We're here finally in NYC!
It's Sat 7.50am (Mel 11.50pm) and we're getting ready to go out for the whole day to see the Xmas decorations in shops, and eat eat eat! We got in late last nite and grab something quick to eat. We've stocked ourselves with winter woolies but it's not that cold yet. And we should have brought umbrellas as it will be raining for most days. Adding that to the shopping list!
It took us 48hrs to get here due to engine troubles and lay overs to get us on to the next flight that wasn't overbooked.
But we made it!

After being on a yarn stash diet, I was hankering for some Optim wool. It's the softest 100% merino I have ever touched/felt and Celia had some at her Etsy shop.
And I did - I think I bought what she had :).
While yarn shopping (can a knitter ever stop at one hank/skein/ball?), I decided to get a ball of alpaca and winder too.
Top row: Small Winder
Second row L to R: lovely stitch markers (Thank you, Celia!), Optim Blue and Optim Pink.
Third RowL to R: 100% Merino RED RED handspun by Celia (look at that RED!), Peachy Alpaca and more Optim Rover.
Now what will I do with all these goodies :p

Amidst the Christmas shopping rush, I saw this while queuing at a bookstore. I had to have it. The fruits of my bonsai labour are just taking too long (old bonsai post below).
