We survived!

My niece and I had fun and no struggles! Yea! There was lots of cooking and dishes, but also, spinning (by E) and sewing (by E) and knitting (by me) and swimming (by both of us.) She made masks for seven dolls and one for me, and spun this yarn

She did really well for only her second time spinning, and her first time was last November.

I didn’t realize it, but this was the longest she had ever been away from her parents. All three of them did really well!

While she was here, I finished knitting my shawl, and yesterday after she left, I blocked it. I love it! It is so soft and drapes so nicely.

Today I was pretty tired! I lay low, did a bit of spinning and knitting. Just got back in the rhythm of being home.

Tomorrow will be busier, I have to take the truck in for servicing, do the grocery shopping, and get home in time for knitting by zoom at 1. Back to normal activities! Vacation toon is almost over. 😢 The week just flew!

    1. Thanks! And you know she already asked if she could come next week, and a few nights of all of her school vacations for the next several years!

      She will come again, but nit sure when. We have to see how the virus plays out around here now that all the tourists have arrived…

        1. It sure is! And I agree, it’s a good use! Don’t know if you remember the really fat yarn that we used for hair ribbons in the 70’s? It reminds me of that, but this is multi colored. However, times change and apparently using yarn in one’s hair is crazy old lady talk.

  1. Beautiful shawl. Your knitting is always so lovely. Glad you all had a great time. The spun yarn looks yummy. For only her second time spinning she did a good job.

    1. Thank you. I am glad it all went well, too. She will be able to return when the public health status allows.

      I think she did very well, too. I might show her some you tube videos next time. That might help her understand what I am saying to her.

  2. I just MUST meet E! She’s such a character. Great job Aunt Sarah, and I proud of both E’s spinning and your finished shawl. Well done on both!
