a quick post from Southern California where I am helping my parents celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary. The above photo is my parents, my 3 sisters, my brother, and me.
The next one is of all of us with our spouses, and significant others. And the last one of the 5 Losi "kids." My parents are a great source of inspiration and love.

Last night was the annual Stitch 'n' Pitch at the Mariner's game. The Eastside Stitchers were well represented with about 18 seats in the stadium.
Tonight was our regular Eastside Stitchers Meet up at Crossroads in Bellevue. It was a pretty small group. Maybe people were a bit "knit in public" weary after knitting at the ball game yesterday. It's interesting though, when Eastside Stitchers first started meeting at Crossroads 4 years ago, (or started back up since there had been a group before), a group the size of tonight's group would have been a big group! Anyway, who was there, and what were they knitting?

That's it. Small but excellent group.

Friday morning I got a text from GwenS, "I'll be at knitting today..." Wha??? I had totally forgotten Fiber Friday! I had taken my usual morning walk, but was just settling in to knit at home, so of course I gathered my knitting things and headed out to Crossroads to knit.
We had a nice size group at the round table under the skylight (the light is great in the day time there). And since I didn't post right after I got home (though I did go tutor immediately after), I have forgotten 2 of the projects! I'm hoping someone (GwenS) will pm or text me so I can update this post with all the names.
Caterpillargreen Yarn's MCN Fingering Self-striping. Yes, this yarn is self-striping shawl yarn.
Constance was starting a lace shawl.
So I know BlueBerryMary was there, and I can't remember if she was starting a new project:
I also have this photo of the 3 color cowl that CathieC has almost finished. It is not social knitting, as she is on the lace section, so she just brought it for Show and Tell.

Of course, I have been home since last Wednesday night, but not posting as I've been getting back into the swing of things, knitting, walking, knitting, tutoring, hanging out with friends and knitting. I just wanted to post some photos of my first walk back in Bellevue.
It's good to be home.

I can't believe (though you all probably can) that I forgot to take photos of my last Dinner in NYC. Anyway, Moogie and I went out for Japanese food to Nobu Next Door. It was a part of New York Restaurant Week, so since we had reservations, we ordered off a special lower priced tasting menu. We had 1 appetizer each 1 main course eaxh, and 1 dessert each. We had sashimi salad and really amazing shrimp tempura for the appetizers. For the mains, we had a sushi sampler and sliced wagyu beef. The desserts we're a lychee pan Cotta, and an amazing chocolate rice "cake.* It was a perfect ending to the day.
