Hodge and Podge Are Going to New York City!


Hodge and Podge and I are very excited about our trip to the Big Apple this weekend. None of us has ever been. We’ll just be three little wide-eyed squirrels in the big city. Luckily I have some very nice friends who will be looking out for us. We’re going to visit the Vogue Knitting Live marketplace at the Marriott Marquis near Times Square, the garment district (can’t wait to step foot in Mood!), Chinatown, High Line, Battery Park, and the World Trace Center Memorial Plaza to name a few. We can’t wait to get there and hug our friends and explore the city! But first we better pack.

Hodge and Podge Go to New York

Hodge and Podge have packed their bags for their big trip to New York City. What are you bringing, Podge?

Hodge and Podge Go to New York 3 “I’m bringing a book on how to knit. I can’t wait to check out all the goodies at the Vogue Knitting event.
Better brush up on my knitting skills first!”

And Hodge what are you bringing?

“I’m bringing a donut.”

Huh, I see. Well, I guess we’re just about set then. New York City, here we come!

  1. Hodge might want to check with the TSA and make sure that donut isn’t a threat to our national security before getting to the airport…

    Have a great trip! If you happen to stumble across Regis while you’re there, say hi to him for me!

    • Haha! Hodge’s donut made it through security. He was so relieved. We didn’t see Regis or pizza rat (you seriously need to watch the pizza rat video on YouTube if you haven’t already) but we had a lot of fun.
