Pins Dropping…

It is quiet around here. So quiet, you could hear a pin drop. Not that I don’t have things going on, but they all seem so … routine. I guess I should not complain about it.

I went downtown yesterday for a doctor’s appointment. Every time I go downtown, I’m surprised how much I miss it. How much I love downtown. When I was a little girl, I told my Mom that all I wanted when I grew up was an apartment, a cat and a motorcycle with patches for jackets all over it. I think I should have added that I wanted an apartment in the city – I always love the downtown feeling.

For the record, I have two cats, I have lived in a suburban apartment, and riding a motorcycle scares the crap out of me.

While in downtown yesterday, I saw a Yellow Cab minivan with the funky spinning hubcaps. While I’ve threatened to put them on my Honda (can’t you just see me with spinning wheels?), they looked really out of place on a Yellow Cab minivan. If I hadn’t been half-way through the crosswalk when I spotted them, I would have taken a picture.

I finished Kathy’s scarf the other night and started one for Kymberlie yesterday. I’ll try to take photos of them to share soon. It is very soothing to make them. I signed up yesterday for knitting lessons at my LYS (local yarn shop) – classes start Tuesday morning!

I wish I had the patience to learn to knit. I would totally make myself a super soft hat out of cashmere or something. I left all of my winter hats in MI and there’s been a few days that I wish I’d brought at least one.

I would have loved to have taught you what little I know and or remember! Something I could have shared with you… But probably best to get good instructions from the beginning!

“Loved to have taught?” Oh, don’t think you’re getting off that easily! You’ll still be teaching me too – I am sure I will need all the help I can GET! Mike had promised me the lessons at Christmas, and I thought I should take him up on it while I could!

I’ve always thought it would be cool to live downtown in my small town, rather than on the outskirts. I’d love to be within walking distance of cute little shops and restaurants. But at this point, we’ll take whatever we can get, since right now we’re pretty much homeless. 🙂 (Soon my sister-in-law and I are going on a road trip to a big yarn store so we can start new knitting projects!)

Oh good luck! I’d LOVE to learn how to knit — I’ve bought all the books and still just can’t ‘get it’, hopefully that makes sense.

I guess I’ll stick to my cross-stitching! 🙂

I would love to learn how to knit. I’m living outside of Paris near St Germain en laye but am in Paris almost everyday. Does anyone know where I can take lessons? I am learning French but really need someone who can speak English. Thanks.
