Last weekend we took a trip with the in-laws. As a Christmas gift, they took our family and Husband’s brother’s family to a water park resort in Wisconsin Dells, a touristy area of Wisconsin about 45 minutes from where we live.
It is a fun family time, Kiddo loves having the time with his cousins. Even with the water parks and the kiddo chasing, I was able to find some time for knitting.
During evenings and quiet times while we were at the cabin, I worked on my Stone Layers shawl. I ended up ripping it out and starting over, this time changing needle sizes between the garter and slipped stitch sections. I didn’t want to do it, but it had to happen. It was a good call though, and now I’m moving along at a pretty good pace again. I’ve completed the first five of the contrasting color sections. I’m hoping to have it done in the next couple of weeks, but there are a lot of stitches left to knit.
While out and about, I worked on the Roundabout socks. The resort had a wonderful indoor play area. It worked out great, Kiddo got to play and I got some sock knitting in. I’m just about done with the foot of the first sock. I’m super happy with how well the pattern and the yarn are working together.
All in all, it was a good weekend. I think I’ve knit more so far this year than I did all of last year. That makes me happy.
I also found, tucked in the bottom of my knitting bag, the yarn labels from my Roundabout socks and my Padfoot socks. Now I am able to identify the yarns I’m using on both of those projects.
