On my way to the Debbie Stoller event last night, I got (as per the MTA special) stuck on the subway for nearly two hours. I was a little late to the event.
The positive side of the situation was that I had two uninterrupted hours to finish up Katie's sister's honey cowl and listen to SMODcast (Kevin Smith and Scott Moiser).
Pattern: honey cowl (my rav page) by madelinetosh (rav pattern page)
Yarn: Malabrigo Silky Merino in Cape Cod Gray, two skeins
Needles: US8 (5mm)
So, last night I got to see Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn for the first time (I love going to new places in the city):
See Debbie Stoller pretend to be a knit stitch (she's in the center) with some audience members on stage (terrible lighting, I'm sorry):
Purchased her new book and got her to sign for me, which was REALLY exciting, as I taught myself to knit from the first Stitch n' Bitch book.
AAAAAAAAAAAND, I got to meet OfTroy which was really wonderful. We rode the subway up to Times Square together and talked about books, history of NYC, education and a little knitting.
It was an AWESOME day, and I'm so glad that I got to go to the event. It had a rather small turnout though. I hope the trains didn't prevent people from getting to Brooklyn.
Bruce tried on the honey cowl last night and decided that he wants one as well, so I have three more to churn out. He really likes how it looks like chain mail (as you may have read in his comments) and how he can double it and cover both his face and the back of his head if he needs to. And honestly, it looks great on him.
