New York-sey Part 1

We went to visit Jersey Family over the weekend. Did you know you could rent a Prius? Behold the overly informative display:So you can have up-to-the-second updates on whether you're using battery or gas, 'cuz who wouldn't want to know every single second? There's also a display that gives you a bar graph of gas mileage, which usually hovered around 49 mpg over the course of the trip. Plus it's surprisingly roomy on the inside and very cute on the outside. (BTW, this is exactly the kind of car review you should expect from someone who doesn't drive).

When not mesmerized by the gas-battery update screen, I sewed this up:
It's the Lion Brand Tied Hoodie, sans tassel, for Jersey Baby. I first started this in early summer, quickly finishing all the pieces save for one sleeve. Then Chinese class happened and the whole thing got shoved to the bottom of the to-do list. It's a good thing I made the 24 mo. size, because he just about fits into it right now. See?
Sorry it's hard to get him to sit still.

I went to the Spin Out in Central Park on Saturday. There were spinners galore:While we sat and spun, we got a visit from a wee little turtle:
Isn't he too cute?

Since it's Socktoberfest, I'll try to include a sock in every post this month.
This is the mate to the Stitches West sock that I'm finally getting around to. This shows the inside of the heel flap with the center stitch running down it. I'm about half way down the foot now, so hopefully there'll be a finished sock pic for the next post.

Coming up in New York-sey Part 2: apples, alpacas and automation

The tied hoodie is adorable.

I so wish I could have gone to the spin out, but alas I am destined to stay in Indiana.

The sock is coming along nicely.
