Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn



What is the OBX?  I didn’t know either, until this trip.  It’s this…

The Outer Banks of North Carolina.  Right now there are about 10 people out there.  In a few minutes there will be 4 more.  The teenagers are still sleeping.

Here’s My Hero in his office.  Internet is a wonderful thing!

And yes, there has been knitting.  Miles and miles of mindless stockinette, which seems to be all I have the brains for right now.  My Eyelet Cardi is coming along nicely.  I just need to decide how long to make it.  The pattern is really short, and I’d like it a bit longer.

I was knitting this last evening and I had brown capris on.  I liked the two together.  I think this is a sweater I’m going to get a lot of use out of.  I’m debating doing a picot hem.  I like the finished look it would give it.

I just wanted to thank everyone for all the comments.  I feel bad not answering all of them, but there just hasn’t been time.  And I’m falling asleep at 11:00 PM every night.  Shocking, isn’t it?  After full days on our feet, seeing the world, I’m wasted!

Ok, we’re off to the beach before it gets too hot!  Oh, and whoever made the comment that if it ever stopped blowing out here, everyone would tip over, you’re so right!!!

  5. Okay I will admit it, little jealous here, if Tom could do his job from the beach we would so be at Ocean Beach in NJ right now, but installing carpet on sand is rough! Hope you are all having a wonderful time and enjoy the sun—its teasing us with possible rain here!! Love the cardi! ow is trevi coming?

  6. I found your blog by visiting Moda’s Bake Shop. I love your latest project there.

    My family and I spent our 2008 Spring Break there, as well as our summer because my husband was working there. We loved it! Have fun!

  7. For years and years I thought OBX was a company that did car stereos! I still laugh when I see the stickers. Enjoy!

  8. Welcome to NC and the OBX! Enjoy our beaches and come again.

  9. You’re sleeping! That is fantastic!

    Ok…where do I get a job where I can work from the beach?!
