I can now drop all pretense – I recorded a podcast with the wonderful Lime & Violet & Caryn. They are uniformly lovely ladies and have all made me feel completely welcome and at ease here in Iowa. We celebrated a birthday for one of their knitting circle last night, and I finally made some progress on the socks that I’ve been working on. Of course, there was wine (and Root Beer Meade) served at the stitch-n-bitch, so I frogged everything I knit last night when I got up this morning.
Ladies, thank you very much. I have needed a vacation for a very long time. The combination of the long drive and the excellent company has been exactly the salve I needed to put work out of my mind and relax for a while.
Tomorrow I head home. More updates upon my safe return.
