As a belated anniversary present, my husband and I took a quick trip to New York City this past weekend.
We had a lovely time, walking and shopping and eating, visiting museums and seeing a Broadway show (Warhorse!) and even hitting up some yarn shops - Knitty City and The Yarn Company.
A real highlight was this view from the top of the Empire State Building.

And then we came back to catch the last game of Youngest Child's outside Mite's hockey tournament.

It was just such a wonderful juxtaposition of winter experiences.
I am starting another project that is a juxtaposition of sorts - the Teknika conductive thread glove pattern from Knitty.com. The pattern calls for a solid yarn and a crazy, multi colored yarn and these are my picks:
|CascadeYarn's Heritage sock yarn in mustard|
|Schoppel Wolle's Crazy Zauberball #1701|
Yes, I'm still thinking about a Drapey Tam for Oldest Daughter and I really just need to tidy up some finishing on my Turn of the Glass cardigan but this just looks lively and fun! Now, remind me of that in about a month!
