Well, I went outside of my apartment for the first time at 8:30 tonight! My furniture finally arrived yesterday. But I am up to my ears in boxes and realizing that moving to New York is going to require some more downsizing. But in the midst of unpacking today, the TV guys came and set up my TV access. The cats are really freaked out by all the boxes. And I had to make a path to the litter box for them.
But before the moving truck finally arrived, I did make it to several knit shops here in New York. On Tuesday, after a quick jaunt to Lush, I went to School Products. They have a lot of great cashmere, but I managed to only spend $12.50 on some lace yarn. Then I went to Knit New York, a great cafe and knit shop. I was longing for a place to sit and knit, so I took advantage of the cafe, got some water and a treat and knit on my sock. (I still to take a picture and show it to you, but that will have to wait til things are all put away here.) I also bought a sack to carry the sock in. It is purple, and nylon, so it will keep it clean. I love it.
Then yesterday, in the midst of unpaking some of my boxes, Ashley called and reminded me that Suss is closing their New York store. So I went, and bought 8 skeins of their coolaid yarn in black – think it will make a great sweater – and some Lorna’s laces angel in white! And all for a great price. I bought some gifts too, but I can’t talk about those, cause the giftee won’t be surprised.
So today I unpacked and put things away all day. I do believe that my stash arrived without blemish. But I can’t say the same for everything. But I won’t bore you with the details.
So still not much knitting, although their has been some stash enhancement.Â More soon.
