Between Shows

Last weekend was Stitches United in Hartford, Connecticut.  What a great time!  I got to see lots of friends, had some great laughs, some good food and shared some knitting time.  I spent the majority of my time in my booth.  

When I am at a show, I don't post or blog.  I don't have the energy or the time, especially at Stitches Events.  There is so much to do to prepare for market.  The subsequent days are spent working and the evenings are FULL of events for Vendors, Students, and Attendees.  Every evening is busy with crafting fun until the wee hours.  I get to see wonderful people, friends and business associates.  I should probably take pictures and share, but alas, phone batteries only last so long.

Since I was in the neighborhood (being in the New England area), I decided to stop in NYC and visit my middle son.  Yesterday we took the day off and went around the city.  

We walked across the Brooklyn Bridge. 

 

We visited the Wall Street Bull & the little girl. The bull was so crowded that I couldn't get a good picture. The little girl was easy to get a picture.   

 

 We walked the Highline. This is a beautiful park setting on some retired elevated tracks.

 

We had lunch in Williamsburg. We found a cute little pub called "AllsWell".  

 

Then finally we chilled for a bit in Prospect Park.  

It was a great day.  I don't get to see my middle son very often and I love being with him.  We can just sit together and 'be', we don't have to talk or do things.  We can just 'be'.  

But now, I am back to work.  I head down to MD by train and meet up with the Buffalo Wool Co in Miss Betsy.  

So, tomorrow we set up in the Upper Corral of Maryland Sheep & Wool festival.  Rain is predicted, so Miss Betsy will be there in all of her (wet) glory.  

Come by and say "Hello!" if you are in the area.

It is very liberating to rip out projects that you do not love.  Don't let a project persuade you into keeping it, just because you have worked on it for a time.

Sometimes, matching up pattern and yarn doesn't go nearly as smoothly as you think it should.
