Amanda asked a good question earlier in the week: How's the subway knitting, Subway Knitter?
My new commute is in two parts. First, coming and going from Astoria I'm on the N or the W train. Knitting on that is cake (mmm, cake) because I get on at the last stop:
See? Few people, many seats.
On the other hand, once I get to Manhattan I change to the 4,5 train (Incidentally, how should I write that? With commas? Slashes? "The four and five?" You hear everyone say "Take the fourfive." But you don't see many of them blogging about it.) I seldom find a seat until Wall Street, and then it's only one more stop until my final destination.*
The 4,5 trains have better air conditioning than the N or the W, and these days that's nothing to shake a (wooden, pointy) stick at. Quite honestly, it has been too hot to knit this week.
Let's hope that The Point is air-conditioned. Today marks my first meeting as an official Spider!
[*To those New Yorkers in the know: yes, I could take the W the entire way if I desired a more knitterly commute. Changing trains saves me time.]
