I had a great time visiting the family in CA this past week. I spent most of my time in the pool either at my parents' or my sisters'. However, we did go North of SF for a few days where the weather was cool enough to wear my Sesame cardigan. It ended up working well. It fit, did its job nicely, kept me warm enough. It got lots of compliments from my MIL and other family members, which was nice.
I took my socks and sweater with me, but was only able to work on the socks. I managed to cast on the second sock and work past the cuff a bit. With no pattern to stare at needed it was much easier to work on while socializing with the fam.
My neck is a bit stiff after all the traveling on airplanes and differnt beds and pillows so I am taking a bit of a break from knitting. Not for too long, though. I am determined to finish the sock and the Ruffled Suplice by the time I have to go back to work in August.
