I'm happy to report we all survived, hubby was a bit tired, V was a bit hungry (but took several small bottles), the animals were a bit out of sorts and I was a bit rested. Hubby loved the time with her, and I loved coming back to them.
I'm so ready to start knitting again. One class in particular, by Lucy Neatby, was completely packed with 'ah-ha!' moments and has given me great ideas for modifying some sock patterns and a couple of longies that I'm working on. I don't know how those knitters do the things they do, but I'm glad they do because I don't have to think them up. If I were a creative force in knitting I think we'd all still be knitting garterstitch scarves.
As an extra special treat, Sunday knit V went to bed like a dream and slept from 8 until 5am. Let's see if it's a trend. Maybe I'll get more knitting in if it is.
