But a single subway stop away--(a half mile or so) and it's a scene of destruction. Downed trees (big old oaks—50 foot tall if they were an inch)—ripped up from the ground, and ripped to shreds. Some lucky blocks—not a car damaged.. Other blocks—not a car intact!
Worse—a tree fell on the Grand Central Parkway—and killed the driver-and left 2 passengers injured.. And 3 lanes of the parkway closed –leaving traffic backed up for miles (and till past 1 AM!)
Me? I was safe and sound in my apartment when the storm hit—Knitting--
A few blank slates—for the Makers Faire Project and one with a knit in message. I took a bunch of scraps (each 12 inch square uses about 75 to 80% of a ball.) 5 squares created enough left overs for a bonus square!
The multi color block is Waste Not, Want Not.. but it can be used a blank slate if you want to come to the Maker's Faire and send your own message to the Universe.
Socks? Untouched for 2 days now.
(a new project started? Because some yarn was crying to be knit into something.. Yeah—but you'll have to wait!)
