We ride the subway several times each day, in all directions. The crocheters are everywhere on the subway.
Even I've had a go. On Sunday we took the subway out to Coney Island, which is over an hour from Harlem. And almost an hour back to Soho where we went next. I managed to get quite a lot done on the shawl I'm currently crocheting.
Quilting shops and yarn stores have been visited and money spent at all of them. The friendliness and kindness that has been shown to both of us is astounding, and the "husband chairs" are comfortable. We have a lot to learn in Australia ...
I'll be able to show what I purchased when I get back to Canberra. Unless I send it by sea mail because it doesn't fit in my port.
