We had a great time in Florida, but I’m happy to be back.  I met up with old friends…

And Marc proved again what a giant kid he will always be…


Which is of course why I love him.  Aww…

I didn’t get a whole ton of knitting done because I was super busy, but I did get 16″ of the back finished on the Dollar and a Half cardigan.  2 more before I start shaping!  Please ignore the cat, he can’t be separated from me after being mostly alone for a week.

I must say that I love this pattern so far.  The changing textures never give you the chance to be bored.  And the Cotton Fleece continues to surprise me – I thought I wouldn’t like it since I didn’t like the other wool/cotton I’ve tried (KP Mainline) but it’s just lovely to work with.  And the best part?  My hands don’t hurt at all.

Have you seen this new free pattern from Berroco?  I just love it, and I’m not usually a huge fan of their patterns.

I came home to 2400 unread Bloglines posts, so I apologize if I’m a bit slow responding.  I’m glad to be back.  I like traveling, but I get tired of being unsettled after awhile.

We’ll go to a few weddings soon, but our next trip will be our honeymoon.  We’re planning on a small trip after the wedding, and then taking a longer trip overseas later.  I’m taking suggestions on nice places to go that are in the US.  I don’t like the beach at all (I can’t swim, I don’t tan, and I don’t love the heat) so I’m having a hard time getting good ideas.
