Sunday Travel Section: Boston

The past week was a bit busy - we had a major project due on Friday, so I was spending very nearly all of my waking hours at school working on it. Fortunately, this hasn't seriously affected my knitting time (since I knit during class), just my blogging time.

I finished the Horcrux socks, and I really like the way they turned out.


Pattern: Horcrux socks in fingering weight
Modifications: I changed the heel, foot and toe.
Yarn: Trekking XXL

Remember the Schaefer I bought a while back? I dug it out of the stash and started Pomatomus socks. My yarn doesn't look so much like the actual fish, but it does make me think of a small, bright, tropical fish.


I'm really glad I started the Sunday travel section; it helps me post at least once a week and avoid the disappearances like happened last month. This Sunday, for no particular reason (besides that I was going through my pictures and found one I liked), we travel to Boston. I went to school there (technically Cambridge, but close enough), so I'm rather fond of the place, if not so much the weather. The picture was taken from Boston Harbor.

Not that I have travelled in the US extensively, but Boston is a great town. And Cambridge is very studenty/funky. A great place.

Love the socks.

I like the socks, and I love Boston. It's a great place to knit, which there is plenty of time for while waiting in line to eat at Legal Seafoods on a Friday night if you don't have reservations. But the clam chowder is worth it.

I love the blues in the Schaefer.
