Look, a cruise!
Look, knitters on the cruise!
How cool is that?
On Sunday 9/23 about 100 knitters set sail on a 3 hour cruise (cue:Gilligan's Island theme song) up the Hudson River. The event was sponsored by Cornwall Yarn Shop with a little help from Plymouth Yarn, and a good time was had by all. I signed some books, met some nice people, saw some friends, knit on some socks, and generally had a lovely afternoon. There were even snacks and booze, but I didn't partake of either since I was running around playing instead.
My new pattern for Plymouth is out - the pile of beige spaghetti I showed here a few weeks ago is now a lovely shawl pattern in their new Buckingham yarn. Not to sound like a commercial but I love that stuff - 80% baby alpaca/20% silk fingering weight. SO soft and easy to work with. I will scan it and show you the picture tomorrow - right now I have to get ready for my event in Marlton NJ tonight at the Borders on Route 73. Did I mention that my 6th grade English teacher is coming? He doesn't knit, but he read the whole book just because I wrote it. I think that is the coolest thing - teachers rock!
