Lots of stuff going on in the city yesterday. In addition to the event I primarily came to NYC for - the Knit Out in Union Square - there was a San Gennaro Fair in Little Italy, the 11th annual Mexican Day Parade on Madison Ave., and according to a friend of mine, a Japanese Craft festival on the upper west side.

There was a lot of people at the Knit Out yesterday, but shy girl that I am, I didn't really meet anyone new. Instead, my cousin and I sought refuge from the sun and the heat in the shade next to the stage. From a distance, we spotted Lily Chen and Stephanie of Yarn Harlot fame. There were booths manned by the staff of various LYS's of the city (including one with a neat knitted banner), by publishing companies (Interweave had sneak peek display samples from their upcoming winter issue), and by knitting charities.

Afterwards, my husband and I grabbed a quick dinner from John's in the Village. It's such a popular place that there was a wait even at 6:00 on a Sunday. We had a simple mushroom pizza, but it was delicious!

Sounds like you had a fun weekend - seeing knitting celebrities and all! Fibers fests are fun, but slightly overwhelming!
