Progress on many fronts!
1. I am on the second section of my blue
checkered textured blanket
2. I went to NYC yesterday with my red cart
and it was much better than last time,
when I was just weary and in great need of my
trusty red cart!
3. I found this book for 2 Dollars at the Strand!
In hardcover with dust jacket.
I've been enjoying it; I read some of it before
at one of my literature reading fantastic cooking friends places...
I found some other books too but will wait to share those later on, DV!
So here's the blanket progress:
First section is done
and I am almost done with the first square of section two!
(Sorry for less than brilliant sunny pictures;
took at night and with my phone as
my camera cards are full, the new one is in the mail,
I still have to copy all my still-on-the-now-full-memory-cards
pictures to my computer /
eternal hard drive to back them up,
which means no camera!)
I am still reading
and it is getting quite interesting;
kind of spy-intrigue like right now,
which now that I think of it,
is not surprising but I did not expect it.
I am excited to finish reading this and
to get more work on my blanket done;
I did get some knitting done on the weekend,
which was great and hope to do more this coming weekend!
I was so happy to see Madeleine L'Engle's
Wrinkle in Time being displayed
at the Strand :)
I also discovered that
there is a British tea place
fairly near to Mr. Husband's work...
but I did not go in...
They had a bunch of rules and
one was that a 12.50 minimum order was expected.
Well, I wanted tea only so did not go in;
I had an excellent lunch with Mr. Husband
(including a vegan cauliflower soup with cumin and coconut milk
if I remember right; it was good!)
and did not need to spend money unnecessarily.
But I may go back after Great Lent with a friend...
the one who crochets, sews and is willing to teach me
how to sew and quilt.
If that alone does not warrant a lunch at a nice tea place,
well what does?! :)
Loving my reading, knitting &
living to tell the tale of a day in NYC.
What are you reading and creating?
Any new tales to tell?
