Where to start? Life has been crazy! Chris and I are moving from Malden to Jamaica Plain in late October, after I found an apartment... through a carpenter/mechanic I met at a pub. Not only will we live in a real neighborhood, with neighborhood bar, restaurants, groceries, and subway within short walking distance, we will also have a GRANDIOSE outdoor deck and some very creative housemates (a carpenter/motorcycle mechanic and his wife, who is a jewelry designer and artist).
This past weekend Chris and I went to the Lake Champlain islands in Vermont. Here's an idea of what we did:
Why no knitting pictures? I'm finishing up two really awesome new sweaters, one that will be available in December 2009 and the other for March 2010. Here are the buttons I chose for them on vacation...
Bone, found at a flea market in Waterbury, just down the road from the Ben & Jerry's factory (which we toured, of course). When the vendor saw me matching them up with Secret Sweater #1, she gave them to me for free (so sweet):
Plastic ("scoop" buttons), purchased from the Tinker's Barn antiques store in South Hero, Vermont:
Here's Chris outside Tinker's Barn:
Last thing! YARD SALE including BINS OF YARN will take place this Saturday from 8 am to 3 pm at my house in Malden, MA.

I HAVE WAY TOO MUCH YARN AND IT CAN'T ALL MAKE THE MOVE!
