Well, we’re back! Really, we’ve been back since last Thursday or so, but I’ve been too lazy and busy with housework to get back to bloggin’. It has been a really nice break but I did miss the blog and reading everyone else’s blogs. I did get quite a bit of knitting done this week, yay! I completed the openwork tank, but not in time to wear it on the beach. It is cute, but after seeing the pictures, some major ab workouts need to happen before wearing it in public. I don’t know what is compelling me to show you guys these pictures since they are not flattering, but I’ll share anyway. Here’s the back and here’s the front. The pattern is from the Summer Vogue Knitting (pattern #1) and I used the Microspun that it called for. I ended up using just under 3 balls of yarn so this tank cost me less than $6 since I got the Microspun on sale. It’s a good thing, since it’s not really an everyday wear sort of tank, definitely a beach going tank.
The beach was wonderful and our vacation was incredible, but it’s nice to be home and to get back to our normal schedule. We had kind of reached that bouncing off the walls point that kids reach when summer vacation is coming to an end and both the parents and kids are ready for them to return. I’ll share more stories and more pictures this week, including another finished object!
