I've also been working on socks and a third baby sweater (the first, teeny one went to Boston Cares, and the 2 larger ones, once I finish this second one, are going to my sister's coworkers, I do believe. I do enjoy creating baby things because they are small (and thus knit up relatively quick) & adorable, but I need to find some better patterns; these are getting boring! Anyone have any baby-things knitting books to suggest to me?
I intend to go to NYC this weekend, possibly with Dan in tow, to visit some old friends & celebrate a few birthdays! I am looking forward to the trip, but at the same time I am such a homebody, and hate being away for too long. So I probably won't last more than 24ish hours there. (I think this homesickness is exacerbated by the fact that I never seem to get to spend any weekends in Boston these days! Which isn't necessarily bad, but it does make me miss it.)
I have been meaning to post this fantastic NYM article for the past week or so; I think it applies perfectly to Boston, as well: The Urban Etiquette Handbook. It got quite a few laughs out of me, as well as of course the expected "yeah, people need to be more conscientous about that"s.
Tonight: The Forest Hills Lantern Festival, one of my favorite Boston things. That is, if it ever stops raining... xoxo
