I really wish I hadn't run out of time, because I wanted to tell you that the "Ties That Bind" blanket was finished... BEFORE MAUI. (yay!)
It needs a light blocking still which is why I haven't done a proper photo shoot. But if someone were to hold a gun to my head tomorrow and say "GIFT THIS BLANKET"- I could. Which is good, because after being pretty late, Mr. Marcus finally showed up on March 18.
I had a whole post to explain the insanity that nearly took hold of me when I nearly committed to knitting a lace shawl on my vacation. Thankfully though, after a disasterous attempt at starting the shawl, I decided I better stick to a vacation sock. As usual I packed way more yarn than I needed and barely knit anything.
It's hard to pay attention to a sock, (even a boring one), when you could be looking at this.
Did I also mention there were whales? And if you looked away for even a second you missed the whales jumping out of the water? So yes... very little knitting on vacation. (It seems I don't really knit on my vacations even though I leave believing I will knit everything 10 times faster than I normally do and RUN OUT OF YARN.)
Also.... this munchkin is BUSY and all eyes need to be on him when he's moving around or else trouble will prevail. (He's a cute beach bum isn't he?)
Fear not- we are home now and I'm trying to hammer home our regular schedule. (Maui is 4 hours behind Calgary... child is miserable today- pray for all of us!) Regular schedule means KNITTING somewhere in there! I've got the rest of March to do whatever I'd like- which probably means I'll pull out the sock yarn blankey for a bit. BUT- April 1, I begin a new project. It's probably going to land me in the "more than I can chew" category- but it's my attempt at a Stampede project to enter for this year. Here's the hint....
