Mystery Airport Knitter of the Week!

During my recent travels, I spotted this behind some suitcases:

It looks like she's knitting a scarf. I forgot where she was traveling. Perhaps it was to a chilly clime, and she was racing to get it done before she landed.

And, would you believe that I'm a day away from traveling again myself? I'm headed back down to NYC tomorrow afternoon. Like every other knitter in the Northeast I'll try to get into FIT to see The Harlot on Thursday evening. [Just so you know, I didn't make special plans to fly to NY to do this; I need to be in NYC on Friday, and once I heard about this event, I decided to back up my plans by one day.] and Stephanie, true to form, not only decided to have a book launch, but to turn it into an all-day, city-wide event involving just about every knitter in the land. Unfortunately, due to when I'm traveling tomorrow, I'm going to miss everything: the Today Show representing, the sock-photo representing, and the yarn crawling (my checking account and yarn box are heaving huge sighs of relief). If 50 gazillion knitters arrive before me at FIT, I'll even miss Stephanie. That's okay. Instead of reserving a spot ahead, I decided to take my chances tomorrow afternoon. If I get in, great. If I don't, I know where else to go.

 

all that time in NY. Not only should you be saying chutzpah, you should be adding "shmutz", "putz" and "oy". While having a bagel and a schmear.....

I'm not going on Thursday- they'll be pleanty of other knitters to represent. I'll see you on Friday and I'm very much looking forward to that. Hope Sven had a nice birthday.

Have a great trip! Good luck getting to see the Harlot!

Thanks for the heads up about the Today show. I'll be sure to TIVO it.

Good luck getting in to see the Harlot! Happy travels!

I hope you get in!

Every time I see someone KIP and I am too, I try to flag them down with whatever I'm knitting. Usually they ignore me- so embarrassing! One of these days they'll smile back.

Cool! I am going down on Thursday, but I didn't presign up for anything. I figured I'd take the chance to explore and what not.

Have you been to the 'Freeze Peach' event before?

Sorry about the extra comment. Doh!

Yeah, I'd like to make it down to the meetup but I just can't summon the energy for two NY trips in one week.

Hope it's fun, whatever you do!

Have fun, good luck not hemmorraging ca$h in the city. Every visit always sets me way, way back!!

Enjoy your trip - Astoria was my old stomping ground. It is a great neighborhood. Glad to hear that there is a knit-scene going on there now.

Ooo, have fun and have some for me too! I couldn't work the logistics, but it sounds like it's going to be a fantastic experience.
