Not knitting in NYC

I should have brought some knitting to New York, but I didn't think I'd have any time. It turns out I need something quiet to do every evening after Ross goes to sleep in my sister's (surprisingly spacious) 600-square-foot studio apartment -- where a total of three adults and one child are staying! I could be making some major progress on the Grumperina tank right now. Oh, well...

I plan to visit The Yarn Co., which is just two blocks from Archana's apartment, and Purl in Soho.

A sampling of what we've done since we arrived on Friday afternoon: saw dinosaurs, etc., at the Museum of Natural History; waited two hours (along with many of "my people") to get to the observation deck at the Empire State Building; met some former Raleighites (ex-N&O copy editors Peter Sigal and Kathleen Flynn, who are both at NYT now) for lunch; visited the Bronx Zoo; spent two and a half hours with Andy at MoMA -- sans child and got in free!

Andy and I are off to Princeton, N.J., today on the train for our two-day getaway. We're hoping Princeton will be cool. Archana will take care of Ross; she's got a couple of playdates planned, as well as some paint-your-own pottery and a viewing of "Madagascar."

I'll miss you all at knit night tonight!

We'll miss you, too! Did you see the new Cezanne/Pisarro exhibit at the MOMA? We're going to try to see it when we're in NYC in August.

Enjoy your getaway - children are precious but a little time away can be a very good thing. :)

Yes, we saw that exhibit, Julie. It was good, though some of the other works in MoMA's regular collection blew us away more. Plus, the new building itself was amazingly cool.
