Homely Living Room

BookcaseShelvesI’ve been living at my apartment in Cambridge for five months now. It is nice to think that I will not have to move for at least a year. My place is finally feeling like home. At other places I lived I would spend most of my time in my room, but at this place the living room feels like my own and I enjoy spending time there. I’m very happy too that my orchid is blooming like crazy!DSCN9297

My First Scarf

This past week I finished knitting my first scarf! I learned how to knit from YouTube videos back in November and have been working on it slowly since then. Because I didn’t want to do a standard stitch, I tried the Bamboo stitch which creates little columns into which I wove white yarn at the very end. It was a lot of fun but I think I’m going to put away my knitting needles until next winter because it is too good a procrastinating activity!
