Greetings from snowy white Vermont!! The Wee One & I drove to the ILS in VA on the 20th after her school party. We hit horrific traffic at Concord Mills in NC which kept us at a standstill for a good hour. We spent 2 nights w/ the ILS & then drove to VT on the 22nd. We set a new record---12 hours 45 minutes! The roads were nice & clear which helped tremendously.
We've had a wonderful time in VT & have had 2 snow storms, including the one today which has dumped at least 3" at my parents house. I shoveled! For the first time in at least 3 or so years! Tomorrow there may be an amusing story called "Laurie meets the snowblower". I'll be sure to arm Mom with a camera!
The Wee One & I are going to play in the snow after lunch & I will have pictures of that.
On the yarn front I have visited all my favorite yarn stores---Suzanne's (a hat pattern for hte wee one), Backstitches (size 6 dpn's) & Yarn Theory (2 skeins Koigu KPPPM) in VA & Kaleidoscope yarns (1 skein Koigu KPPPM) & NEFAC ( some pretty Noro sock yarn!) in VT. My scarf is about 75% done & I'm going to start my Clapotis for the 3rd time when it's done. I need to practice my P F & B as for some reason I cannot wrap my brain around it.
Here are some of my friends who still live in VT. We had a girls night out on Saturday at Sweetwater's in Burlington followed by a mini-pub crawl in a desperate attempt to find a place to watch the Pats game. From L to R--Heather, Brenda, me & wendi. I hadn't seen Wendi in almost 10 years so it was great that she showed up!
Hope everyone has a safe & happy 2008. I know I'll be happy to see 2007 end as it means we're that much closer to Hunter coming home!
