The conference is going well but I’m just about ready to go home. I never sleep well during these things so I’ll be wishing for some extra time off when I get back. Too bad that won’t happen.
The wifi situation here has been less than ideal (read: What the hell do you mean I have to PAY for it when I’m paying over $100 a night for a hotel room?!?) so I’m going to have to make this quick (and the Panera I’m in keeps randomly blocking Flickr! ARRRGH!!!).
On Wednesday I saw two Vanderbilt mansions. Marblehouse:
And the Breakers.
Both amazing. Make sure you click over to Flickr and look at the rest of the set those two pics are in.
While I’ve been here I started yet another new project:
It’s a Bog Jacket by EZ. Perfect for
long boring meeting knitting. The yarn is from Green Mountain Spinnery that I picked up last year when we went to Vermont. It’s a singles yarn and seems almost felted off the skein, but washes up and blooms nicely after knitting. I fell in love with the project after seeing this one on Ravelry and hope mine ends up looking as nice. I plan to incorporate all her shaping suggestions so that should keep things interesting.
Well, time to get back to the conference and hopefully I’ll have a wrap up of that and all the knitters here early next week. Have a great weekend everyone!
