A Weekend in San Jose (as represented by knitting projects) February 24, 2007Posted by merp in Knitting, Travel.
Ok, so we forgot to bring the camera.
But we did have a sweet weekend in sunny NoCal! (If SoCal, then NoCal, right?) Apparently they’ve suffered a “cold” winter there (i.e., the banana trees didn’t make it), but for us it turned sunny and seventy, with the daffodils blooming. The occasion was Aaron’s grandma’s birthday, wherein all the family gathered round and swept her off to Teatro Zinzanni in San Francisco, an extravagantly outrageous, ambigendered dinner theatre with a luxurious menu.
This was my first time to meet the whole clan, a thoroughly agreeable and interesting bunch, all three generations. Thanks, all, for such an enjoyable weekend!
Of course this trip meant many hours in transit, plus a fair bit of sitting and chatting, ergo…
One rib and cable mitt. Just a few ends still to weave in. And yes, perhaps a mate to knit. *Love* it.
And finally started Rusted Root, planned since last fall:
It’s in the KnitPicks Main Line I originally bought for my sister’s blue sweater (see July 21, ’06 post).
Here’s what the finished sweater is supposed to look like. Though I’ve deepened the neck a tad, left out the sleeve poofs and plan on elbow-length sleeves.
