Knitty cruise!!

I did a little cleaning this morning, packed up a bag, got the child ready and headed out to the city. I left the child with my mother and met up with Tamara. We waited patiently on line with a growing number of knitters while watching the boat rock back and forth at the dock. Shortly afterward, Marymac (Maryann) and alerievay (Valerie) from the Coffeeshop joined us.

We grabbed a table on the upper floor of the boat and proceeded to knit. We had some yummy salmon, salad and quiche, along with some great fizzy lemonade. Some of the girls opted for alcohol with their lemonade, I didn't. I brought Maryann a small gift as a thank you for hosting SP5; note the Barbie bag that the gift came in.

Some pics from the boat (though missing is Heather and Gina, whom I forgot to get pics of):

So many knitters!

That's Jane, Jen and Tamara.

John from the Point and of Pinky fame.

Tamara being silly.

Me and the famous Amy

Looks like everyone had a great time. Too bad there's not a Knitty Hayride or something out here in the wilderness. :-)
Take Care!

Heyyy! This is a shout-out from your west coast crew!

I'm super jealous that I don't live in NYC. Sounds like you had a great time, met up with fun knitty folks, and enjoyed the scenery and fresh air. I'm glad you got to go! :)
