Ok, it's been a long time. It's been really crazy lately. I've been working lots, well, except for last week, and school has been crazy. Last week I went for a Box family vacation. My parents took all of us to DC and Williamsburg, VA for 9 days. They rock. We had a blast. There were 12 of us there. I got lots of good pictures and will post some soon. I went to a couple of yarn stores too while I was gone. I got enough Blue Sky Alpaca for the herringbone poncho from last minute knitted gifts from Knit Happens in DC. Kristine, the owner, was very nice and she has a lovely shop. She went above and beyond the call of duty to find out how much yarn I would need for the project. I also got a Fiddlesticks pattern for a great lace triangle scarf and the yarn to make it. I don't recall exactly what that is right now, but it's gorgeous.
I also went to Knitting Sisters in Williamsburg. They carry a lot of the same yarn we have in the store, so I didn't buy any yarn there, but I did get this cute black sheep keychain. They were really nice too.
I loved our vacation. We got lots of wine from the Williamsburg Winery (we took a tour and did a wine tasting), some awesome oxyx goblets from the Museum of Natural History, and lots of wonderful memories. I'm really excited about putting together our video and me doing my first scrapbook. At least I want to do one, we'll see if that actually happens.
Ok, must go. I've gotta figure out my paper for the week and start a baby gift for my friend Amy, who just had her first daughter Dorie. Congrats David and Amy!
