Upstate Knitting Party
January 17, 2007
I’m issuing the red alert today because Kay has wandered off to Philadelphia on another one of her freaky day trips to hang out with Cristina. Only slightly envious. Totally.
Girl cannot even post a simple blog entry anymore. Failure to blog is a possible symptom of letting herself go, if you know what I mean.
O knitters of the Catskills, arise! Kay is coming up on Saturday, January 20, one o’clock, for a knitting party at what has to be the cutest shop in the entire state of New York: Mercantile, which is located at 72 Main Street, Andes, NY. Here’s a map. You’ll notice that Main Street could just as well be called The Street.
We have a tender feeling for Andes, because it’s where many of the photos for our book were made. Mercantile is owned by Rick Shaver and Lee Melahn, the folks who let us take over their house. (That’s the house, above. I got no photo of the shop!)
There’s great food nearby at Cassie’s Kitchen, The Andes Hotel if you get sleepy (they throw a fine Christmas party), and a feeling that you are living about six decades ago.
Why am I telling you all this, when only a fraction of us can go? Because I wish we could all be there, in that lovely, secret little town. Now we can all imagine it.
