the almost-boston sweater

I just finished binding off the collar of my black Terra sweater – the one I didn’t manage to finish before heading off to Boston.

I love it so much! It still needs a gooooood washing/blocking (the black came off a bit on my hands and needles), and when it hits the water it’ll relax a bit as well. I did a couple of additional hip increases on this one, so it actually fits over my beer-and-cheese belly without stretching out over the back.

More notes and finished photos once I’ve done a load of sweater laundry.

I spent all of last week in Boston, exploring, meeting up with friends, and eating. The weather was good for the most part – a little dreary during the week, but totally beautiful on the weekend. I spent a couple hours at the Museum of Fine Arts on a drizzly day:

I carried my camera around a lot, but I didn’t really take any other photos – like of biking around, exploring Porter Square, Jamaica Plain and the South End, and meeting up with people for drinks and Alice in Wonderland. I did, however, manage to take a few photos of food I made while there! Mmmm, food. (I didn’t make the Boston Cream Pie, that was from Flour Bakery!)
