Boy oh boy, sometimes there is so much going on that while I really should be blogging, I let it slide. Then where do I start? Well, I figured I'd sum up with a nice little list in no particular order, just to recap.
Going to baseball games this summer has been great... though I wish we started earlier in the season. A few games at Shea, and a game at Fenway have given me a chance to work on my scorecard-keeping skills. And of course I'm thrilled that the Mets clinched the division. Subway series anyone?
Another relaxing trip to Cambridge, staying at the always fabulous Charles Hotel. The weather was a little rainy, but we made the best of it. And hey, the Fenway game wasn't rained out (thank goodness!). We also met up with friends, had a great meal in Little Italy, and saw family. And yes, as usual the trip threw us right back into the 'Why don't we live here' saga. Sigh. We love it there, without a doubt, and I know we would be very happy settling down there for awhile. But we love NYC, and have many dear friends in the area. I'll tell ya, being a grown-up is hard sometimes!
Just this past weekend, a quick trip to Philly to see Dave's family, then spent Sunday afternoon getting my hair cut and having dinner with our friend Susann (hi Susann!) at Ditch Plains.
I've been working on 3 knitting projects. A flared capelet from Wrap Style in chocolate brown Cotton Fleece. A cropped long-sleeved cardigan (based on the Anthropologie-inspired capelet from Crafster) in blue Cotton Fleece. And finally, a vertical striped scarf using 3 shades of green Classic Elite wool bamboo. UPDATE: I started this post a few days ago and now I have 3 more projects! I'm halfway through Sugar on Snow with KnitPicks Merino in similar colors to the original pattern. And I just bought the pattern for Arianna (amazing, right?) and am going to knit that with KnitPicks Shine Worsted in Ebony. Plus, I bought some KnitPicks Swish Superwash in Truffle to make a Ribbi Cardi.
More to come later, I should post this now before I start another 4 million knitting projects!
