First String Progress
It's getting closer! It's looking more and more like something that might fit over a human being. Only three more decrease rows (and a lot of straight rows) to go. It's at that point where it is changing more and more as I work on it, and it's all I want to do.
Tomorrow I think I will be attending my first local Stitch n' Bitch. I've been meaning to go, but I was under the impression that it was on Mondays, and what with all the traveling I've been doing recently I didn't feel like going on Mondays. But I have not been traveling, and I also discovered that it is on Wednesdays.
I've recently come to the point where I feel comfortable in my own home, and am ready to venture out. Unfortunately, I don't know where to go. In St. Louis I learned a lot about the city by meeting people on the internet and going to meet them at new-to-me restaurants. I'm not really interested in wasting any more of my time doing that, but I might be wearing down. My other avenues of discovery will be knitting (finding knitting stores and groups, etc.) and joining a chorus (hopefully the May Festival Chorus, but whatever.) I also need to hunt down favorite stores. This past weekend's foray to find Sur la Table worked well; it was surrounded by a nice shopping center (Wild Oats! Ta da!). I'm certain I can find more interesting places that way.
What else? Any suggestions? Any locals out there with connections for a good spot to watch the fireworks? I'm finding out it's "the thing to do" on Labor Day weekend a little late and lonely. Maybe someone will take pity on me and invite me to tag along with their party.
