Once upon a time, I was a huge Mets fan.  As a childhood tomboy who was also a bookworm (interesting combo, I know), I was convinced after reading Bums: An Oral History of the Brooklyn Dodgers by Peter Golenbock that to support the Yankees was tantamount to treason.  I was born in Brooklyn, after all.  Besides, my best […]

One of the yarn shops I planned to visit during my trip to Pennsylvania was out of business, so I decided to add another shop to my list. Since I was staying just one train stop away from Swarthmore, I planned a visit to Finely a Knitting Party on my way back to New York. The […]

FO Friday: Mother’s Day Shawl and other fun stuff
14 Comments

Posted by Underground Crafter on May 25, 2012 | Short Link

A few weeks ago, I shared a picture of a pineapple shawl I decided to design and make for my Mom seven days before Mother’s Day.  (Cue up the “What were you thinking??” comments from the peanut gallery.) I wasn’t sure if I would finish it on time, and I didn’t even know if my […]

View Larger Map Last week, I took my dream vacation and spent a few days at Pendle Hill in Wallingford, PA.  The main purpose of the vacation was to relax, enjoy the silence, (wait, what is this?  some kind of retro pop music playlist??), spend some time outdoors, and live an unscheduled life, and what’s […]

22 Comments

Posted by Underground Crafter on May 23, 2012 | Short Link

There’s a fair amount of similarity between last week’s WIP Wednesday/Yarn Along post and today’s post. I took a break from the Pineapple Doily Shawl since I didn’t take it on vacation with me and then promptly forgot to bring it to class with me on Saturday to work on along with my students. My cabled […]

(Join along with me any time if you need a head start or moral support for your holiday crafting. You can read more details here.) I’ve reached the point in life where I’m feeling overwhelmed by stuff.  This might be due to the fact that we’re living in a one-bedroom apartment in New York City, […]
