We were sorry to leave but we weren't as sad as my nephew was to be going home yesterday morning:
It was good to get home and see the pup. It was hard to leave him for a week but he had a great time at Grandma Camp (thanks to Trudy, Sam, Molly and all the neighbors that came to visit him and make sure he wasn't too lonely without us!). And now it's back to the crummy not-so-summerlike weather of the Pacific Northwest and the grind of work but regardless, it's still always good to come home. Now I can get some knitting done on my Traveling Miralda...here's the NY portion of my latest WIP:
|Madelinetosh Lace in Thyme|
I'm loving everything about this project ~ the pattern is challenging and interesting and I love working with this yarn again. I'm excited to get this one done and blocked (when am I not excited about this?) to see how it looks in a laceweight yarn on bigger needles. What do you think?
