Back from Vacation!

For those who do visit my blog, you’ll note that I haven’t posted in awhile. My husband and I just got back from a glorious trip to Greece. While a 10-hour plane ride each way provided some knitting time, the hot weather during most of the trip did not allow for lots of progress on any of my projects. But with a view like this from our hotel, who was thinking about knitting?

I did finish my “Think Pink” scarf and mailed it off so that a breast cancer survivor will have it by September, and I made some progress on my lovely Maple Leaf socks on the plane. Now that I’ve caught up with the piles of regular mail, email, and laundry, I will get back in the knitting groove.

I had a business trip to Philadelphia yesterday and made time to visit Rosie’s Yarn Cellar. I have always wanted to visit this shop, having read their blog as well as listening to the Podcast of Knitty D and the City, who visit Rosie’s often. I bought their Half Pi Shawl Pattern, which is now pretty famous, and will make it out of some awesome Adirondack Yarn Company Silk Noir, in a cool colorway called “Chagall,” that includes hot pinks, dark blues, dark purples. Check it out here:

A few projects to finish before I dare cast this on, but I can’t wait!
