ONLY ONE MORE DAY TO OUR SUBWAY YARN MOB! HOW EXCITING! :-)
Hello everyone! Tomorrow's the day and I am so excited that I can hardly contain myself. I have come up with a little plan for our convening and meeting and thought that I would make sure it was OK with you all. It seems as if there are quite a few options around Atlantic Terminal, but I was worried about a space big enough for us to convene. So - how about we meet at the Starbucks in Target? I will get there at 11:30 a.m. with a little signage and stuff so that you call an find me, but we won't leave until noon. That way we all have time to grab a little lunch or snack for the train ride before we depart at noon. Then at noon we'll walk from the Target to the Q train and start our ride to Coney Island. On the way we will need our 5.5 mm hooks (I) or needles. We'll make squares on the way down and start piecing them together along the way. A bunch of you have volunteered to bring yarn from your stashes, so I think we are all set on that front. Here's the short version...
11:30 a.m. - Meet at Starbucks in Target at Atlantic Terminal Mall
12:00 p.m. - Depart for Q train
12:17 p.m. - Get on Q train towards Stillwell/Coney Island
12:55 p.m. - Arrive at Coney Island
Once we're at Coney Island, the group can vote to take a little walk to Nathan's or something (it will be partly cloudy and about 41 degrees F), or to turn right around and head back to Atlantic Terminal. I figure we can vote once we're all assembled.
SO - there's the agenda. I am just so excited. Here's my cell - it might come in handy tomorrow: (914) 319-9890. Text or call if you have any questions. Don't forget your hooks or needles and some large-eyed tapestry/darning needles!
Let's keep this party going! How about a good old fashioned subway ride along! :-) I tossed this idea out during our last meetup and it seemed well received, so here's my suggestion. How about we meet on Saturday, December 7, 2013 at a fast food shop at Atlantic Center Mall, and then jump on the Q train for a ride to Coney Island and back? We can grab a sandwich or something to munch on and then twerk our Metrocards. :-) I was also thinking that we could choose a knit and crochet square to make on the ride down, and then start assembling them on the ride back and then we can donate the small afghan to a local children's hospital or something...
Please chime in!
