Before talking about THE DAY KNITTERS OVERTOOK NYC, I drop down on my knees and ask forgiveness for not posting any adorable adoptable bunny photos yet. I searched my bags and realized I left the card reader and the camera at home. Sorry! I do have one photo of Caesar begging for food. I am tempted to turn it into a button or icon. I think it is THAT cute! Also, I give you a nice Saturday morning Sky in Stamford, CT. It is not as cute and cuddly, but it will have to do.
Thursday proved to be a rough early morning for us, but Guido and I made the 5:41 express from Stamford to Grand Central. An hour later than desired, we hoped to get to the Today Show on time. After settling my now “bright-eyed and bushy-tailed” self to pipe down a notch, Guido quietly and quickly began knitting up something in garter stitch to be seen on the show. Continuing to stand, he churned the thick variegated yarn on large needles into a pretty garter-stitch scarf. I opted to stay seated and began writing this post. Well okay, I slept a little during the 45 minute train ride, but this much was written.
With not enough time to drop off the goodie bags for Stephanie and Jayme, Guido and I trudged over to Rockefeller Center. We saw that no one was around the fenced in area and became elated. Asking one of the NBC workers where we had to go to get in, he pointed down to a street corner. Our happiness was smashed to bits when we saw the HUGE line that seemed to never end. Luckily for us, while we were walking towards the back of the line, we met up with Kathy Gormley (the hats coordinator) and Chris Morgan from Woolybuns. For those who have seen our little stint, Chris was the one who had the “Harlot’s Horde” poster next to our banner. The four of us were able to get in a find a spot. Other knitters — Dale, Marni, Jenn, Pam, and Deborah — soon joined us in the fun.
Coming up in the next post — Whole Foods and maybe Strawberry Fields (if I am not tired!) =:8
Edit: Like my new look? It was time for a change. After all, it IS spring!
