Back from vacation!

Filed under: cats, knitting — Marie @ 12:36 pm

Whew – I’ve been back for almost a week, but I don’t have much to show for it. It could be the lingering “I’m on vacation” feeling, or spring fever, or whatever. I just haven’t felt like doing much but lounging around. That will have to come to an end, however, since I have a thesis to work on and a conference paper to give next week!

Not much is going on in the knitting department either. While in Florida, I did manage to finish the back of the tank:


In the same picture you’ll also see the beginning of the cabled belt from Sn’B Nation. (You can also see Chewie the Cat, who loves to participate in these pictures, even though he isn’t asked to! He just likes to be involved.) Turned out to be good airplane knitting: the pattern is easy to memorize, yet it is not mind numbingly boring to knit. It will probably go with me to Salt Lake City next week. I may also need a larger project to knit during the talks, if it doesn’t look too disrespectful. I think linguists are understanding, though. For me, it actually helps me focus more on the talk. Without it I get either fidgety or sleepy.

This is a short entry, so I’ve tried to make up for it with some pictures from my trip. Here is a sunset over Clearwater beach, taken from the mainland:


And a koi pond at Sunken Gardens, St. Petersburg. I love botanical gardens… I went a little crazy with the pictures there.
