California

I have not seen this much sunlight in half a year or more. We’ve been doing a lot of wandering around the city, and I have not once managed to remember my camera when leaving the house.

The truth is that while I love having pictures, I hate taking them. I would rather that they just appeared on my computer. *Poof!!* You have pictures!!

I’ve been pretty exhausted from the travelling and the time change, and today I have also acquired some sort of sore throat/headache viral thing. This has contributed greatly to my lack of posting.

To go backward a little bit, I finished the malabrigo knee socks at the beginning of finals week:

Then I came home and bought some illicit yarn with Amanda. Malabrigo laceweight in the stonechat colourway. Don’t look at me like that. I had to.

It has quickly become more than half a lace scarf…thanks to all the airplane/BART time. I can’t get a good picture of the colors right now, but here is a slightly washed out version.

Then, at Imagiknit, The Sneak found some sock yarn she liked:

It is Lorna’s Laces in the Bee Stripe colourway. I was definitely not supposed to start knitting these yet. Until I broke a needle on my other sock, that is… Oh well.

We have seen a lot of pretty things walking around, and I wish that I had pictures of them to show. I feel a lot like I’m in Ann Arbor, on a larger scale. I like that all the buildings have metal gates, and that everything is green in March. There are fantastic murals all over the buildings, and enough coffee shops to make your eyes sting just thinking about it.

Also…I could definitely live in a city that has Indian restaurants on every corner. You really wouldn’t have to try to convince me.

On another note, how many of us thought that we had seen the last of this:

Yeah, me too. I think this is reason enough to hate airports. I don’t want to talk about it.

Finally, when we came home from the city on Thursday night, I heard my sister and Jess laughing from the other room while I was washing my face.  When I asked them what was so funny, I was informed that my sweater had had yarn babies all over the coffee table.

Very funny.  Now that you mention it, she does seem kind of protective…
