Since airfares were down, and Patty had an itch to go somewhere, she hopped a"redeye" from San Francisco to JFK Thursday night, and arrived in New Yorkon Halloween. The subway trip was easy since a greattransitwebsite had "mapped" a route from the Howard Beach station to Evelyn'snearest subway stop.

Patty's travel lesson: unless you like the cattle-carapproach to flying, don't take the redeye from SFO to JFK. The American AirlinesDC-10 was extremely crowded with no leg room for anyone but First Class passengers(all eight of them).

Yarn Shopping in Queens

Smiley's Yarns in Queens has a very large stock of yarns at excellent prices. Though much of the yarn is acrylic, there are some natural fibers and blends, like the wool/nylon/acrylic blend that Patty took home. For now it goes into her stash. One day it may have another life as a vest or sweater. Check out the PattyMade pages to see.

Girlfriend was at doggie day care, and was overjoyed to see her mom.
