca's.

Julie said...

I think #2 is yours.

Love the bowtie hat!

I am guessing your yarn is picture #1! :)

deepa said...

What a great hat...you'll have to share it with me for my little one!

As for guesses, I'm going to say #1 is Rebecca's and #2 is yours. I'll be honest and play before I see Rebecca's yarn in person. ;)

Another guess here for Picture #2 as yours. What colorway is that Jitterbug? And the Manos in the first picture? Yummy. Cute cat/hat pictures, too. :)

Welcome Home! I'm glad you had a great trip.

#1 Oranges/reds- clearly Rebecca!
#2 looks like you, Louise.

Jeanne said...

OK, #2 is yours.

Ducky, I think, needs her own hat. She must not mind them. My cats have to be held while they are modeling hats.

Those cats are great models and must be very patient cats too. They are cute. Picture #2
