Back From Vacation

We arrived at the airport in RI in the pouring rain on Saturday and my first thought was that Claudia was riding in this mess. And my second thought was wondering about the weather in NY and if everything went well for Cara’s Spin In. Thankfully Cara found an indoor site and the event went off fabulously. I’m hoping Claudia is resting up after her weekend.

Disney was fun as always – hot (well, duh, it is June) and tiring. My daughter loves the rollercoasters and she decided she wanted to go on the new one – Expedition Everest – 10 times. She went on it 11 and I ended up with a headache. She also loved being in the pool and at the water parks. I definitely need to get her into another session of swimming lessons. It’s scary when she keeps insisting to me that she is a strong swimmer. I know better.

I didn’t do as much knitting as I thought I would although I did drag my Trekking sock around with me and got several comments about it. Of course, I tend to over estimate the amount of knitting I will do and pack more yarn/projects than I need, but I'm sure you will agree, it’s better to be safe than sorry. But I did manage to sniff out probably the only fiber available for sale in Disney. There is a store in Norway (at Epcot) that sells the most beautiful and $$$ Dale sweaters. I drooled over those. They also had a Learn To Knit kit containing needles, 3 skeins of Dale yarn, instructions and patterns. I almost forgot about the Summer of Stash to buy it for my daughter – who already knows how to knit. Silly me, she has my whole stash as a Learn To Knit kit.

This morning I almost succumbed to some Vesper sock yarn but I decided I should be able to hold out until after Labor Day. Risa told me that roving was NOT included in the SOS. Yeah!!! I can buy roving or fleece. I think Risa may well be my savior. I admit it - I'm a fiber addict. Maybe I'll just head on over and see if that Vesper sock yarn is still available - it is so hard to get.

I didn't know Vesper was available on it's own website now. Thanks for the heads up, Lisa. Glad you had a good trip.
