Down the homestretch

OK, I don't have much time because I need sleep. Tomorrow I'm going to be spending a bazillion a good 16 hours on the road. But I just gotta show you this.

Old Senate Chamber, Maryland State House
Where George Washington resigned his commission on December 23, 1783.

Can't see? Look a little closer...


It's a half finished object! While our guide was reciting the last few sentences of Washington's resignation speech, I was finishing the final row of the toe on this lovely sock. Talk about timing, huh? (I had hoped to finish the first sock before we returned to Boston.) The most amazing part of this sock--I completed it in 8 days! A record for me!!!

I just need to graft the toe and weave in the end and I'll have half a pair! Woo-Hoo!!!

OK, now that I've had a chance, to share it's off to bed for me. We've got a long day tomorrow...
