Where In The World...

Where've you been?? Oh wait, you're not the one that's been absent, it's been me. I meant to get a post up on Sunday but got caught up in making preparations for my trip. What trip? Glad you asked. My trip to Florida. I am currently in my jammies in one of the guest rooms in my favorite aunt's house (shhhh...don't spread that around - I have other aunts who don't know they're not my favorite). Aunt D. is the best. She also happens to live in Florida, which gives her double points because I don't have to go someplace cold in order to see her. Add to that the fact that my partially frozen mom in Ohio is fleeing the cold and snow and flying into Orlando tomorrow to spend several sunny and frostbite-free weeks here. Aunt D. and I will be waiting for her at the airport, assuming I don't get lost on the way there - a situation that has not happened previously, although I HAVE managed to get lost on the way BACK to Aunt D.'s from said airport. Stop laughing, you know you've taken a wrong turn at least once. Anyway, I'm only here for a few days, but I always enjoy my time at Aunt D.'s.



Of course, I brought my knitting and while I didn't make any progress today, I did manage to get some stuff accomplished in the last few. First, my little miracle baby hat is finished! Isn't it cute? I'm so happy that it actually turned out well and that I can now say I have finished a project on DPNs.

It's a bouncing baby girl hat!
Next, I have managed to add some inches to The Husband's sweater. I've made my way to the second color stripe. I think I may actually have this finished before the chilly season is over. Yay!
Incidentally, if the layout of this post is ridiculously off, I'm blaming my iPad. I didn't want to lug my laptop with me and this thing consistently gives me a hard time when inserting photos into my blog posts. You have my sincerest apologies. I also apologize for the pictures once again. I thought I was being smart by bringing The Husband's nice camera with me until I realized half way here that without my laptop, I have no way to actually get the photos off of the memory card. So, yeah. I'm a dork.

  1. I hope you're warm and having fun in FL! It's -2F in Chicago today, so I am very jealous!!! The hat is very adorable! And, the progress on the sweater is fantastic! I love watching color changes! I think they're great motivation to keep working.

    3. Brrr! Too cold! Mom got here fine and was not particularly heartbroken to leave the single-digit temps!

  2. I laughed, despite the fact that I once turned the wrong way onto a one-way in downtown San Diego.
    Also - the format definitely does look good. I am so excited by the hat, by the way!

  3. Enjoy the hot, hot, heat! I am escaping the brutal cold next week to find some warmth. And I can't wait to knit my brains out! Looks like you are doing just the same... Enjoy!

    1. If only it was hot, hot, heat! It's actually been cooler than normal, but I hate to complain because it is still SO much warmer than up north!

      I've almost finished another baby hat! : )
