Whirlwind Weekend

Steve and I are home, watching the closing ceremonies after our quick trip to Blacksburg.

We drove out (it takes 5 hours) on Saturday, went to dinner with M2 and her boyfriend, then watched some of the Olympics before going to bed. Steve and I went out for coffee this morning while waiting for her to get up, then took her and her roommate out to brunch,
and then we headed back. Lots of knitting time! It was really pretty out there; it was snowing very, very lightly most of the time.

It's kind of cool that I was able to watch the Olympics with M1 last weekend and with M2 this weekend, despite the fact they both live elsewhere.

Saw this recipe over at Make It Do and can't wait to make it. I love this kind of salad and I think I have most of the ingredients in the cupboard already. If I could just stay home once in awhile, I might be able to do it.


  1. I love that all of you are clad in hand knits! Sounds like you had a great weekend.

  2. I'm admiring your cowl - it's just peeking out and looks very nice.
    You seem to have escaped the worst of the wintry weather. Such long drives. Good you can knit and travel.
