This is the first side finished. I've started the second side as well but didn't take a pic of it.
I also started the Boxy Sweater by Joji Locatelli. I'm using Madeline Tosh Light in Worn Denim -- love this color yarn!
And here is my fussy cut star for the week using another Salt Water fabric (the octopus one) from Tula Pink.
But Maine! It was a big family vacation this time around. We went with my sister's family, and my father and stepmother. The boy child was picked up by us and was along as well. The girl child showed up on Wednesday evening. I will let the pictures do most of the talking.
Mia guarding the bags so we can't leave her behind.
Meeting the boy child in Boston.
Squished in the back of the car with my niece and nephew.
Just a taste of the spectacular house we stayed in for the week.
Taking pics on a rock up on a hill by the house. (Yes, it was part of the property. Amazing views!)
The patriarch, my father.
Stash from a lucky encounter with a lovely sewing shop called Clementine in Rockland, Maine. I loved their fabric selection -- and they even had lovely yarn and wool for felting as well!
Sunrise out our bedroom window.
The boys enjoying a natter out on the terrace.
My niece practicing her violin. She's quite the musician!
Picking up the girl child at Portland Jetport.
Celebrating the belated birthdays of my niece and the girl child (niece's birthday August 8, girl child's birthday August 16).
View from the loft of the house.
A fantastic knitting store called the Cashmere Goat in Camden, Maine. Wish I'd had more time to browse!
Fried clams, a necessity in my book. From a lovely restaurant called Hills Seafood in Rockland, Maine.
We all had a great time, although as always it was too short. We stopped by my sister's on the way home since we had an extra passenger in our car to drop off. The boy child took a family selfie before we left.
Mia was very happy to see us when we got home. And happy to explore my bag when I was unpacking too.
And now all is well with Mia's world.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week!
