I spent my WWKIP in Bryant Park in NYC promoting my 1200 TEAny Hats project. I sold the bejesus out of it–and it worked. Here are some of the knitters who stopped by and cast on:
My Juneathon activity for today consisted of: driving into NYC (12 miles), finding parking (several blocks) and walking from said parking garage to Bryant Park (12 short blocks, round trip).
Although my running activity level is paltry, I’d like to defend myself (and give a plug to running as a fitness activity): if it weren’t for running, I would have been completely exhausted by the end of today. 24 hours with 14 8-year olds, followed by traffic-y drive into the city, a long afternoon of instructive knitting (don’t ever underestimate the energy it takes to cheerfully work with complete and klutzy strangers), and a traffic-y drive out of the city while dodging Puerto Rican day celebrants should be an olympic event. And I’d win at least the bronze medal. Because after arriving home and treating myself to a cold IPA, I am READY. FOR. MORE! (and a run, hopefully, tomorrow!)
