So this past weekend I spent with my mom in Florida visiting my grandparents. Once you get into the slow, relaxed life that they lead there it’s really hard to get out of. Every day I was there I took a nap by the pool. Every day. You just can’t beat that. And now it’s lunch at work and all I want to do is take a nap in the sun……unfortunately it’s like 10 degrees out and I have work to do.
The highlight of the trip was definitely the flea market. I got random t-shirts for $1 (perfect for painting in) and $4 "designer" sunglasses for both me and Matt…. And fresh strawberries and funnel cake for lunch. Goodstuff. I also bought a hippie skirt (they are supposedly "in" for spring) and a visor to wear rowing. I love the flea market.
My grandmother is the ultimate enabler… while we were there and supposed to be working on Olympic Knitting she showed me how to do this:
Yup. That would be wool dying. Here’s the finished results drying in the sun on their porch:
So fun to play with. I’m going to have to do more dying although perhaps not in such neon colors…
I did manage to knit quite a lot – as did my mom and my grandma…. It was pretty cool – Three generations of Olympic Knitters:
It was a nice trip.
