It's been busy times around here, but with good reason.
My kid sister was in town for the weekend. [She's not so much a kid anymore... she's 25 and married!] She hadn't been to Washington since 2002, and that was in the middle of a snowstorm. So we had a lot of ground to cover, particularly the ground at Arlington National Cemetery. She's wanted to go to Arlington since I moved here 7 years ago, and freak events [hurricanes, snowstorms, terrorist attacks] have conspired against her. This time, we braved the 90+ degree weather and spent a morning there. We even hiked to the high point, the Custis-Lee House.
And we were rewarded with a great view of Washington. I love the way Washington has such a flat anti-skyline, dominated by the Monument:
So, not too much knitting to report, since I was a gal about town. So over the past couple of days I've taken it easy and knitted on the front of the tank. Look, shaping!
I think there's a trip to a craft store in my future, to get some fabric glue to hide the ends. Soon, I think, a finished tank!Posted by Ann at July 12, 2005 06:31 AM
