Welcome to Florida!

Hello everyone! Sorry for the lack of posting and emailing, but I have been on the road! My Dad and I finally made it to the sunshine state (right as it started to pour...hopefully it wasn't a sign). Sadly there were no yarn expeditions along the way, but I was able to fit all of my yarn into my car, which was more important than anything else. Not too much knitting has been taking place. I realized that I am much more of a sit at home in front of the tv knitter as opposed to one who knits everywhere. I tried to knit in the car, but with the sun and the movement of the car, oh and the fact that I need to do a bit a surgery with Twizzler, it didn't work out too well.

I did start the "Give It a Whirl Bag" from a relatively recent Creative Knitting Magazine. I need to do some surgery on the bag, but I don't mind. I started the project while waiting for my clothes to wash at a Holiday Inn and while knitting it I met a pilot and a flight attendant. They wanted to try their hands at knitting. All sorts of mistakes were created on the poor bag, but it was an enjoyable time all the same. Okay, it was mainly because the pilot was cute, so for all of you non-believers, you CAN get a date by knitting in public. ;)

Alright, to bed I go. Soon I will be reading emails and posting to blogs, but right now I am concentrating on moving.



  1. Hi, I'm glad to hear you guys arrived safely! Met any gators yet?

  2. Welcome home! Now you can start getting settled in, right?

    Glad you made it. How's the knitting been?
