No, not "Who's it gonna be in 2008?" decisions
Much more interesting stuff--on-the-road knitting activities!
Next week, I'll be going to Washington DC for a few days to enjoy the heat and humidity. Taking the train there and back. Staying in a hotel. Hanging out with friends in the evenings. Doing nothing during the (hot and humid) days.
Will I do the sights? I doubt it. Been there, done that.
Besides, geez, I live in NYC. I HATE getting out and about *here* in the summer. Too hot and too crowded with folks from Oshkosh who block the sidewalks. I love being holed up in my dark, cool cave of an apartment when the people from Peoria are trooping around town with their cameras and fanny packs. ***
Why would it be anything different in Washington?
Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 90s. Lots of tourists. Plenty of humidity.
So, now it's decision time.
Yarn stores to visit? Any daytime knitting groups?
Anyone have any suggestions? They have to be accessible by Metro or (better yet) cab. I don't mind traveling to the suburbs.
What knitting to bring?
Forest Canopy Shawl--maybe.
Victorian Lace Shawl--might be good for train knitting.
Tabloid Socks--would really like to finish them
Something new? Hmmmmmm. . . . . Maybe some cotton socks?
Is there any can't-be-missed sight that I should put on the fanny pack for?
(***Love ya, tourists! I really, really do.)
