As I mentioned, we are staying home for vacation this year (please don’t say I’m having a staycation – I’m really tired of hearing this). We have been trying to find some different things to do – so the other night, we went to see a minor league baseball game. And we had a great time! I’ve never been to a baseball game other than the kids little league games, and I had no idea how much fun they could be – and the food! Every kind of junk food you can imagine. Gotta love that! The game was good,and the night ended with spectacular fireworks. We had such a good time we just may do it again….
We’ve also been golfing (well, Larry has been golfing – I’ve been swearing and losing balls), and swimming, and napping….and relaxing and I’m very glad I’m off work this week.
I’ve also been doing a little vacation spinning …
This is BFL from SakinaNeedles – the colorway is Popsicles. It is about 190 yards of sportweight….I really enjoyed spinning this, but I had the worst time plying it – it broke several times, and I have to admit to knotting it. I plied it from a center pull ball, and I think I just couldn’t get the tension right. But I’m pleased with it, and love the colors – very summer-y. Perfect for vacation!
I am almost done with Swallowtail! I finished the charts with nupps – and I have to say that looking back at it, I sort of enjoyed them. In a really sick twisted way, I know. But I love the way they look. I have about a chart and a half (or 20 rows) to go – I should finish that in a day or two. And now that I’m near the end of it, I’m starting to think about what next….maybe Flower Basket Shawl? Or Honeybee Stole?
Tomorrow I’m going to go to lunch and Down Cellar with Chris (just to look at the new store – no yarn buying! Well, not a lot of yarn buying…). Chris has been on a real vacation, and I’m looking forward to seeing her. I’m also getting my hair cut – which I’m really excited about – it is definitely overdue.
OK, off to knit – have a great Wednesday!
