I made it to Washington DC on Monday after a little glitch with the airline...had to take a later flight, BUT got a couple of round trips out of it so thanks Air Tran. 

Yesterday, which was Tuesday, I felt the earth move....literally.  We had an earthquake here.  I am sure everyone has heard about it by now but I have to say it was pretty freaky.  I have never been in an earthquake before so now I guess I can say that I have been.  Hopefully it will be my last earthquake experience.  Luckily for DC it really did not do much damage and I don't think anyone was hurt.  Whew. 
Now we have a hurricane coming over the weekend...hmmm...hopefully won't be too intense....

Besides that I am having a fabulous visit so far.  I got to go to Looped Yarn Works yesterday.  This is a fabulous LYS on Connecticut Ave.
I met the dcmenknit group there.  I was very happy to get to knit with the gentlemen of DC!mendc
Hopefully I will be able to knit with them a couple more times before I leave.

I also picked up some wonderful yarn to knit the Baby Chalice Blanket.

This is Berroco "Vintage".  40% wool, 50% acrylic, 10% nylon.  Perfect for baby!

OK...That's all for now.
