Back from Jamaica

After a week at the Sandals resort in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, we're home. We didn't take many pictures, but here they are...

It was fun - a royal pain getting there and getting out again, but better than hanging around VA for a week.

And there's knitting!

Circle of Friends blanket from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. Deceptive title, as I appear to be my own circle of friends...but I could have used some other people to make some of those 49 squares!

Now that I have other people's babies' knitting done, I started looking at some wee knitting of my own! I started a sweater by Kate Gilbert from the Interweave website, but I'm not sure about it. We'll see how it goes.

Next time - Ainsley's dance recital.

Love the blanket--you must have been sewing like crazy (and I know you said that you had been putting squares together as you went, but to have it finihsed and photographed--that is amazing!

Does this mean you are working on the Pea Pod Baby set from IK? I love that set (and thought about making it for Andra as well.....)

I got up this morning, brushed 4 inches or so of snow off the car. And now I have seen your vacation pics. I'm jealous. Great blankie too!

Nice to see you back! I'm very very jealous of your vacation--looks awesome. Someday I'll get back to the Caribbean. . .

Hey, I made your snowflake socks as my FIRST ever completed sock project--and I LOVE them!! The pattern was perfect--I learned all about sock construction from you. And now I'm using several books to concoct some toddler socks for a friend's daughter--picot edge (a first for me), rippled fan pattern for the leg & top of foot (also a first, from Sensational Knitted Socks). Consider yourself an official knitting muse. :-)

Hope to be able to get out to Panera soon to see you, and that growing belly!

Nice job on the blanket, Melanie! And your vacation looks wonderful. Good idea to get out and have fine before the big event....
