how do you choose?

I had the pleasure of taking Hannah Thiessen, the new Creative Director for Premier yarns, on a little excursion tonight. We didn’t have time for much, just a jaunt to Purl, which happens to be near the office. How ever do you choose from all the goodies there (or at any yarn shop)? It’s always nice to be a little ambassador to the city and what it has to offer. I showed her the colorful array there and then the twinkling lights of the city from above…

giving thanks


I’m thankful for this bounty of food, my dearest friends who make up my New York family, and this precious time we can spend together. I love that we’re all taking time out of our week to be with people we love and celebrate food! Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

standard-time

One thing I like about the switch to Standard Time has been how magical the city feels when I leave work at the end of the day. Sure, I see the lights later at night in Daylight Savings, too, but I’ve noticed a restaurant for the first time precisely because it was lit up so invitingly when seen in the dark. The air in the fall is always more crisp, too, making the lights even prettier.

My fabulous web designer started a new website a few months ago, one for offering free desktop wallpapers. One a week, by an artist, whether a photograph or digital art. And this week, the photo is mine! Yes, yes, my web designer is also my boyfriend, but I like to think that my photo stands on its own. Go to www.dsktps.com to download it! Here’s a sneak peek.

second family wedding of the summer!

michael & heather

I did not knit a single stitch for this wedding, and it’s just as well, because the temperature was pushing 100F (37C) and the humidity had to be hovering near, oh, about eight thousand percent. Why yes, we ventured to steamy gross Georgia for a wedding at the beginning of August! This was a cousin on my dad’s side (the wedding earlier this summer was on my mom’s side), who grew up in Georgia and married a good Southern girl.
