B is currently away in New York taking the bar exam, and so despite the fact that I live with about nine of my in-laws I'm kind of on my own in some ways. B is not a huge fan of sushi, and he certainly doesn't mind when I eat it, but it's not something I can really share with him so I tend to eat it on nights when he's away. Yesterday afternoon I began craving sushi, and so I walked to the nearest Kowalski's and purchased a chef's sampler.
I forgot to take the picture before I started eating, so four pieces of sushi are already missing from this photograph. Oh man, I love my sushi. It's more expensive here than in New York City, but it was certainly just as delicious, if not more.
After that I spent the rest of the night knitting and watching the last season of Sex and the City. It was a really nice hermit night for me. I haven't posted much about my knitting because I feel that I am very much still a beginner and it doesn't make much sense to show off my knitting at a beginner's level. But I recently finished a shawl for my grandmother and I'm quite proud of it. It's a very simple lace pattern, but I think it's the most complicated pattern I've ever worked on and the largest item I've ever completed. Here's some detail from it.
I'm working on a second one in a nice wine color because I'm weird and I really like to make two of everything I knit. Probably because the second one usually turns out better than the first because I know what I'm doing by that point.
