I'm Outta Here!

Okay, last post for awhile. I'm outta here! I'm so excited, this is like my dream vacation. 2 whole weeks, on a beach, with my honey and all the knitting you could possibly cram into a vehicle! Here's some pictures for you.
I got this from Dave at Cabin Cove Merchantile. It's called Kaleidascope and it's going to become some Dave's Florida Keys Socks! I'm thinking a simple pattern so those beautiful colors pop!
My Bistrow sweater, finally put together and not orangy red, it's fire engine red . I'm not sure about this. I love the pattern, love the yarn, but for some reason everything I keep knitting seems too loose, like it was someone else's and got all stretched out. Might be the yarn, I did it with Lion Brands Cotton Ease. I'm not too fond of wool and besides, when do you need wool in the South? It's blocking, I'm pouting and I'll try it on when I get home. It's not going, I won't need it, it's 80 degrees down there.
This is what's going with me! Not the little Bearista, he's staying home with the Ponchette Bear to watch over my stash. The multi stripe bag has all the essentials. My KP circulars (should have bought that big bag they have!), stitch markers, stitch holders, scissors, you know, all that stuff you can't leave home without! The small white and green LL Bean bag is my car knitting for the trip down. That will become (I hope) a pair of Anemoi mittens in black and white. (Just looked up her web page and jeesh, she's got a pair someone made in red and black! May go change my colors, or take both, I love red and black!) Oh, and the straw looking bag, in front, is the other Lantern Moon bag I was supposed to show you a week ago that I also got at Little Knits (seems she's out of them). It's beautiful and has a really pretty green silk lining. Here's another picture of it. That'll be a shawl made with silk/wool yarn that's the size of dental floss. It's Shaefer yarns Trenna in the Water Lily colorway. I ordered it from Little Knits which is fast and has some great sales! And, last but not least, the pug bag holds my Chinese Vest from Folk Vests. Might work on it, might not. I'm going to stick with little things for awhile, and lace, gotta have some lace going. So, that's my stash that's going on vacation. Wanna know what it's all going in?
Our home away from home! We take Libby and Maggi so we have to travel by camper, which is so much fun and our campsite is right on the ocean! We'll get up in the morning and watch the sun come up and get to see the sun set at night on the other side of the camper. Can't beat that. The kitties will be taken care of by the Baby Girl and the Oldest Baby Girl so they'll be happy.

I'm not sure I'll be blogging while I'm gone but I'll be reading blogs when I have a chance. When you're married to someone who gets up at 4:30 a.m. you learn to keep yourself busy after 9:30 every night, so I'll have plenty of time then to keep up with what you're all doing. Get lots of knitting done and have a great two weeks. I know I will! I'm outta here!

Happy Knitting!

Thanks Beth! I'm so excited I probably won't get too much sleep tonight. You'd think I'd never been anywhere before. Talk to you later.

I think Baby Girl and Oldest Baby Girl should get to go next time! Y'all so deserve this trip together. Celebrate everything you have to be thankful for, and if you think your close to done celebrating that, celebrate being able to celebrate! What a life changing 8 weeks you've had. Enjoy every single minute of it. Soak up the sun, breath in all the fresh salt water air, and journal, journal, journal! I'll make scrap booking pages for you when you get back, you just take the notes!
Love you much!
Oldest Baby Girl!
