The Secret Blue Thing

Chris and I are heading to New York City for the weekend to see friends, visit the Russian Baths, go to Coney Island before it is turned to Disneyland next year, and, perhaps, I may just go to Purl Soho. In light of the giant bag from Webs, it may not be a good idea. I will be returning to New York in October with my mom, and hopefully I'll have knit through some serious stash by then!In the meantime, I'm working on something for someone who often reads this blog. It is made from lovely blue Rowan Calmer and is a very fast project. It will follow me on my trip and may even be finished on the bus. That's Chris waiting to head out on a bike ride while I photograph the Blue Thing.

Happy Labor Day, everyone! Remember those who came before and gave us the 40-hour week!

"Labor Day differs in every essential way from the other holidays of the year in any country," said Samuel Gompers, founder and longtime president of the American Federation of Labor. "All other holidays are in a more or less degree connected with conflicts and battles of man's prowess over man, of strife and discord for greed and power, of glories achieved by one nation over another. Labor devoted to no man, living or dead, to no sect, race, or nation." See the webpage for more!

I can't wait to see what the secret project is, that color certainly is lovely. Have a great time in NYC!

Thank you for the Gompers' quote. It gave me pause, and it deepened my appreciation for this day. The blue is stunning--perfect for silvery-blond hair, I think. Hmmmmm.
