Girls Weekend

I had some much needed girls-only time in the Outer Banks of North Carolina this past weekend and the weather was amazing. I came back so relaxed that the workday just flowed by as smooth as silk. We hung out, ate, knit, played cards, and talked nonstop, as well as soaked up some gorgeous late September sunshine on the beach. Our ages ranged from early thirties to late fifties and I think that added to the depth and range of the conversations.

I started a new Wingspan, using a skein of Lisa Souza merino, bought last year at Rhinebeck. I figured if I want to buy any more of her gorgeous yarn, I need to knit up what I already own.

I met my youngest, Melissa, for dinner after work, just to catch up with her, and have been snuggling with Gracie ever since I got home. I need to knit some more, so I can have another lovely day tomorrow, don't you think?



  1. Never ever been to the OB but my daughter in Virginia is in love with the OB.
    Hooray for recharging !

  2. It sounds like a lovely weekend.
