I was inspired to try to knit socks again and now I just can't stop.
Even her regular readers and friends have given me a shout out in the comments. Lorena you have been a joy to spoil. you will now see my comments with my name. Yeah!
2. List your favorite double-point needle brands, including size and length. Or would you prefer circulars? I love my Crystal Place bamboo size 3.
3. Would you like to try a new brand needle? If so, which brand? Size? Length?
I would love to try some wood ones, size 2 or 3. I like the short ones.
4. If you are a RAVENCLAW, do you prefer the colors in the film or the book? Do you have a strong preference? I am not but I like the books best myself.
5. Do you have any allergies?
I love to try new things so if you have a favorite something for me to try, bring it on!

I have sent my last box out to my pal and she should get it on Tuesday. I hope she likes everything. I sent her somethings I love as well as some stuff I know she will like. I wanted to send somethings that showed who I was and what I do. I will post a link to her on Tuesday so my 3 readers can meet her too. She has been blogging a long time and is very funny. You will love her.
HSKS matches will go out tomorrow. I can't wait to get started. I will have to take a break from knitting to read the last Harry Potter book. Anyone as excited as I am?

On the last day we went to Coors Field to see the Rockies Beat the Yankees. MG wanted a Rockies Foam Finger and a Yankees flag. MB was very tired. He wouldn't sit still for the longest time and then just wanted to be carried. We meet up with Uncle Joe and Aunt Cathi. Everyone had a great time. The game was a Fathers Day gift for Hubby. I think he wanted to stay longer but MB was done in and we had to leave sometime around the 6th inning. Our seats were above the purple line that shows 1 mile above sea level. A bit of a climb but the view of the field was really very good. The place was packed.

I spent a lot of Sunday finding a knitting cafe I had found on line, having lunch (yum)and buying yarn. There will be more on this next time. Sunday night I met a friend for dinner At Mustang Sally's on W 28th ST. The food was good and so was the wine. We talked, ate, drank wine and made ourselves merry for a while. Sunday was a good New York day.
Monday it rained. A lot. All day. It was not raining when I left the hotel to walk to NYU (about 20 minutes). I got wet. Oh well shit happens. The day was filled with dealer stuff and products that I sell everyday. I new cool thing but kinda boring. I had dinner with 3 gals from the dealer and they paid. It was lovely. They were going to a show I didn't want to see so I walked to Times square and got a ticket to Spamlot for the next night. A pretty good New York day.
Tuesday the weather was perfect. A lovely walk to NYU and another day of stuff. A nice dinner with some folks from Chicago. Then a Broadway show. I loved it. There is no place like Broadway. The sheer mass of humanity is a thing to behold. I saw people from all over the world, all in awe of each other and the city around them. I had a about an hour to wonder around Times Square and take it in. I didn't take a lot of pictures I just took it in. I loved every minute of it was entertaining. A street vendor asked me how I was:
"fine" I say
" I know you're fine Baby I asked how you doing"
Gotta love that.
I gotta tell you this is the funniest show I have seen in a long time. I laughed so hard I cried. If you are a Monty Python fan like myself you must see this show. You won't be sorry. You will find your self in the room with John Cleese for every performance. You will meet The Black Knight, Not Dead Fred, Prince Hubert, and Tim the Enchanter along with all of the Knight of the round table and the King himself. I could go on and on but you will just have to get there.
All in all a good trip. There will be knitting soon...
