Family Visit + New York Heat Wave

I don't think I've ever been so happy to pull out my fleece in June as I was when I returned from NYC today! The hubby and I spent the past few days visiting family in NYC! It was quite the fun trip, however, weatherchannel.com failed to mention the HEAT WAVE that hit while we were there! I've never been so hot and miserable in my life! I truly do appreciate how wonderful/beautiful the weather is here in the West!

We got to see and do lots of fun things, but the thing I loved most about this trip was that it turns out one of my dearest friends Sara was in town at the same time! We hooked up and spent Saturday walking around Soho, the Village and Times Square! Despite the heat, we had a fabulous day! She went with me to Purl and Purl Patchwork! Here are some pics of the trip!
Outside of Purl
Me with my new yarn two skeins of Organik in Coral Reef. It's so soft and pretty.
Hmm...is Sara thinking of coming over to the way of the wool?A wall decoration at Purl Patchwork - a very cute fabric shop!

View from a hiking trail in the Hudson Valley...can't remember where, but it was really hot that day!We were able to take in a Yankees game in Yankee Stadium. This is the last year for this stadium so it was fun to catch the game. However, this was on Monday, one of the most miserable days of the heat wave! I can't even begin to describe the agony that was the heat and humidity....and really, I'm trying to block that portion of the trip out of my head!

Yay! I had so much fun seeing your in NYC. Like my blog said, it has been a long, long, long time since we have Meg and Sara-ed it around! It really was so much fun! And the fact that I let you take a back-side picture for your blog is even more evidence of our friendship! -S

Meg,

I'm so glad you stopped by my blog. I've come over here for a visit several times to see what you are knitting. You talented yarn girls make me envious. You can teach me to knit, Jen can teach me to crochet, and I'll teach you how to sew.

Congrats on your FIRST year!!

I'm so envious that you got to go the Purl shops. I love that blog and all the freebie patterns and beautiful fabrics they have. So cute.

Congrats on your FIRST year of married life!!
