A day late


This morning I was welcomed into the new day with bright rays of sunshine! I smiled and thought to myself: "December made a moody entry but look at its happy energy now..."

A good day to head into the city and visit a yarn shop where there are friendly people, a thousand balls of colorful yarn and needles clicking away.

Off to Knitty City I went, feeling good, not feeling stressed at all because I was on schedule with my production knitting and designing.

A good day for a stroll on the Upper West Side, a hazelnut latte and just relax a bit. 

A day late and a pair of hands too short


I hadn't been in Knitty City for a little while and it felt so good when Christina and Jennifer greeted me warmly asking me where I have been. I blamed my lack of frequent visits on production knitting and the ladies nodded their heads and told me that they know how much work that is.

After a little bit of chatting, I browsed all the shelves, touched yarn, marveled over the many beautiful colors and just had a ball. Pun intended.


I sat down and knitted away while admiring all the beautiful finished projects that were proudly worn on the back of knitters. A little bit of chatting here, a little bit of ooh-ing and aah-ing over some yarn with a fellow knitter, my my how I love hanging out a yarn shop.


Since I was right on schedule and even a bit ahead of my working schedule, I decided to stay somewhat longer. See, I had such a good time...

And then I had a rude awakening... a group of ladies came in and I asked them if they come together every Wednesday at Knitty City. One of them replied: "Wednesday's? You must be off a day... it is Thursday today."

She said it so nonchalantly but her remark made me freeze for a split second... Uh oh. I am a day off! 

I took a deep breath, kept my cool, and took another sip of my delicious hazelnut latte. 

Oi vey. I am not ahead of schedule... I am behind schedule!!! It's going to be a long night of knitting...

So, dear reader, you might well understand that this is going to be a short blog post. I am a day too late and a pair of hands too short!

Thank you for reading and until the next entry...


I am a day late too

Oh, I went there this afternoon. But I didn't have a lot of time to look around this time.

Hi Patricia! Yup, I will just have fun with it :) A cup of coffe at 11pm in the evening will get me going for another hour or two, hahaha!

I could feel the panic along

I could feel the panic along with you. So sorry that happened to you, but take a deep breath and relish the relaxed and enjoyable time you had, realizing it was just what you needed for a boost in energy (the caffeine maybe?) to jump ahead in your required knitting. Go, girl! :-)

Judi, taking deep breaths

Judi, taking deep breaths helps a lot! I am knitting away :)
