And it was a good vacation, from start to finish.
Lots of visiting. Lots of laughing.
Things were seen. Places were viewed. Photos were taken.
Food was eaten. Slippers were gifted (and all but one pair fit).
A terrific amount of plane knitting occurred.
Tomorrow it's back to my routine. But!
Spring (and the garden) is a bit closer, and when I got home...
My first issue of Interweave Knits was awaiting me...
And Molly! Why...whoever could be Molly?
It's Molly, the Marvelous Matchless. New to me, she arrived Saturday, the day after I left, and has been cooling her heels at the post office until Wonderful Guy could retrieve her on his return from the job yesterday. (I may have sort of implied that he needn't bother picking me up from the airport if he didn't make it to the PO first...maybe...)
I unpacked her last night to ensure she arrived intact, then set her up this morning and spun some. Oh my goodness.
Fun fun fun! I barely tore myself away to let KitKatKnit (who generously let me have first crack at buying her) know she arrived safely, and to post here about my new friend.
Now, sadly, I must post that Betsy, the flying Lendrum is for sale. Sniff. She's been a good and true friend, but I cannot, I will not, start collecting wheels. Off to Ravelry I go.
(PS If one is interested, Betsy is 3 years old, and has been lovingly used. Comes intact with all parts, plus 3 extra bobbins (orig 16.50 each). I will include oil and roving as well. I have the original paperwork (such as it is) and the original box for shipping. I am asking $450, plus shipping.)
