WiP It Wednesday and a Stitches Recap

First of all, here is my Mr. Greenjeans in progress:

Mr Greenjeans 10.17

I'm making good speed on the second sleeve - I only have about 15 rows before I start on the cuff cabling. I have been reading a few people's blogs on how they are modifying the sweater to for the ribbing - I'll let you know what I decide.

My friends Michelle, Patti, Denise, and Kathy and I all went down to Baltimore this past weekend and had a wonderful time. It had its odd moments, though - like getting stuck in traffic due to the Baltimore Marathon next to a Bimbo-mobile:

Oddly enough, the same bear was on the back but without the curly moustache.

And here are some of the runners:

Baltimore Marathon

I have no clue who won the race - but I honestly hope that next year's Stitches East is not on the same weekend as a marathon!!! There were so many streets that were shut off and I don't think they shut off the streets with enough notice - so many cars were caught between streets with nowhere to go and people were starting to get angry...

Here was the view from our hotel room:

View from Hyatt 1

The eleventh floor of the Hyatt - I highly recommend it ;) We even saw some of the Rams football players in our hotel Sunday morning... apparently our knitting mojo didn't rub off on them...

Wow, you had a great view! Your Mr. Greenjeans has inspired me to give it a go so I can't wait to see how it comes out!

Ah yes, Bimbo. I thought that was just a very-close-to-Mexico state thing. Guess not!

What a cool trip!
