We got cable!

Well, look at that. I did not forget the cable! My sil specifically chose this nifty "XO" cable (straight out of the Vogue Knitting book).
I'd like to give a thumbs up to Ann Budd's Handy Book of Patterns. So much easier to follow a pattern than to calculate everything yourself...
(And a thumbs up to everyone's suggestion of having a drink. It helped. I should turn to you for advice more often).

I went to the MoMA this weekend. I took lots of pictures and realized, once I was home, that there is nothing more boring and unoriginal than rectangular pictures of rectangular paintings. And hey, you can buy the poster at the gift shop! Duh. However, I was entertained by all the children in the museum and their reaction to art.
One piece of art was perplexing to us: it is a black acrylic rug (obviously, I'm missing something. Let me know if you can figure it out, ok?). This little girl stared at it for a long time, then made a dash for it. Ah, breaking all the rules, at such a young age...

These 2 little boys had *many* questions in the Jackson Pollock room. (I wish I could've overheard their father's explanations. And the kids' reaction to the concept of "Action painting". Were they dying to go home and try it?)
