I'm overwhelmed by the feedback for my CdM socks. Thank you all so much! I've not been able to respond to everyone, so to those I've missed - THANKS!

I'm still in Philadelphia (and haven't even found time to go to a yarn store yet!), running around like a chicken with my head cut off, trying to make meetings, visit the library, see old friends, etc. It's a little overwhelming being here - the flood of memories, old friends, new faces. It's strange to not quite fit in to my old life and even strangers the way that habits stay in the body. I'm new now, and things have changed around me, but I find myself bizarrely falling in to old routines. I've been staying with my old roomate in our old apartment, and it has somehow tricked my body into old habits of movement -- ways to get to school, the bar, old friends houses (places where they no longer live). My mind has adjusted to my new enviroment and status, but my body is still on auto-pilot.

I've done next-to-no knitting, but will hopefully have US 0 needles (and maybe even a little wee bit of sock yarn) to show from this trip. More news when I return to the mountains.

Glad to hear you are doing well! It is so easy to fall back into old habits. I do the same when we go home to FL.

Hmmmm sock yarn??!!

Have a safe trip home!

I love living in the city, but I can remember enjoying journeys into the city more when I lived in the country... Enjoy the rest of your trip!

Is that why I'm always 17 at my parents' house?
