meant a day off yesterday.  The temps reached a gorgeous sixty something here in Boston, and the Newbury Street cafes had their tables set up, so when I friend said she was up for a day walking around the city,  I hopped in the car.   Perfect day for  for a bloody mary and lobster salad lunch!  The sun felt great -  I even have a one-hour V neck triangle tan to show for it.  

Still in limbo today, I signed up for yoga class on Monday, have an appointment for a manicure/pedicure in another hour, and got my hair cut and dyed back up yesterday (waaaaaaay overdue).  Seems I could look a lot better in general if I ran out of yarn more often.
  

This guy was the culprit.  But I'm pretty happy with my perfectly slouchy, not-pointy hood even if it did eat an entire skein of yarn.   I thought about making it smaller, but nope.  It's going to make me so happy some windy day at the beach this summer.  More yarn is on the way, so it'll get finished soon.

In the meantime, I started another project - before I turn to something really dangerous, like shoe shopping.


More legwarmer ideas have me thinking about All The Boots that were on Sale in town....

I'm glad you're keeping yourself contained... my last stint of no knitting resulted in re-organizing the whole house. My husband [and I, for that matter] took the next 2 weeks figuring out where I had put everything!
What is that colorway you ran out of? Its fab!

I had a lobster salad plate at Stephanie's on Newbury a couple years ago that was Out. Of. This. World. I wondered if that's where you had yours. Few things make me salivate more than yarn ... and lobster is one of them, ayuh.

Diana - this was the warm lobster salad at 29 Newbury - asparagus, white beans, and a basil vinagrette. It was kind of awesome too. But I love Stephanie's too - their lobster BLT on brioche is something I still dream about!

And Annie, that's Plucky Knitter Primo Sport in Lincoln. It's just like an old coppery penny!

That hoodie looks so temmpting. And don't get me started about being envious of your outdoor lunch.

The hood is gorgeous! And there were some great sales at Berks today.

Yes!!! That hoodie doesn't look too intimidating. Hurry up and get that pattern de-bugged and out for us so we can sit and knit in the sunshine before it disappears as soon as summer comes again this year in upstate NY:D

It's looking good. When I run out of yarn (if it actually happens), I usually end up reading a lot more. My hair and house do not end up looking better for it.
