Took a brisk walk on a chilly day to visit The Metropolitan Museum. The kimono exhibit was gorgeous, as I had hoped and expected. I dig the Japanese sense of design. The show featured fabric, variety and innovation, and history if you cared to read the displayed text.
It's there until January 19, 2015.
Once a month, I try to attend IN THE LOOP, a knitting and crocheting club held at the World Financial Center. We focus on projects with a purpose, knitting and crocheting garments and gifts to benefit those in need.
For the past few sessions, I had the pleasure of visiting with my friend while we crocheted. Betty Chen, needlewoman extraordinaire, finished the fingerless gloves with speed and precisions.
I had to take the pattern home to complete mine.
Just mailed them to our club leader, Ina, in NJ, today.
Dear Rebecca, Last night I cuddled up in this sumptuous shawl while I meditated. I sit near a window, so it was great to be able to feel so cozy and warm. I really love the look and feel of this hand-made shawl. Thank you so much for the beautiful and generous gift. I will treasure it, and use it often. Love, Cynthia
