Good to get out of town

We got out of town for the weekend! With all the driving, to Providence, Newport, Boston, and back, I finished my first pair of socks (except for some ends that need to be sewn in). They're some kind of mainly blue wool. Can't say more, since I lost the ballband back on the first sock. (4/7 - I think it was Trekking.)
After finishing the socks, I picked up the Reid lacy kid's sweater in this peach-colored Patons cotton yarn. It's a 16-row repeat pattern, and a bit of a pain. Also picked up some gold Soysilk Pure from A Stitch Above, in Providence, on the store's last day. Three skeins will make a baby sweater for another one of this year's babies.

In Providence, we stopped by H.P. Lovecraft's grave, in Swan Point Cemetery, a lovely place.

This large marker is the monument for H.P.L. and his parents. Fans put in a smaller stone just for H.P., but the light was against me in getting a good shot of that one.

Another Swan Point monument.
And the ocean! So good to just sit with the sight, sound & smell of it.
