NO, please, you can still read my blog, it’s my comment about Stitch DC. What a disappointment! Our small town two LYS’s put this place to shame. Almost any place in the Pacific Northwest would for that matter. I didn’t even take my customary picture of the yarn store cause it would have put you to sleep.
Stitch DC on Capital Hill is the largest of the 3 Stitches stores. Open to 7 tonight but when we got there at 5:45 it was closed with a note saying back at 6pm so Rachel (Graham’s beautiful girlfriend) and I wondered around the neighborhood. Other good looking dinner prospects located at the Eastern Market Metro stop but we were going to eat later at Jaleo.
Ok nuff said there. Rachel took the metro down to my hotel and we left from here for our evening adventure. It was great to see her. She’s finishing up her finals and tests before gradutating with a degree in Political Science from George Washington University. She’ll start her masters in Public Policy in the fall. First stop was lame-o yarn shop. Next stop was the restaurant. When we got off the metro we noticed an art market set up on the sidewalk for a long block so we wandered around and oh’d and ah’d over things. We both bought matted photographs from an artist named Joe Shymanski.
Then on the Jaleo. The menu had many great tapas and other yummy’s. I would have ordered paella but it only came in a giant pan to serve 4… To make up for it, I chose Mussels!
Well time to pack. I’ll get more knitting done tomorrow. Maybe start on that next pair of socks. G’night.
