I’m back!

Today’s post is going to be light on knitting content, and heavy on life (catch up) content. My life will be back to . . . all about knitting, as soon as possible. It’s been a crazy two weeks. First I had to survive the holiday rush of extra performances and extra rehearsals, then I […]

9 show weeks both blow & suck!

Well, it’s almost 10:00 pm on Monday, and I’m finally settling in for some TV and blogging. I didn’t make it to Chicks with Sticks tonight, but I’ll be back after the holidays. Today was just too filled with chores, and the whole day got away. Last week at Jersey Boys was a nine show […]

"Oh What a Night"

I woke up today at 1:00 pm (for the third time). Last night was the opening night of the Jersey Boys tour in San Francisco. I got home from the opening night party a little after midnight, and was sound asleep by 1:00 am, but then I was wide awake by 3:00 am, back asleep […]

The famed . . .

It’s finally here. We think about it, we dream about it, we imagine what it will feel like when it comes, we wonder if it will be as wonderful as we’d hoped. I’m speaking of course, of the day off. It’s been 10 days in a row of 12 – 14 hour days in the […]

Giving Thanks

We’ve finished our first three days of tech on Jersey Boys here in San Fran. All in all things are going pretty well. We are slightly ahead of schedule. The local crew at the Curran are FANTASTIC, some of the best I’ve ever worked with. We got up to the Sherry/Big Girls/Walk Like a Man […]

I left my heart . . .

in Park Slope Brooklyn (really) So, my bags are packed, my friends are coming over in 15 minutes for my goodbye dinner, the car picks me up at 9:15 am tomorrow, and then . . . it’s “San Francisco here I come”. I finished my Spring Fling FINALLY. Not really spring anymore, but I was […]

knitting for spatial justice

This will mean more to New Yorkers. . . Knitting on the subway. We’ve all seen them, we’ve all sat next to them, or tried. The people on the subway, usually men, sometimes women, who just take up more space than they should. On the newer subway trains, the bench between the door and the […]

The show that ate my knitting

At the end of my second week of rehearsal for Jersey Boys, I’ve barely had time to knit (or sleep or eat). For those of you who have never had the joy (and I mean that both genuinely and sarcastically at the same time!) of working on a Broadway show or National Tour . . […]

In mourning for Rhinebeck

Well, I’m still trying to get over missing Rhinebeck last weekend. It was my niece’s bat mitzvah, and our family reunion. It was a crazy deja vu experience going to a bat mitzvah. Watching 13 year olds trying not to look like they care about dancing with eachother. The most bizarre thing was the music […]

Life – knitting interruptous

It’s begun, or ended. Those lazy days of summer knitting are over. I’ve been crazy busy lately, and it’s just going to get worse. Last week I spent a whole day at Jersey Boys starting to learn the show as best I can before we go into rehearsal on Monday. I watched it from out […]

The tao of spinning (and other life lessons)

I’ve been feeling rather reflective the last few days. Maybe it’s the season, maybe it’s getting ready to go back to work. These wonderful days of relaxing in our garden, knitting, spinning, enjoying Brooklyn are all about to come to an end. I spent the day in the garden on Wednesday. It was time to […]
