A rainy day in Brooklyn

First really rainy day in ages. Boo and I were on a mission, despite the rain, to go to Purl Soho (www.purlsoho.com) to pick up the yarn for my next project – a commission for two sweaters for two four year olds. Of course, it’s out of stock and I had to order it from the website, but it is always wonderful going into Purl. Bertie really enjoys going over the Manhattan Bridge, so we took the D and then, upon returning to the Slope, I bumped into a fellow kiwi that I haven’t seen for ages. Always great to bump into kiwis – I seem to know less of them than before – New York is a place to people seem to move on from; usually without much warning.

I have also managed to finally finish the Brooklyn Map cushion today. Great as it’s my mother’s birthday tomorrow (happy birthday Mum!!) and I can send it off to her (it will be late, but that’s how it is when you have three kids). I now only have Ms. McB’s cushion to finish and B’s quilt. I have cut out some more leaves and will start pinning them tonight. Still undecided as to how to do the back. It’s so great having a creative, fluid process with these projects, as I enjoy¬†mulling over all the different options – so many posibilities.

The kids and I made chocolate chip cookies when we got home (Moo’s suggestion). Delicious, as always. I also made Moroccan Chicken for dinner, which was surprisingly delicious. Boo and I really enjoyed it. Roo enjoyed the chickpeas and Moo ate rice with soya sauce – aahh well…
