Brick Alley Pub + Knitting

I'm currently in Newport. Yesterday was my five (!) year anniversary with my boyfriend, Mike. We went out to dinner and of course I took no pictures. His family goes to newport conveniently at the same time as our anniversary and today we went out to lunch at the Brick Alley Pub. I had lobster bisque (yum) and lobster mac and cheece (yum).

Mike's sisters got some nice stuffed cod (?) and a steak wrap.

And Mike got spicy buffalo chicken pasta and his mom got stuffed clams (with sausage in it, it was really good I had a bite!).

It was a really nice lunch. We did a bit of shopping on Saturday earlier and I got a nice necklace and earrings, and then just sat. I got alot of knitting done on my Through the Loops mystery sock, and I still haven't decided if I should start the other on other needles. Any opinions? Should just go with the clues and just knit one sock? I don't have a second pair of DPNs but I do have a slightly beat up pair of circs in the same size.

And my mom's sweater back is almost ready for the back armholes, I'm LOVING this texture.

Happy Anniversary!

I've been working my mystery socks two at a time on dpns. I have one set that I'm using, but I transfer the first on two a set of smaller needles. I'm on my second leg. If I don't knit them mostly at the same time, I'll never get the second one finished.
