And what day is it? We’ve logged about 3,500 miles, my memory is going! (And yes, there’s knitting at the end of the post!)
Actually, we’re here!
This is the view out of our windshield!
I totally missed telling you about one stop. We spent two days in Myrtle Beach, SC. It was the total opposite of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It was fun, but maybe not the highlight.
Yesterday was my day! If you’ve read this blog at all, you’ll know that I’m a huge Nascar fan. (I’m watching the race right now while waiting for the very slow internet!!!) We toured Lowe’s Motor Speedway in Charlotte, NC in a 15 passenger van. We even did a lap around the track at 90 miles per hour! It was really interesting.
The kids thought this photo was hilarious, because My Hero is turning 50 in a few months.
We also toured the Hendrick Motorsports Museum.
If you’re not a Nascar fan, you don’t care who I cheer for. If you are a fan, now you know!!!
Now for the knitting. My Eyelet Cardi is moving along. I did a picot hem.
The neck and the fronts are finished as well. I’m really pleased with the way this looks. It hasn’t even been steamed yet.
I need to be on the lookout for a button. Now it’s just a mind numbing amount of stockinette to finish the sleeves.
We have one more stop this week in western Virginia, and then we’re off to Ohio, and My Hero is back to work. We’ll be home sometime next weekend. The kids are getting a little edgy sharing 300 square feet. Traveling is fun, but there’s no place like home. Oh, and we only have 9 states left, and we will have been in all 48 continental states.
I’m going to knit on those sleeves for a while and watch the rest of the Nascar race. Life is good.
