Family Weekend

We’re traveling home from a weekend with my parents, and I’m writing this on my phone.please excuse any weird autocorrect mistakes. 🙂 

We’ve all had a good time at my parents’ house. This was Lollypop’s first time to visit them, and he was a little dubious at first, but he warmed up really well. Especially when Papaw was swinging him around and around. 

Jellybean got to play in the dirt, see Papaw’s workshop, read stories with Mimi, and get spoiled with bunny grahams, ice cream, tv and staying up late. 

We’re all tired, of course, as it goes when you travel, but it’s so worth it. 

I got to do a little bit of knitting. I had been participating in a design challenge, but I got stuck on step 3 of 5 and wasn’t able to concentrate on it enough to get past the hump. I will continue on with the challenge this week, thigh, and I may end up with a pattern out of it. 

I managed to finish block 9 of the Knitterati Afghan. This one wasn’t my favorite looking block, but it was actually quite fun to knit. 

There’s a lot going on in this one. Cables around the border, wraps, 5-stitch bobbles, 3-stitch bobbles, a 1-to-7 stitch increase and a 5-stitch decrease. It definitely kept my interest as I was knitting.

It still needs to be blocked, but I wanted at least one picture for my post today. I have blocks 7 and 8 finished and blocked, but of course I didn’t take photos of those before we left. (I was to busy getting us all packed!)

The next big item on my to do list is planning a first birthday party! I’m having so much fun planning this one, but trying to keep it small. I’ll tell you all about it in a few weeks! 

Have a great week, my friends!
