I traveled to Des Moines yesterday to watch my good friend graduate law school. It ended up being an incredibly short trip (it took about 4 1/2 hours to get there) since I turned around to come back for a bachelorette party at Second City in downtown Chicago Saturday night (4 hours and 15 minutes on the way back). During my travels, I finished one of the Clessidra socks, which I was enormously excited about and strut about the room wearing it. Here it is without the ends weaved in. I still need more yarn to finish the second. Darn!
The travels to Iowa were fun. It’s been a long time since I’ve voyaged across the state lines and I missed the trip (considering I used to venture there a lot with college and all). Now it was like a vacation, instead of a mandatory stay. It felt different.
You can’t get a better trip than that!
