Francis, Revisted

It was supposed to be warmer today so I went outside to knit. And I did, despite the fact that it was. not. warm. At all.

Anyway, here are the fruits of my labor:

(just looked at this photo again, and DAMN the light was good today)

Here's a shot of the view from my knitting spot:

With the Statue of Liberty behind it: (yeah, I know, wah wah wah, it was cold, wah, you can see the Statue of Liberty from your knitting spot, quit whining, jeeze!)

Another shot, just because: (that's Staten Island in the background there)

In other news I discovered that I completely screwed up my Damson this weekend, and will have to rip about 30 rows. Amazingly enough, my screwup didn't affect the stitch count. It just looks ugly. Le Sigh.


  1. What a beautiful spot to sit and knit! It could be a little warmer, so you may whine a little. But dang, that view! ;o)

  2. what an amazing spot to sit ... and even though I'm in Australia I was in New York about six months ago and I actually know where you were sitting. That is so exciting (for me of course) because before it was just a place.I'll stop rambling now ... just too amazing.

  3. Ok, I forgot all about knitting when I saw these photos. What a view! Can't belive you actually live in this town, oh my - what a dream!!
    And your knitting looks good too :-)

  4. Don't you just love it when the light is nice? Those pictures are great! It seems as though you knit like the wind! Yes, I believe you do!

  5. Well, today I was definitely knitting *in* the wind...

  6. oh, love! How lucky you are to have the Statue of Liberty within knitting-spot-distance! I finally went to see the fine lady liberty in person last May, and she's even prettier in person. I'd love to explore NYC a bit more...

    I meant to thank you, a looong time ago, for your tips on wearing red lipstick. I am most definitely going to give them a try!


  7. It's funny -- when I look at that shot of Lady Liberty, the first thing I think of is the FRIGID wind that comes off New York harbor. Dress warmly!
