trips ahoy: September 2005 Archives

DC rocked

| | Comments (0)

I finished out my DC visit with a trip to Clyde's for some seafood, Potomac Mills- the outlet mall, and a third visit to Knit Happens

First off- Steph was an awesome hostess, even locking her poor kitty out of the bedroom at all times so there would be no chance of it getting into my stuff and thereby making me sneeze. I'll miss Piper who has to be the most awesome kitty ever, since she lets you hold her tail. Well, I didn't, but Stephi demonstrated for me.

Secondly, despite the humidity which this lucky girl doesn't really miss, I made a mad dash to most of the museums. Photos soon.

Third, I will miss out not having a public transit commute. Wendy is so lucky to have a commute. I know, this is odd, but it was fairly efficient and gave me about an hour and half knitting time each day. No stress of getting to somewhere on time, either, because a) I was on vacation so my schedule was flexible and b) I was under the timetable of the metro system, so not much I could control anyhow.

Happy Moon Festival.

Displaced kitty

I've forced a cute little kitty out of her bedroom and bed. Piper is a sweet cat though, so maybe she'll forgive me. Do cats do the whole shoe revenge thing dogs do?....

And what does a knitter do with a huge stretch of plane time before her? Work on a sock, of course.

Ok. That doesn't really show off the lace work which is taking so loooooooong though, does it (BTW, nice color. I have two skeins of this and just realized that, despite the assurance of the shop owner, might not be enough. This is due to my own rip and hack job, though)

Sock on a Cup. We have a heel, too, but really, it isn't so interesting and doesn't merit a separate photo.

Well, I'm off to bed since it is midnight here in DC where I'm visiting a friend and I plan to take on the monuments early tomorrow.

Sock, meet monument. Monument- Sock. Toodles!

BTW, the fear that the socks will not be completed by the deadline has now set in. I think I'll need to visit a yarn store to procrastiknit and deny the possibility that there won't be a time warp in my favor before next Tuesday.

P.S. Claritin-D 24 hour is doing its job so far
