Sorry for such a long absence. After a year of planning we are on our USA holiday. First stop was New York, and wow, what a city. Words can't describe the hectic pace of life here, so different to my quiet country town. Our first adventure was crazy, a race from the airport to the hotel, to see Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden (we left the boys at the hotel). Other highlights would have to be top of the Rockefeller Centre, Central Park, ice skating and all the wonderful Christmas trees and decorations. They really know how to decorate here. There was snow on the ground when we arrived, but it didn't actually snow while we were there. It was cold enough though, barely getting above zero the first few days. Thank goodness for my woolly socks!




I loved this giant button and needle in the garment district.


I was very pleased to knit my way across the Pacific Ocean. I took bamboo dpn's that I could bear to lose. After knitting from NY to San Francisco, they may even be finished before I get home........not that I'll need them for a few months.

I am looking forward to opening my SSCS gift when I get home. Apologies to my poor partner who is probably waiting to hear of its safe arrival. 

Back soon,

Up up and away

After a year in the planning we are heading off on our American adventure today. Unfortunately my Secret Santa hasn't arrived, so I won't be able to email you until I return in the New Year. 

It has been quite odd not buying gifts or sending Christmas cards. Apart from SSCS, this little pouch is the only gift I made for a secret Santa at work. Such a cute little fox.


Last pair of socks finished up. I'm taking my woolly knitted socks to the northern hemisphere winter.......I think I'll need them! There is a lot more blue and teal than the camera would capture. 


Wishing you all a happy and safe Christmas.

Happy stitching,
Susan x
