Our day in Boston

I soooo  want to be knitting the Mystery shawl, but fun things keep getting in the way! Yesterday Mike and I took Emmet into Boston. The weather was gorgeous and we were itchin’ to do something we don’t normally do. We started out the trip by sitting in a really cool chair at Evan and Melissa’s house:

Then we went into Boston Common and enjoyed the park. Evan and Emmet found a really different tree.

I don’t know what kind of tree it is but I want one at my house.

We watched the Swan boats and Emmet threw some popcorn he found on the ground to the ducks.

We saw some American flags for Memorial day. Lots of them.

And we took a ride on a carousel!

Take a look at the name of the pub!

Emmet was very excited to see his name on the building.

And all this excitement made for one VERY tired little boy. A little boy who had skipped his nap that day.

And could no longer stay awake, not one more moment. Emmet loves this stroller and stopped me from selling it at a garage sale a few weeks ago. Good thing!

Today there will be a cookout, and then HOPEFULLY some serious shawl knitting when I get home tonight.

Greatest. Deal. Ever.

I befriended Better Save Than Sorry on Facebook. She finds deals all over the place and posts them for everyone to take advantage of. She also has her own blog. Well, on May 19th she posted a great deal on Heartsy for The Sunrise Fiber Co. I took advantage of the deal, bought a $20 voucher on Heartsy for $8, and got another $5 off for going through Better Save Than Sorry’s FB page. Withing minutes of receiving the voucher, I had picked out my yarn on Sunrise’s Etsy shop. I picked this:

That’s right people, a $20 skein of yarn for just $3….and free shipping!! Sunrise wasted no time getting it out to me and it’s so pretty! And super soft. Now I just have to decide what to make with it.

Second chart is done!
