I'm almost afraid to block it since it fits so well. Next photo will be the blocked beauty.

With a million apologies to my high school French teacher, the Tammy sweater (Vine Yoke Cardigan) is finished, except for sewing on the buttons.

The weather man was wrong. It didn't clear up in the afternoon. It became a steady downpour, but it was warm. In my youth, I may have enjoyed dancing in the puddles. I have become a grumpy old gal though. I still love NYC. Nothing like spending some time at John's Pizzaria to brighten up the spirits. Works every time.

I'm looking for places to go tomorrow...Somehow, I fell into this blog called Knit Your Socks Off. Good stuff. There are reviews of all the yarn shops in NYC and surrounding areas. So, much as I love Manhattan, I may be taking the subway to Brooklyn to check out The Yarn Tree. It will be an adventure of sorts, but I absolutely love Brooklyn and, if the weather cooperates, may be walking the Brooklyn Bridge, instead of the subway. Yarn Tree opens at noon, so there will actually be time to bask in Manhattan first. Visit Mary, see more yarn places. It's all good.
Almost forgot in my euphoric state to mention the Shibory. It's calling me. I guess I have to find out more about it when I visit The Yarn Tree.. Education is never wasted.

Saturday is coming and, with it, a promise of a trip to my favorite city. The tree will have arrived in Rock Center, maybe the street vendors will provide that wonderful smell of roasting nuts...not sure if the Christmas tree vendors will be set up and ready to go yet. I sure hope not...but, ohhhh, the smell of the evergreens is awesome.

I had to go back to the Art on the Farm this afternoon, this time with dear Ken. I was on a mission...to get a picture of some pie.

What a beautiful day to spend in a barn, sipping hot cider, seeing tons of art venues...yes, there was a spinner and a weaver...and Phil the Potter had yarn bowls to hold your ball o'yarn while you knit. Rachel's Creperie was on hand in the food barn, along with many tempting desserts....there were pies too.
