Back in NYC – it’s an adjustment and is not quite warm enough to knit outside

Each Wednesday, I take stock of the projects I’m working on, and where my brain is at.  back in NYC

I arrived back in NYC Thursday, and was promptly greeted by snow flurries and ridiculous subway delays – welcome back indeed.

I’m slowly adjusting to being back. Everything is thoroughly familiar, and entirely different; like looking at a familiar landscape through a new lens. Which I guess it is. What is travel if not a way to shake up everything in our brains, and come back to our day-to-day lives with new eyes.

Spring is beginning to come around here, when the sun is shining and the wind isn’t blowing it can be downright warm – not quite knitting in the park warm. I do miss that, and can’t wait till it’s that warm here (though it seems like the Bay Area has been cold & rainy lately, so it sounds like I timed my trip well).

Despite having to knit indoors, I’ve been knitting away on my sweater. Finished the body over the weekend and am knitting my way down the first sleeve.

And if you’re looking for some sort of fibery distraction – I wrote about all 15 yarn & fabric shops I visited on my trip. Sort of like a mini fiber tour of each city, first the San Francisco Bay Area, and then Portland.

So much yarn, so little time.
