A Visit to LBYS

A few weeks ago, long before the swelter of summer had set in for good, I hopped the F train and headed into Manhattan for an evening at Lion Brand Yarn Studio.

Before I talked to all the lovely assembled folks about the making of ASTOUNDING KNITS and KNITTING AROUND THE WORLD, I talked to Patty. About the making of ASTOUNDING KNITS and KNITTING AROUND THE WORLD.

Make sure you're sitting in air conditioning to watch it; otherwise, the sight of me wearing long sleeves and a sweater might make you break out in hives.

Where I've Been

The lovely public library in Chatham, NY. Every weekday morning, I drop my daughter at camp, then drive along the lily-strewn fields of the Hudson Valley to get here, where I do things like post this blog, browse the card catalog (!):

and plod along on various manuscripts. For company, I've got this guy, John T. Wheeler, MD one of the original founders of the library:

as well as Fern, Betty, and the children's librarian, Becky:

who has been kind enough to organize a reading of THE HONEYBEE MAN next Thursday at 1:00. Come heckle me if you're nearby!
