Fiddly little rows
Other than that, I did get out and about yesterday. I've always meant to go around the North End, which I did, but I missed having Himself with me to play "Lookit!" with the archtectural features on the buildings. Next week there's a festival and I may go back for that. After the North End I went to the South End and strolled down Tremont street from Clarendon but it was hot and sunny and I gave it up at MA Ave.
In other knitting news, i finally found a new york yarn shop i can stomach- it's in soho, called simply "purl." the owner was there stocking shelves a la lucy (with koigu all over the floor and table, trying to determine the color arrangement that suited it). She invited me to touch everything, to look around, and to sit, be comfy, and knit a few rows if i wanted. Phew- I was afraid all the yarn stores here were either stodgy or $98 per skein (literally- look up "string" on madison ave.- least expensive skein, $22...)
After the visit with the endo last week, we've been doing science on me, which means I have to be not only good, but dutiful. And doing science means no extras, like chocolate bits or ice cream (did you hear there's an Emack and Bolio's next to Healthworks now?) I wasn't aware how many "extras" I had in the course of a week until I have to make myself not have them.
Sigh. It's hot here.
