Congratulations girlfriend!

Hey girlfriend, this post is for you! Congratulations to my friend Jess who graduated from nursing school today. Now you can spend more time knitting!

I knitted this sweater some time ago, it is my own design. Though I swatched and thought I had a good handle on my guage, the sweater is considerably longer than I had intended it to be, coming all the way to the bottom of my hips. It was a little chilly on Monday morning, so I wore this to yoga class. When I visited the local yarn shop after yoga, I was pleasantly surprised when the sales clerk complimented my sweater. On my walk back to the car, two ladies stopped to admire my sweater, and one of them asked me where I got the pattern. WOW, that made me feel really good.

Today, I took a walk across the Riegelsville
bridge, a steel suspension bridge built in 1904 by the John A. Roebling Company, who also built the Brooklyn Bridge. It was a beautiful day and I enjoyed the walk, which took me from Pennsylvania to New Jersey in less than five minutes.
