Crochet and a Book = Heaven

And we’re back!

Sorry, I didn’t get time to post a quick update before my absence, but we had to get through hectic weeks and then it was time to fly out.  I even had a post ready on what WIPs/projects/yarn to pack, which obviously didn’t get posted in the rush.

In the end, since I was still inspired by my then-current project, I packed this with me on the plane, and between the waiting time to board and the flight, I was almost done by the time I arrived in Aruba.

It’s a pretty pattern, and only four rows to memorize for the pattern.  It’s the Brumbay Scarf/Wrap pattern, and as usual, I was so excited about the yarn and a new pattern, that I didn’t think about the cast-on count – again!  I don’t have enough yarn to make it a shawl, so it’ll have to be a cowl … unless I can work on the yarn budget and buy another two skeins of Drops Big Delight yarn!

After finishing the ball of yarn on this project, I moved on to the motifs.  Remember this?  The original Wool-Eater CAL from Sarah London, until I got side-tracked and started working with the chunky neons instead.  This was my take-along project while on the beach or by the pool.

And when I wanted to take a break from the crochet, I caught up with my reading as well.  What bliss!  I really didn’t know sometimes which I wanted to do first – crochet or read.  It’s so rare that I actually have extended uninterrupted hours to do either one, that when I do get the chance, I don’t know what to do!  LoL  Do you have that problem too?  Next time I might bring audio books, so I can do both at once.

And that was how it went during the week that we were there.  It also helped that we had limited wifi access, so that cut down on the time spent in front of a small screen.  But really … who had time to stare at small screens when I could use it to read and crochet?

Now I’m going into withdrawal … no sun, sea, crochet, reading!  It’s back to the real world now … *sigh*

Will post more pics soon, as I connect with blogland again … How has your summer been?
