Back To Normal

I had such a lovely, yarn-filled spring break with my daughter. It's so nice to share an interest like knitting with her. I feel very fortunate.

As I alluded to on my last post, I spent some time at the Union Square Green Market. I met Steve, Melissa, and Stephanie there Saturday morning; they had ridden the overnight bus to Chinatown.

Steve was in his glory, although he would have really loved it more if he could have had the plants shipped to him!


One of the other places we visited was the New York Public Library on 5th and 42nd. I just love those iconic lions.



I spent a little time sitting at the tables on the patio and working on the Hitchhiker Shawl.


The String Theory yarn I'm using is perfect for this project, don't you agree?


I didn't get home until 9:00 p.m. Sunday night, so needless to say, I was quite tired Monday morning when I headed into work. Luckily, I had planned a semi-quiet day for the first day back, so that was nice. Sometimes after breaks, the students are kind of tired when they return, but not this time! They were all quite talkative and energetic! It was worth it though; I haven't had such a good spring break since, well, last spring break! I'm hoping my feeling of renewal lasts until June!



  1. I definitely agree with your remarks about your yarn choice for Hitchhiker. What a fun scarf to make and to wear. Loved your holiday pics--almost (but not quite) as good as travelling with you.

  2. So glad you had such a wonderful time. The shawl is looking fantastic.

  3. I may have to go get some string theory yarn...your shawl is gorgeous.

  4. You're right: perfect yarn for that project.

    I continue to be jealous of your knitting daughter!
