Ashley was on a vacation to the East Coast and managed to meet up with a few bloggers in various cities (maybe more than the three I link in this post, I don’t know); naturally she saved the best for last!
Megan had mentioned how tall Ashley is, but I still wasn’t fully prepared for her height. I am a shrimp compared with her, and I was even wearing my “tall” boots! She helpfully crouched down for this photo.
She’s just as delightful as she is on her blog–and hanging out with her was just like seeing an old friend again. I let her in on New York’s best kept secret–which apparently isn’t a secret at all, based on the length of the line to get in. It’s the burger joint in the lobby of Le Parker Meridian; the burgers are to die for, making the line and the fight for a table worth it.
Ashley and I showed each other the socks currently on our needles–mine a “top-secret” pair that I’m giving to a friend and might further develop into a pattern worth submitting, hers some pink and white self-striping Jaywalkers. Hopefully next time we’ll have more time to hang out and can actually knit together. Our lunch yesterday was perfectly delightful, and put me in the best mood for the day–anticipation before, basking in the happy times for the afternoon.
