I also put Mr. Greenjeans aside for this trip since it was getting to big and bulky for travel and I started this Lace Ribbon Scarf, the pattern is free on Knitty. After many false starts and very emotional froggings I cracked the code of the lace chart and have knit over 20". I'm knitting it in Serendipitous Ewe's Fate Fingering in my exclusive color, Twilight Sky and I'm loving the way its turning out!
We had a wonderful Xmas day, went to see Up in the Air with George Clooney and than over to China Town for dinner. China Town was hopping! We found a crowded restaurant and figured it had to be good since so many people were there and had a delicious meal. We strolled the streets with other out-of-towners doing NY for Xmas and than headed home.
Yesterday we went to Soho to hit some furniture stores. We found a really great store with vintage furniture, clothing and home decor that was selling metal sock molds from the 1960s that were used in factories to create knit socks. No pictures yet, as soon as I get them hung in my office I'll photograph them.
And I have one more story to tell from the Sunday before last, we were shopping at ABC over on Broadway. We did our usual take the elevator up to the top floor than walk down floor by floor.
When we got downstairs she was a head of us and this mother daughter pair stopped, turned around as she went past and said, “That was Uma Thurman!” I had to ask them if it really was and they were 100% sure it was. DH was with me, with his camera and he refused to take a pic of her even though she wouldn’t have seen him do it!
Can you believe I told Uma Thurman she looked like Uma Thurman?!
