vacation and toast

So a little vacation. (Actually, a big vacation.  Huge, really.)  A lot of driving.  
One of my favorite yarn rollers.  (aka : Libby)
Resulted in one pair of toast.
I had bigger plans.  4 projects in all packed away in my rather large suitcase.  But all I knit was a pair of toast.  I'll take it though.  And those were popped in the mail today to keep some special wrists warm.

What also happened today?
Back to school happened today.  SO hard to believe.

As I've commented before, there is nothing like Toast! The yarn you chose is perfect.

(Of course, I am also a fan of Toasty and Those Mitts.)

Loving the colour of the yarn. How I wish I was knitting by the sea.

How wonderful! That is quite possibly my favorite area of my dear state, and we're hoping to take a family trip there soon! Anyway, looks like a wonderful trip. And the Toast are pretty, too! :)

Had great knitting plans for my vaycay and managed to forget the small ones as well as my whole knitting kit (markers, darning needles etc) so ended buying sock yarn and double points in the only knitting shop on Cape Breton (Baddeck) Still working on the first sock and haven't touched the big projects. Funny how that works.

Knitting in the summer sunshine. I love it.

Love the color - matches the sea! Why do we knitters pack so many projects to knit and/or so many books to read while on vacation? I'm guilty - I only get to a fraction of it! Glad you had a wonderful vacation and hope your kids have the best school year yet!
