Best Knitting Event Ever!
I just got back from a day long knitting extravaganza in NYC. It’s almost one in the morning and I need to crash soon. But I would love to give you the quick run down and give anyone I met a chance to remind me of their name and knit blog… because now it is all a blur, and I don’t want to forget anyone…
So, Kim and I had a bumpy start. We got to Stamford at 10:30pm and didn’t get to bed until midnight. Although I set my alarm for for 4:00am, I did not wake up until 4:50… oops…
So we were off and we caught the express to Grand central and arrivd at rockefeller center at 6:55, a little later than planned, but we were off.
Good news is that we were not the only knitters who showed up to represent at the Today show. We ran into Kathy and Kris (woolybuns) in the line to get into the plaza where the taping took place. Somehow they let me through with the huge map and some tent poles (so much for the metal detecors). We spent the morning at the Today show hanging out with Kathy, Kris, Marni, Dale, and a lady with a knitted Rodney the knitted rat.. it was awesome. People did stream in as the morning drew on (Pam & Debrah). Can’t wait to see what a goof I look like on t.v. when I get to my tivo on Sunday. If anyone has the video, please post a link to it in the comments
After the show (more on what happened at the show later) we were joined by Jennifer at Whole Foods. It was a great hour and a half to talk…. which was followed by a awesome trp to Harlot in th Park, which was then followed by a trip to the museum (adding on more people, someone from VA who bended Narl, some one from the hamptons, someone from Jersey City, and one last person who I did not get to spend enough time with)
Yeah… this is going well… ok fast forward… School Products… Cashmere (cheap and lots of it)… Habu for some…. FIT… Harlot … Chinese Food… Walk to Grand Central… snooze on train… now
More detail to come over the weekend, but if you ran into me somewhere in those elipses feel free to fill in the blanks….
All and all… My faith in Knitters (from everywhere) is at an all time high. I had great conversations and connections all day long. I was overwhelmed by the love shared by everyone and ……………………………………………..
