We had a great ski trip to Big Sky, Montana. After the day of 15-20 inches of snow, the skiiers had a fabulous week! I was head cook. My sister was head dish washer, along with the kids. One niece was head green smoothie maker. The two dads supervised all of the skiing and snowboarding, and the kids kept the hot tub occupied.
Before we left yesterday, I t
hreatened sweetly asked the kids for a family photo.
I still have this picture in my head of five little people. This photo is almost shocking to me. They’re turning into amazing human beings. Loud and opinionated, but amazing.
There was some knitting on the trip, between playing chef. I finished Brickless.
Was spun into this yarn (In April 2011):
And was wound into this ball:
And became Brickless by Martina Behm:
This is a wrap that is so very easy to knit. It was also very enjoyable because of all the color changes. When I looked at the skein of yarn, I thought it would be bright and obnoxious. Now that it’s finished, I really like it! I’m pretty sure it will be a spring staple with my jean jacket.
I also had an opportunity to visit another small yarn shop, right at the ski resort in Big Sky. It’s called CR.eations 2. I think the shop was 12 x 12. It’s probably the smallest shop I’d ever been in, but it was extremely neat, and packed with gorgeous yarn!!! I’ve already started one project with yarn purchased from Christine. I bought yarn for three projects, and could have easily gotten yarn for three more. She and I had a lot of fun! She also has an etsy shop!
My reality today is pretty great. It’s silent in my house!!! My only goal today is to unpack my suitcase and make dinner. I shouldn’t be tired after a vacation, but I am.
I’m off to see what is hidden in the freezer. I really don’t want to go to the grocery store today.
