    You really timed your trip right – this past week in NYC has been the most beautiful of the year so far! Sounds like you had a fabulous trip.

    great shots, looks like so much fun.. your pictutures are amazing…. what camera do you use?

  4. Avice

    I am in awe a your self control!

  5. Barb

    What a fun trip. Keep practicing those cartwheels!

  6. Karen B.

    You certainly know how to plan a fabulous, fun-filled adventure – and document it too! Will you be my NYC yarn guide?

    It sounds like you had a wonderful trip. I love the photo session you had in the park. My friend Kelly and I have been know to bust of the camera for an impromptu session of photo fun: everything from my first trip to White Castle, fun with an abandoned shopping cart, “hey here’s a pile of picnic tables in the middle of the woods”, and “do you think we can stop the car, climb on the statue, and get take a picture before the cops show up?”. That last one involved four friends and for cameras and a rotating system so you didn’t have the same three people in your photo all the time. I think I need to invest in a timer and wide angle lens!

    Wow what awesome photos of you two jumping and cartwheeling! Love it!

  9. Lin

    Those books look lovely, I would have been there for ages! I can’t do cartwheels so I am rather impressed with yours!

    adore the photos, glad you enjoyed this crazy town and cant wait to see more :)

  11. Nora

    Gosh, I remember your last trip to NYC [and Habu!] – has it been 12 months already!?!

  12. Ginnie

    What a great trip! I love the action shots–it looks like you had a lot of fun.

    There is a Kinokuniya bookstore about a 5 minute walk from my office, so I go there at lunch sometimes. It’s a great way to relax, and I always find something to take home with me:)

    looks like you had a really fun trip! I especially love the cart wheel shots. How do you do cart wheels anyway? I just have this horrific mental image that if I do it, I’ll snap my neck or something :)

  14. Keatyn

    Sounds like a great trip!

  15. connie

    It was *so* nice to meet you in person, Lolly. I had a great time!

    Re: Central Park. Only in NYC will 2 people jumping about attract no attention. :)

    yarn, Kinokuniya, and cartwheels? Sounds like a great vacay. Last time I tried to do a cartwheel, I think I pulled a hammie.

  18. Mintyfresh

    we were nothing compared with those synchronized yogis down at the bottom of the hill! We were clearly just goofballs. It was so fun!

  19. caitlyn

    It looks like you had SUCH a great time! I love all of your photos.

  20. Vickie

    I love the photos of the cartwheels. Looks like you had a blast.

  21. Jennifer

    Looks like we crossed paths – I was in Philly while you were in New York. Maybe next time! Habu is FABU! I’m so glad you went. The cartwheels exemplify the fun spirit of your getaway. A true spring fling.

  22. Jen

    I love Cowgirl! It’s one of my favorite happy hour spots. Those prickly pear margaritas are a weakness of mine. I can’t wait to see what you got at School Products, I’ve been putting off a visit there due to a slew of recent yarn purchases, but don’t think I’ll be able to resist much longer since it’s just around the corner from my office.

  23. Amber

    Great post! Looked like a fun trip!

  24. Amy

    Oooh, a camera remote is a great idea! I’ve always wanted to visit Habu, Mood, etc. Next time you go, check out MJ Trim–one of my favorite notions shops in the garment district.

  25. Stacey

    I really want to go back to NY soon. I went about 5 years ago in January and MAN was it cold. (This coming from the So Cal girl.) I think theres a Kinokuniya in SF…I might have to go there when I am up there next month. Sadly, Randy is Japanese but doesn’t know any of the language. I guess I’ll have to find someone else to translate if I buy anything! And what cute cartwheel photos :)

  26. jackie

    what’d ya knit on the train, lolly? i always love amtrak and don’t even care too much about the delays a trip to NYC always seems to entail–all that free knitting time! :)

    lord, i miss new york sometimes…

  27. April

    what a fun time! the cartwheel pics are great. ;)
    I’ll have to remember this post when I make my way up to NYC this summer. I love poking my head in new yarn shops.

  28. tiennie

    How fun! Springtime and parks are made for cartwheels!

  29. Jenna

    Beautiful weather, yarn and friends – what else do you need? Sounds like a really fun trip, despite the weather. Did you have a bagel for me like I asked? I really miss a good bagel…

    I’ll be anxious to hear your plans for your new yarn. xoxox

    it looks like it was a lot of fun! i’d never heard of gotta knit. i’ll have to check it out next time i’m in new york!

  31. Sourire11

    Looks like a fun weekend! I love quick little get aways like that – especially when there is so much yarn involved! We’re planning a trip to NYC this fall and I will definately refer back to this post before we go.

  32. Mome-rath

    What fun!

    One of the many reasons I’m so excited to move to the Seattle area: they have a Kinokuniya there! Hooray for Japanese craft books! Enjoy your lovely finds!

  33. melissa

    sorry i missed ya this year! you were lucky to have some really nice weather too!

    i didn’t realize gotta knit had moved to 34th street. learn something new every day :)

    mood is something, isn’t it? i’ve been there many times before, but for some reason, I thought it would be ok to go up there at 2:30pm the day before i left for christmas holiday to buy fabric for my wedding dress. crazy? yes! luckily they have some helpful staff and i didn’t crumble into a crying mess.

  34. scoutj

    You know I love the jumpy shots!!!

  35. Moni

    Looks like you had a great weekend! I love N.Y. I need to get back there someday.

  36. knitlit kate

    oh look at you go with the cartwheels! what fun…you can’t have too many knitting traditions…or too many cartwheels : 0

  37. Cindy

    Those action shots are great!

    Glad you had fun here in NYC!

  38. Romi

    OMG. I am so jealous that you got to meet Connie in person. She rocks. :)

    [...] some background: You may recall that my last two trips to New York City have included stops at Kinokuniya Book Store, the well-stocked Japanese language book store in Manhattan. I don’t know a lick of Japanese, [...]
