I have spent the last 5 days in Washington DC at a conference, which for most of the day means knitting. A colleague from another state found me to say I had inspired her and this year she brought her knitting. Yes. As a token of her gratitude she gave me this button:
I did get a break between sessions and walked over the Key Bridge to Georgetown and back. This is the river on a quiet weekday afternoon.
Unlike Sunday, the boat and paddle board rental place had very few customers.
So few, that as I hung over the bridge railing I watched the attendant entertaining himself. He made it all the way to the end of the dock.
I walked into Georgetown to find some better thread to hand stitch the rolled hem on my scarf. The fabric store listed on yelp and elsewhere had moved about 20 miles away. Oh well. I had attempted stay-stitching the edge before leaving home, without much luck. I used different tensions, even remembered to switch to a brand new silk-appropriate needle.
It still looked bad, so I gave up.
My hand sewing in the hotel room after a long day wasn’t much better, so when I get home I’m going to look for finer thread in a slightly darker grey. That’ll do it. Sure. No operator error on this end.
All advice welcome.
