Off to Disney World

First here’s something I kind of finished awhile back. I have to go back and redo the zipper. The zipper was to long so I stretched it to put it on, resulting in a pucker look down the front. I need to shorten the zipper to get it to lay better. This is a pattern from Knit Picks called snowflakes and arrows. I looked on knit picks for the pattern but could not find it. Maybe they no longer offer the pattern. It did have mistakes in the pattern and I saw some people who did a KAL on it complain. Anyway it was my first project using steeks. I also used knit picks yarn called palette. I had heard all the good reviews of knit picks yarn, inexpensive, nice quality. The yarn was nice to work with and I would use it again.

Dax got a Klutz book on crochet for Christmas and has already made a bath bag from it. I thought it came out really nice.

Got my Minnie skirt out and ready to go. Tomorrow I leave to pick up my sister from the airport to stay at one of the budget Disney resorts. The main reason for the trip is to torture ourselves by doing the Disney half marathon. I’ve done marathons before but feel nervous about this half marathon. I’m going into it with a foot problem and I’m also the heaviest I’ve ever been. If nothing else we should get in a lot of knitting time. It will be the first trip we’ve been on with out the kids in about two years.

    I have not tried Fair Isle or Steeking but I saw an episode on Knitty Gritty for a little bear sweater that knocked out both and that will probably be my first attempt. Love your vest. I don’t get marathons but I hope you and your sister have loads of fun. Be safe.

    Good luck to you and Cindi on the 1/2 marathon. I am considering dropping back to that distance. My last couple of marathons have been a less than great experience. I’m not into pain.

    Aha! I have finally figured out the truth! You and Cyndi have been slowing down your times over the years not to take advantage of having paid the bucks for the race and intending to take full advantage of all they offer on the course BUT, instead to take more time to spend with each other. This year was ultimate in the sense that you all got a mini vacation sans kids. I’m betting next year you guys will decide that training around the Holidays for a marathon is crazy and that maybe you should do a different one like maybe in the Bahamas or somewhere in the mountains again sans kids and spouses I bet. It’s okay, I’m on to you and Cyndi but I’m good with it 😉 😉 nudge nudge.I hope you guys had a great time!!!Love ya,Sam
