We are back and feeling like celebration. Of course, we are also tired. We have started the journey with a goal of obtaining three documents. I am happy to report that we got two out of three, and the third one will be mailed out to us.
Of course, I had a fiber goal too. I wanted to see how much would I be able to knit up while DH drove. The answer is quite a lot. The combination of bigger glasses, a good audio book and lots of yarn reduced my car sickness to minimum. Since I get really snarly when I am car sick, DH too had a much pleasant journey this time.
So on the way from New York to the Historic Trenton I was working on my “new to be felted” slippers. Big needles, thick yarn. I have finished a gusset on both of them. I have also Cast On for the Fingerless Mitts for my wonderful friend Maggie.
I heartily recommend the City Hall in Trenton to all who might need a City Hall. There was no metal detector, no burly cops, no line. The room we needed was large and clean and had more that the usual N.Y. 4 chairs per 20 people. Actually it had a lot of chairs and no line. As in empty. It took us under 10 minutes to finish our business. The people were pleasant and polite. DH wanted to see the Military Barracks Museum, but by the time he definitely decided that he wanted to see it we were past the turn off.
We were planing to go from Trenton to Philadelphia’s City Hall. But when I called them I was told that they would not be able to help us because they only had a skeleton crew on duty. So we should come the next day at 9 a.m. So we got to have a nice visit with my parents and my sister and her kids. We also managed to take some finished project photos.
