This week of vacation just flew by. Though the wedding was the big day, there was plenty going on before and after that this week.
Last Saturday, my sister and I drove up to Santa Rosa to do her final dress fitting. Technically, she drove, and I knit, knit, knit. I had cast on my shawl Friday evening. It grew as we went over the Golden Gate Bridge.
The yarn is the lovely Anzula Cloud, and it is heavenly, and available at WEBS (shouldn't have clicked on that link...such pretty colors!). My first time using it and it won't be my last! The shawl grew some more as I watched the Olympic Trials. I can't wait for the Olympics! Just. Can't. Wait!!
I think this is where I stopped Sunday evening, after a marathon of watching the BBC show, Spooks, or on Netflix, it is called MI-5.
Wow! Love this show, although the way they kill off some of their main characters is heartbreaking! I would not have finished this shawl if it weren't for Seasons 1-3!
Monday was mani-pedis! My sister was happy and calm and if the wedding went anything like Monday and the rehearsal dinner, we knew it would be a good day. And it was!
No need for a picture of all the furious knitting that happened Monday, in between rehearsal dinner and sleeping for a few hours.
Fast forward to 4th of July....after sleeping in..yay!!! A bunch of us got together for a BBQ to send off Thayer as she is getting married and moving to Australia!!!!!! So excited for her, but so so sad to see her go.
Yeap, I still have wedding hair in that picture :)
Alexis is jamming on her Honey Bunches! Have you started yours yet?
Sangria, peach cobbler, and knitting. My kind of BBQ!
This morning we said goodbye to the beach, headed to Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, and now I'm home in my own bed. Awwww.....
How was your weekend? Anything new on the needles?
