I'm home, and glad to be here. I know you are on your way to Panama City tomorrow, and I hope the weather cooperates with you! We're having nice weather today, highs in the 50's, but it's calling for snow tomorrow night. One of our friends just turned 50 and we're going to his surprise birthday party tonight. I'm making him a pie for his birthday present, and Don says that I have to put it in a box so he can decide whether to share it or not.
While I was traveling, I listened to The Orchid Thief on my iPod. It's really about obsession, and I can certainly understand how people get obsessed with orchids. I've posted pictures of the orchids in my bathroom before, I know, but right now I have 7 orchids and six are blooming. Look at them - they are just beautiful!
I also made good progress on the current baby sweater, I'm finished now with the back and both fronts. I'm sure it will look much nicer after blocking, but here's the finished views. This is what lots of travel will get you - plenty of knitting time! I love listening to the audio books, I can read a book and knit at the same time. Now on to do two sleeves, block everything, seam it up, do a neckband, and put on buttons. Then on to the next item on the list - three more babies have arrived or will imminently, and I started a pair of socks for Don. Whew!
Let me know how things go in Panama City - I'll be thinking of you all!
