Greetings from New York

I've arrived! I was thinking that once I had landed at JFK and had a chance to decompress, I would finally be able to get a hold of my feelings about the move. But this first week has been peaceful and underwhelming. I've shopped a little (for a suit for interviews), cooked, unpacked, and hung out with my new roommates. Nothing out of the ordinary. On July 4, my first full day in New York, I watched the walked around the lower eastside with Jeremy, ate pancakes in a diner, had a beer in a Irish pub, and then watched the East River fireworks from our apartment building with friends and roommates.


Tomorrow morning, Jeremy and I will go to the Statue of Liberty and officially ring in my immigration to New York with a tour. I'll post pictures later this weekend.


For some knitting content- look what arrived at the apartment today! Four colorways of laceweight merino and two colorways (2 skeins of one) from Handpaintedyarn.com. I treated myself to this stuff the other week, while on a packing break. I love the beautiful and unusual colors this stuff comes in. Smells a bit like vinegar, though....
