|It all starts here|
My journey up to the Men's Spring Knitting Retreat was kinda fun; I took four buses each way, and while no bad accidents occured, we did get into a small accident (I believe it was not our driver's fault) just as we entered Manhattan. The result was that we ended up walking the few remaining blocks to Penn Station, rather than wait for police to come to the scene. It turned out that I needn't have hurried; my connecting bus trip was over an hour late. I was very happy to be a knitter.
|Waiting in the bus queue in NYC|
The trip from NYC to Albany was well worth the wait. Not many people rode that particular trip, so I ended up picking a set of four seats arranged around a desk, all to myself. With the free wi-fi on the bus, I was able to get some mad work done in preparing for my class. And all that for one dollar! Woot!
|Welcome to my "Office"|
The shawl I'm working on is Stephen West's Transatlantic; I thought it only fair to cast on while I traveled, and use it as a traveling project. Even the yarn choices ended up having significance, as one of them comes from Trumpet Hill yarns and the other comes from Hedgehog Fibres in Ireland (and I only know about her work because of Stephen West). I'll have to show how it turns out soon.
Suffice it to say that I arrived in good form in Albany, where I was greeted by dear faces and whisked off to Trumpet Hill Fine Yarns and Accents, where I'd be teaching that night's workshop. But that's another story...
