A needle in a haystack...

...or a bobby pin in my bag!

Happy New Year! Looking at other peoples' blogs, it seems like a lot of people had a rough 2009! Here's to a happy, healthy 2010!!!

We started off the new year by heading down to New York City for a great dinner and a show at the Blue Note Jazz Club to see Chris Botti! We took the train, which gave me plenty of time to knit, of course. I took my nice bright blue Malabrigo with me and the pattern for the Amanda Hat (Rav link). I tried to make the Koolhaas Hat (Rl) with it, but after two or three unsuccessful attempts, I decided to cut my losses and try something else. How liberating.

At the end of the hat, I realized I did not have any tapestry needles with me to weave in my ends! I really wanted to wear my hat off the train because it was snowing in Boston, so I had to use my MacGyver skills and figure something out. I rummaged around in my purse and found my new tool:

That's a bobby pin. Don't leave home without it.
