We just got back from a exhausting road trip to Boston, MA. We brought Melody back to Boston to celebrate my MIL's 70th Birthday. And for her to meet the rest of our family that haven't seen her yet. Traveling with a baby and 2 dogs is a lot of work! I still have to unpack and put things away.
While I get my house/life in order, let me distract you with photos of what we did last weekend during a beautiful NYC weekend.
DH had his hands full. The boys were super excited to go to the park.By the time we got to the park, Melody was asleep. That does not look comfortable.We stopped by Cake Man Raven's bakery for his famous Red Velvet Cake. I got Red Velvet Cupcakes instead. Wow, these are the best Red Velvet Cupcakes I have ever had. Moist and not too sweet, a perfect balance with the frosting.I caved and went back to the Brooklyn Flea to buy some Lotta Jansdotter fabric. She didn't have green fabrics on display so I asked Lotta if she had anymore colors to choose from. She pulled out a bin and let me rummage around. I found the green patterned fabric and I already know what I will make with it (a project from her book). The orange one will go into my fabric collection.
Progress on Trellis has been slow. So far, I got the right front done. I used the 3 needle bind off on the shoulder since many people have complained how hard it is to graft it. This sweater takes a lot of concentration, so I often work on easier projects when I don't have the energy/time to devote to Trellis.
