Weekend

Gone!! Were did the weekend go?!! We flew to VA on Saturday and have been visiting with my brother and SIL. Keith leaves tomorrow but I’ll be here for another 9 days or so. 

We got out mid day for a 6 mile walk … Probably a mistake because it’s pretty darn hot here!! I usually prefer to walk out the door rather than drive somewhere and walk so we left my brother’s house and walked to the Lion’s Bridge at Mariner’s Museum. We probably should have driven to the bridge and then walked the 5 mile trail – there would have been a lot more shade! Keith was pretty hot and when we got back to my brother’s, he turned the hose on himself to cool down. 

I’ve been working hard on the next hat and I think I’ve messed up too bad to save it. Somehow when I’d finished my decreases and was pulling my yarn through the last stitches, I dropped some stitches – thanks to a dark yarn, a light that wasn’t bright enough – I think I’ve wasted 3 days because the harder I tried to go back and pick them up, the worse I made it. I put it away for the night and tomorrow afternoon I’ll pull it out and see if it’s salvageable. If not, I’ll thank my lucky stars that it’s just 3 days of work versus a larger project!

I won’t be posting much the next week or so since I’m going to be busy with family. Nothing to worry about if I miss a few days.

    Family is and should be your priority. I hope you get to share love and fun with them and write when you get time even if that is when you get home to Tampa.

    My aunt lives right next to the Mariner’s Museum and walks the trail every day. Great tree cover, well maintained trail. The museum is a great place to visit too. Enjoy your time with family.

    UGH! I hate pulling out stitches although I have pulled out half a sock once because I had made mistakes. Bummer. I always need so much light to do the handwork. I’d love young eyes again!
