The goods in the bag!

It was a really fun night - I went with Dana from the LIC knit group - Melissa (who got her tickets a month before Dana did), was sitting in the row right below us with the Spiders - there was yarn and needles everywhere. The only thing that could have been better was the weather - it was SO FREAKIN' HOT. Seriously it was almost too hot to be outside. I hate the heat.

Yesterday's weather was amazing - the rain early was biblical - I went to drive Robert to the train station and there was a river flowing down my street - the water was up to the first step of my stoop. It finally stopped raining, we checked the Rail and Road Report on NY1 at 7am and the trains were clear, so I dropped Robert off at the M train. He got to Canal St when he had to turn around come home because there was no Q service. I felt really bad for him, by the time he got back it was 10:00 and he looked liked a wilted lettuce leaf!

Just 2 more days left to my vacation - I am so not missing work. If I can manage to stay off Ravelry I might actually get some knitting done.

You have a great picture of the back of my head! (I was wearing a red dress). It was fun meeting you last night :)

What a cool idea! You knitters are so clever. I only wish the weather had been nicer. It is amazingly hot here too.

Wow, you made out great with your take home bag. I went to the Dodgers Stitch n Pitch in LA and my bag was not as full. Check out my May post of my baseball night. I look forward to next year. Hopefully we will get some more vendors. Sorry it was hot, but, wasn't it awesome to see so many people knitting/crocheting at the same time. My hubby was shocked!

I'm so jealous! We don't have stuff like that around here. I don't think we have the population base for it.

It looks like you had a great time! Excellent goody bag.

Have fun on your vacation, and be safe!
