I’m still in deliberation if I venture out on Tuesday to Downtown Silver Spring to meet up with a group (or a few?) ladies that also knit — AND enjoy wine. It’s like starting at a new school – you have no friends, you don’t know your way around, you feel like everyone knows that you aren’t from here…like there is a big neon sign hanging above my head that says “Hey everyone! This is a California girl!”
Side note – about two weeks ago, on the way home from somewhere…there was a car infront of us that had a California license plate. For a millisecond my brain felt at ease, my mind actually tricked into thinking that for a split second I was back on the West Coast. Random thought…just popped in my head…felt like sharing.
I’m about to finish a baby blanket that I have been working on, fingers crossed that I can bind it off in a way that doesn’t look retarded. Maybe I need this group more than I care to admit. Maybe they can help me deal with the all the knitting questions that I have (and that YouTube hasn’t been able to answer for me).
In other news…I baked cupcakes and a heart shaped cake today. My boss has a birthday today, and I felt like baking. Plus Safeway has a GREAT sale on box cake mix – if you buy 4 or more boxes, each box is only 88 cents! That is a great deal. Basically it will only cost abour $3 to make a cake – and there is LOTS you can do with those boxed mixes. Photos soon. (i think i always say that…and i rarely post photos. dang.)
