We’re back from Hawaii and exhausted. How is it you’re supposed to recover from the exhaustion of everyday life by going on vacation, but do so much you’re exhausted? Oh yeah, I went on vacation. I can’t complain. Hawaii was freakin’ incredible! See that picture up there? I took it on my itty bitty little camera. Love it. It was sundown on the beach and we were at a luau. The kids were on a canoe ride, so I snapped a few. I like that one ‘cuz it’s kind of artsy fartsy.
“Knitting?” you ask. Pish tosh. “Yarn shopping?” you inquire? Did you ever think I would respond that way to any questions about knitting and yarn? I guess we were having too much fun to do much of either. I knit throughout the week on Argosy but didn’t stress over it. Hey, at least I got good enough where I have the pattern memorized and can even recognize the boo-boos. And I had plenty of opportunities to learn how to fix the boo-boos. I’ll post a picture later if I get around to it.
As for the yarn shopping, I made it to one store in Kailua that was also called The Christmas Store or some nonsense like that. They had one little room crammed with novelty yarn and Patons acrylic. I high-tailed it out of there so fast that I melted my Hawaiian shave ice! Holy Drip, Batman. There. That’s the extent of the yarn content of this post. As a consolation, here are a couple of pictures of some incredible waves we saw at Waimea Beach.
There was a riptide, so the lifeguard recommended against any kidlets getting in the water. The crazy head in the picture? Not us. We watched from afar and then headed to a calmer beach. It was a popular beach… popular with the sea turtles, that is. More about that later.
BTW, just saw that Allison has opened up Sockapalooza 4 sign-ups. Has anybody done this before? Anybody interested in doing it with me? Could be fun. You know, knock out your Sockapalooza sock and a Sockamonth at the same time?
