Mystic & Noank CT with a side of knitting

One of my favorite places to go for the day or a long weekend is Mystic, CT, in fact we just came back yesterday!

I could just sit for hours and watch the boats. It is so relaxing.

In fact I can say I actually knit while sitting looking at the sailboats. I started this scarf last week with some yarn I purchased in Washington state a couple of years back, and managed to nearly finish it while just enjoying my ocean view.

I plan on using a kitchener stitch and making it into a cowl. I will post all the details when I finish it.

My Christmas knitting is officially done, as I only wanted to do a couple of projects. My fall schedule at work is going to be crazy so I needed to keep it light.

Up next, I'm thinking I'm waiting for an order from The Loopy Ewe. :-)

Knitting...not so much with all this traveling...

We decided to take a few mini vacations this year, over one big summer vacation and had always wanted to check out Salem, MA. Of course, the more popular time is October...but we wanted less crowds.

It was another beautiful weather day.

We highly recommend the trolley ride as it brings you all around and shows you some things off the beaten path.

Still knitting away on gift items....

Boston or Bust

The DH and I celebrated our 21st anniversary this year. We decided to take a long weekend and head into Boston to celebrate.

It was a great weather weekend, high 70's and just a mild wind.

We took some time to check out the USS Constitution:

We chose to stay where we could walk to everything, the North End, Rowe's Wharf and Quincy Market. This was our superb view from our hotel balcony...

Anniversary treats!

Of course I love being on the water, so off we went....

As for the knitting front I'm working on a couple of projects I can't disclose yet, as the recipients read this.

Have any of you started the Christmas knitting?
