The only knitter in the NYC area...

...who DIDN'T go to Rhinebeck, evidently. Boo. Because I was feeling sorry for myself, I started a new sweater in some super-cool yarn:

Pattern: Tangled Yoke Cardigan by Eunny Jang (from Interweave Fall 2007)
Yarn: Rowan Felted Tweed in the "Watery" colorway
Needles: circs in US5, 4 and 0 (I think) and a set of US5 DPNs

Have a long way to go, but it made me feel better. Also bought a great pattern to start on some hats for brothers and husband for Christmas - now need to get some fiber to make them! If you went to Rhinebeck, hope you had a great time - but we had fun here in Hoboken, too!

No time for blogging since we've moved...had tons of travel both for work AND play (Florida, Colorado, Nebraska, back to Florida), and am finally settling in. Been doing a smidge of knitting, nothing picture-worthy yet (surprising, what with all the time on planes and stuff) but have tons of beautiful new yarn and lots of ideas to work with.

In the meantime, I'll leave you with the view along the running path from this side of the Hudson:

It's me who's crooked, not New York City, just in case you were wondering.
