I have determined that Home takes on new meaning when you’re an adult. Is home the place you grew up or the place you live now? Both, but that might make for confusing reading of a blog post.

Monday Bunny and I drove home where we visited my parents. There was fun, knitting, and celebrity sightings! Thomas wasn’t allowed out of the shed till the week-end, which was just fine with Bunny who is strangely frightened of Thomas (ok, maybe it’s not strange to be afraid of a train with personality, but he has no problem with other inanimate objects with personality).

There was also yarn shopping at a great store in Bird-In-Hand called Labadie Looms. She had a fabulous collection of fine yarns as well as a lot of roving and weaving supplies. I think it may become a regular stop on trips home. I bought some hand dyed superwash for myself and some for my SP.

I also got some supplies for a Super Secret Summer Project that I’m quite excited about!

Bunny has stayed on with Grandma and Papa while I returned home. Life without child is nice for a while! B and I will head back up tomorrow evening to visit and pick up Bunny and we will head home Sunday. In the mean time, enjoy my Broadripple. One done since this photo, one to go. The current distraction is a pair of knee socks for an American Girl Doll, a gift for a birthday party on Monday, wish me luck on that idea…


  1. That sock looks great! What pretty colors.

  4. The socks look awesome! I love my broadripple that I made from the Fixation. You still have one more package coming, but I ordered something for you and it has gotten lost in the mail. So, while the post office confirms the package is lost and I await the new arrival of my order, your package may be another week or two.

  5. Neat looking sock! Looks like a fun one to knit.

    I always preferred Percy to Thomas, myself. Of course, I was older enough to be watching the show for Mr. Conductor’s humor, and not the trains, so that might have had something to do with it.
