Weekend Fun

On Saturday, Georgia and I went to a Fancy Nancy party at the Borders at Columbus Circle. Unfortunately, our train was running local and we got there for the tail end of the party, but Georgia was happy because the Time Warner Center had its pretty color changing stars hung, and those are her favorite.

Then we walked across the southern edge of Central Park to FAO Schwartz. Central Park was beautiful. Wish you were here, J. (also, Georgia knew already how to get to FAO from Columbus Circle. She's got that part of Manhattan well mapped out in her head.)

On Sunday we went to see the Rockettes. It was an amazing show, and completely over the top. The absolute best part of it was watching Georgia. Her expression when Santa and the little boy started to fly was priceless. And she adored the Rockettes. Bruce and I were completely overwhelmed at the end of the show. Although despite being overwhelmed, we still managed to sneak in quite a few snarky comments. We just can't help ourselves.
Here's the lobby and the theater. Again, taking photos in low light with the camera phone doesn't work all that well.

Believe it or not, I got a TON of work done on both Bruce's (Terry's Pullover) and Ella's (Featherweight Cardigan) sweaters. I had to slow down on Bruce's, because I'm not going to be able to move on to the sleeves until the needles I ordered from Knit Picks come in. Again, the pictures of both will be totally boring. Sorry.
I also started on the Herbivore, which in true Virginia fashion, I have now knitted and ripped out the first 20 rows four times. I ripped out and reknitted the first few rows this morning, but I screwed up AGAIN, so I'm going to have to go back and redo. However the yarn is a really pretty color and I'm enjoying knitting with it. Once I get enough of the pattern done so that it doesn't look like a hot mess, I'll post photos.


  1. How are your insulin levels, honey?

    Was it sugary sweet? Well, does a Rockette purge in the dressing room?

  2. i love those colorful stars!

    the little town we live in is a far cry from the big city you live in - it's so interesting to have peeks into other people's lives.

  3. Oh, your pictures make me miss NYC in the fall - always my favorite time in the city. I love your pics of the stars, just gorgeous!

  4. Love your photos - those stars are very special. And your shots of Central Park - how I'd love to visit NYC - one day! Yes, Jeff Buckley is one of my absolute faves, one of the MAJOR regrets of my life is never getting to see him live :{ Thankfully youtube provides ample fixes ... Thanks for visiting my blog, lovely to see your world.

  5. Hey Virginia! Thanks for the visit and the comment on my Fashion Forward today! I hope we'll see you again sometime x

  6. "She's got that part of Manhattan well mapped out in her head." A girl after my own heart...I gotta get up there to hang with her SOON! and the pics of the stars? a-m-a-z-i-n-g!!
