Capital City

We headed to Sacramento for Mother’s Day to treat my fiance’s mother to a nice afternoon downtown.  First, we headed to the Capital Mall for a stroll. There we saw the Vietnam Memorial, California Firefighter’s Memorial, the International World Peace Rose Garden, and the Capital Building. I had never visited this area so it was a lovely walk. Afterward, we went to a nice restaurant for a yummy lunch. 

 
Sacramento is about 2 hours away from San Francisco so I made sure to pack a car project. I am making some basic socks using the Double Magic Loop Method. I used Judy’s Magic Cast-On to begin the toes. I have tiny feet, therefore I started with 30 stitches and only had to increase to 62 stitches. I knitted about 2.5 inches throughout the day. I do not have a pair of handmade orange socks, so these will be a nice addition to my growing collection. 

I hope all of my USA readers had a lovely Mother’s Day!

Play Time!

Santa came to my house early! I received a new iPhone 5 S for Christmas and couldn’t be more happy. The bad news:  I have turned into one of those people who is obsessed with being on their phone. I tried out my new camera on a walk around the American River in Sacramento, CA.

Wishing those who celebrate a very Merry Christmas 🙂
