When we last saw our intrepid heroine, she was deep in the clutches of wedding mayhem. Did she survive 5 weeks of chicken dances? Was she seduced by endless layers of wedding cakes? Will her liver ever recover from 4 straight open bars???
I am sure you've all been sitting on the edges of your seats.
Anyway, we went to our 4th wedding in 5 weeks this past weekend, and as wedding-ed out as I am, I have to say, it was the best traditional wedding we may have ever gone to. Just a perfect mix of good friends, good music, good dancing, a beautiful ceremony, a happy couple, and not *too* much to drink.
We had a lovely time.
Also, inspired by a musing in one of Stephanie's books, I brought my Hourglass sleeve to the church and worked on it while we were waiting for the ceremony to start.
Hourglass, she grows:
I'm starting to find the balance I was hoping for upon leaving the Man for self-employment and my knitting is getting some love again. I'm really enjoying Hourglass, but I need to root around for some good travelling knitting, because Hourglass is just too big for me to lug around. I like to travel light, and I'd like to have some space for yarn on the way back.
Because as if I haven't been doing enough travelling lately, I'm leaving for San Francisco on Thursday, and I'll be gone for 6 days. And contrary to the the tone of the previous sentence, I'm *really* looking forward to this trip.
First off, it's not for a wedding. That's a huge plus. Secondly, I'm going with my family and my father's planned all sorts of cool stuff, and really, I just always have fun with my family. The Cunninghams, they know how to have a good time. Thirdly, it's the last family trip that I'm going to be taking as a Cunningham, and Eric's not coming, so it's going to be nice time as a daughter/sister instead of as a separate adult unit. Does that make sense?
Anyway, we have all sorts of stuff planned, like a wine tour and a game at PacBell stadium, but I'm totally going to make time to do yarn shopping, so does anyone have any good suggestions?? I'd really appreciate it!
