Hey there.

The good news is that apart from that last incident (which I’ve mostly gotten over but still feel extremely stupid about sometimes), my trip to Boston and Rhinebeck was awesome.

The bad news is that I didn’t take any photos. Seriously, at all – I took like 2 photos of Boston, and 2 photos of the kitchen at the Rhinebeck house. Hmmm. Makes writing an interesting blog post kind of difficult!

Boston – lots of fun in the city with Vig, a longtime friend. He’s at MIT for a master’s program and hasn’t done that much of the historical/touristy stuff, so we did a bunch of that. Checked out Harvard Square (awesome bookstore!), ate panini subs and too many cannoli in the North End, and even managed to stumble upon the beginning of the Columbus Day parade while wandering around looking for a place to eat! We also walked most of the Freedom Trail, sat in the park, and walked back to the T through Beacon Hill, which was gorgeous.

Monday the 12th was Boston’s “Opening our doors” day, so we went to see the Mapparium and Isabella Gardner museum for free – both highly recommended! We walked all around that day and I took the photo above walking across the Mass Ave bridge. Pretty view!

Tuesday Ysolda arrived in town, so we went for pizza at Regina’s in the North End and more cannoli from Modern Pastry. They fill the cannoli to order, yummmmm. The rest of the week was sort of a blur of shopping for Bob parts, eating, more shopping, and just hanging out. Wanna see a behind-the-scenes of the now famous Bobsolda?



Rhinebeck recap in the next post! That gives me time to try and take photos of the yarn I bought, hmmmm.

    Can’t wait to see the pics! I unfortunately didn’t get to see Bobsolda in person. But, I find the pictures hilarious! Again, it was great meeting you. =)

    Ahh, Modern Pastry. Back when I used to live in the area my husband and I used to go and stand in line for hours on Christmas Eve for sfogliatelle – theirs is the only one that met my husband’s Italian grandmother’s standards!

    I’ve seen pictures of Bobsolda, but this is the first time I’ve seen it referred to as such – ha! Hilarious!!!

    I like Modern Pastry but I have a soft spot for this little bakery: Bovas. It is open 24 hours a day, which is unheard of in our city (gah, even the store 24s aren’t 24).

    Wow, love the composition of the bridge pic. Bobsolda! If I were to pick two designers/knitters to be BFFs with, you and Ysolda would be on top of my list!
