Vicariously knitting

These pics taken as I walked past a nice warm looking knit-in at a shop somewhere.. um...Lower East side? in Manhattan on recent very fun trip to NY. At the time I think we were power walking our way to wards a gig, but a teensy part of me wished I could join these ladies instead for some groovy intercontinental knitting and perhaps a cup of tea.

Creative winter workshops

Thought some of you might be interested in these. Sally is amazing, really patient and grounded, sets up a great space for play and remembering what's important to you. She has a background in art therapy but is also trained as a career counselor and is a practicing artist herself. Imagine her workshops would be a great way to refresh and refocus.
