One Crazy Fiber Lady

Busy pier

July 22nd, 2009 · 14 Comments

Last Thursday saw lots of activity on the piers of the waterfront on the lower east side.

First, on Pier 11, I decided that it was time to show that I actually do still knit.  So after my ferry docked, I delayed my arrival at the office for a picture of the current project.

Yup. ¬†Ballerina is back in active rotation. ¬†Though I shouldn’t really call it rotation because it is the only thing I’m knitting. ¬†Progress has been made beyond this point too. ¬†On the way home and at SnB that night, I finished the raglan shaping and started the short rows necessary for the sleeve. ¬†The back, she is now finis.

I was nearly late for SnB that night as my ferry was late to leave for Hoboken.  There was activity on the pier to the south of us.  That one is a heliport.  We had a distinguished visitor in town.

Sorry for the less than stellar shots. ¬†I was hoping for excellent pictures as the ferry motored past the heliport. ¬†Except the larger ferry, the Sea Streak, took off at the same time and forced us wide. ¬†The lighting was also less than ideal, but I think you get the idea. ¬†There’s Marine One (and the decoy), as well as some pretty big escort choppers. ¬†Cool, eh? ¬†As always you can click to embiggen.

Today is my birthday and I’m having lunch with Kim!

Craft on!

    Happy Birthday! I wish I was there for thai food and knitting too. I’ve given up on my Mermaid ripoff, I’m glad to see that you aren’t giving up on Ballerina.

    Happy belated birthday!
    Hooray for finishing the back on such a big knit! I only have one thing active on the needles too, and I wish I could see some progress.
