Spring Break Wrap-up

No sewing done last week Sad smile.  We all took a trip clear across the country to Seattle.

We did a lot of this (walking around the city):


One day of this (snow skiing at Snoqualmie Summit)


And, the highlight of the trip for me was finding this little gem:

knitting 301

Pacific Fabrics, FAB-YOO-LOUS!!  I didn’t spend much time there, but I did snag 2 pieces of poly charmeuse remnants from White House Black Market

What was the kids’ favorite thing?  This (the easily grossed-out should look away):



This is the grossest thing I’ve seen in quite some time.  This is a wall in an alley behind Pikes’ Place Market.  And, yes, that’s gum!  UGH!  Seriously GROSS!  Naturally, my kids thought it was the coolest thing they’d ever seen.  Go figure.

But, this is what a 10-hour round trip flight will get you:

knitting 300

The bottom ribbing is finished and one sleeve is almost done.  The pattern is Effortless Cardigan.  The yarn is Madelinetosh Vintage in the Celadon colorway.  I don’t know if I’ll finish this any time soon, it’s getting too hot and I’m ready to get some Summer things started.  Yesterday I started on a linen tank top:

knitting 299

I probably won’t get this finished any time soon, not with school winding down, and Summer around the corner, but I’m gonna work at it anyway. 

Up next, ya’ll know what’s coming this weekend????

Stitches South!!!

See ya’ll there!
