New York, New York

Well as you might imagine, attending a knitting conference with a good friend in New York City is officially a good way to spend time. Add a little dusting of snow to the occasion and it is truly excellent. As seen from my hotel (Hilton 51st and 6th)






In this mornings class I met Daniella who was both incredibly talented and sweet, oh and beautiful.





She owns Maschenkunst, a yarn store in Koln Germany which just happens to be around the corner from Bonn where I will visit in October. I will definitely be making a visit.

Then at lunch I had the wonderful pleasure of listening to the knitting humor and wisdom of Stephanie Pearl McPhee giving her talk 'this is your brain on knitting.'






Should you ever have the opportunity she is a very engaging speaker.

Glad you're having a great time.

Is there an equivalent of the beader's handshake in the knitting world?
