Portland Visit

Here's a photo taken during our recent visit to Portland. The weather was kind of off and on. Rather chilly (for what we think is appropriate in May) and showers most of the time. We really enjoyed ourselves in spite of the damp. DH and I accompanied Becky and the kids to story hour and music class. I participated in swimming class. We went for lots of walks, out for pizza and enjoyed some wonderful dinners prepared by Linda. The kids are growing so fast, really very verbal and very active. I'm thrilled that they will be visiting the east coast at the end of August. I'm looking forward to taking them to the playground and to the pool.

The High Line

Saturday, May 1, we made a visit to The High Line in New York City.  This park, built on an abandoned elevated rail line has been open for a while but we hadn't had a chance to visit.  It was a beautiful day and we had a dinner date in the Village so we went into the city early and walked the entire length round trip.  Here are some photos to give you an idea of how beautiful it is and how popular it has become.






No trip to a park would be complete without a session of knitting in public.

Trying Hard to Play Catch Up

According to my calendar this is week #18 of 2010. I'm two projects behind in my efforts to finish 52 in 52. I do have few almost finished works in progress, so there is hope for me. Here are some photos of what I'm working on.

Pinata Toddler Tank in Knit One Crochet Too's Ty Dye Cotton

Lace Baby Cardi

Rambling Rows Baby Sweater

If I can get two of these finished, I'll be up to date.  Wish me luck.
