Today is the first official day of my vacation. I took one week off to relax, knit and spend time with the kids. My hubby didn't take time off, so we are on our own. When I say kids, I really mean my little one's, although they are not that little any more. They are 13,and 11. My older two are 18 & 19 and if you have teenagers, you know they want to spend time with their friends.
I did get a lot of knitting time in over the weekend. Tivoli is coming along and I started Branching out. I've wanted to knit a lace project, specifically the 2 lace scarves and flower basket shawl, but I thought I should start with something smaller with an easier pattern to get the hang of it. So far it's coming along nicely. I do have one brewing issue, my hands are very sore. I'm taking motrin and tylenol to help with the pain in hopes that I can continue knitting. I guess my hands are not used to so much knitting... bummer. I guess I'll have to pull out my stash of romance novels if the pain gets worse.
I'm planning my yarn store trek on Wed or Thurs. Many stores are closed to day and I want to hit as many as possible when I go. So, this morning I think I'll do some school uniform and supplies shopping. I'll take the kids to see Charlie and the choc factory later, and then come home relax and knit. Yea that sounds like a good plan.
Here's my progress on Tivoli and Branching out.
