Okay, quick post, no pics, just a note that I'll be in NYC from Wednesday evening to Sunday morning, representing with all the other knitters at the Yarn Harlot's book release. I haven't read any of her books and don't know that I ever will, since all of my for-fun reading is in sci-fi and mystery. But I think the concept of a bunch of knitters and crocheters walking all over the city and making noise is cool. Plus the ticket was real cheap, I always get free room and board in NYC, and it's my spring break.
Plans are being made around the internet, with knitters planning to stand outside the window at the Today Show. I will not be there as getting up at 5:30 to be in front of the window of a show I never watch on my break does not appeal to me, but more power to all of you who are doing it. There will be knitters meeting in Central Park, Strawberry Fields at noon with their socks, and I may or may not be there. There is an exhibit at the Museum of Arts and Design on Radical Lace and Subversive Knitting, and I won't be there, either since I don't get art (though I might be interested in any natural history museum around). But what I will definitely be doing is visiting some yarn stores, and Knit NYC and Seaport Yarn are on the must-visit list. So if anyone wants to tag along on Thursday or Friday to see one of these shops, I am more than happy for the company and someone to talk to about all the pretty yarn. Leave a comment or send me email or PM me on Knittyboard, KnittingHelp, or KnittersReview.
