Off we go…

Filed under: General,Knitting — by bethc @ 8:58 pm

I’m posting tonight because tomorrow evening I will either be crazy packing or will be off to Sweet Life Knitters, we shall see what the day brings. Friday morning, after I have a crown put on my tooth, we will head to Baltimore to board the Grandeur of the Seas! But, I’m getting ahead of myself.

We had a nice visit from my cousin and her baby Hanna (recipient of this and this). I was glad that they could come while Hanna’s daddy was traveling, but having a 10-week-old in the house reminded me why we are a “one and done” family! The photo shows Bunny holding Hanna and has been dubbed, “Cousins with Binkies” certainly one for the baby books.

I did my best to keep everyone busy while they were here. We managed a trip to the zoo and one to Baltimore to meet up with my parents so they could meet their grand-niece.

Bunny enjoyed the zoo so much we went back again today despite the 90+ heat. The nice thing about living close is we can go for an hour and leave. I think my new favorite animal may be the Sloth Bear.

There has been knitting going on in addition to baby rocking and burping. I am close to the toe decreases on my second Broadripple and I have cast on and gotten about 15 rows into a Shedar. Not like I needed a new project, but a cousin of the best father-in-law in the world is battling cancer. It’s not clear if chemo is in the plan, but I figured I better get knitting.

Much of my “knitting” time has been spent on Ravelry. I have gotten in all of my 2007 projects so far as well as part of my stash. The rest will have to wait till July when Bunny is in camp all day.

As alluded to earlier, we’re off on vacation. A nine-night cruise to New England and Canada. I’m looking forward to it and am working on my knitting list for the trip. I’ll certainly take and finish the Broadripple socks and hopefully finish the Shedar as well. I bought some chenille to make a gift with and will take that as well. I think that instead of taking Bunny’s raglan I will take something new, perhaps that new alpaca and the Shetland Triangle pattern. I also need something semi-mindless. I wonder if the Chevron Scarf would fit that bill?

Hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July, we will celebrate it in Canada 🙂 “See” you all when we return.

  3. Thanks the lovely people at, the final component of your package arrived last week. I sent your final package this weekend, so look for a surprise later this week.

    Have a great 4th. I’m looking forward to staying at home knitting the day away, which in my recent life will be a change.
