A Message?

We recently traveled to New York City and Washington, D.C. This was on the wall in our room in our hotel in New York, the Hilton Fashion District. I do not know if this saying is in every room (I hope not) but I am glad it was in ours.

In case you cannot read it, it says: “Knitting is very conducive to thought. It is nice to knit a while, put down the needles, write a while, then take up the sock again.” — Dorothy Day.

Good advice.

We spent a lot of time walking around New York, and I had the sore feet to prove it. Visited two yarn stores that were worth the sore feet: School Products and Purl Soho. Very different stores, but each a pleasure in its own way.

Then on to Washington, D.C., and Looped Yarn Works, only a few blocks from our hotel. How fortunate is that? I only wish I had more time to sit and knit a while.

But I am glad to be back home.
