Bring on the cuteness!

So I don't have a whole lot of pictures of my nephew, but I did get this video of my nephew dancing. Too cute, so I had to share.

Squares Squared

I was knitting like a madwoman on vacation. Mostly in the car. Although I did help drive, M did the most of the driving and I got to get a lot of car knitting done. In the car, I worked on squares. Whee fun, but it is easy portable knitting. I did finish the first Artemis sock too, but that was the only sock knitting I did on the trip and I didn't have that much to do on it.

For Stacey's squares project, I knit 3:

For the squares exchange, the rest of the squares I knit out of one skein of Colinette Jitterbug, for a total of 5 squares (2 were already exchange):
So far, my stack of squares is small, but this is just the beginning of my squares:
I'm still knitting on squares, but the obsessive knitting on the squares is taking a backseat to a new project, to be discussed soon.
Have a great weekend all.

Where I've Been

Whew, it's been a minute since I last posted. I got back in town last Sunday night and then right on in to work the next day. I thought I would get back here sometime last week, but it definitely did not happen.

The road trip was awesome. We stopped along the way and visited with one of M's cousins in Tulsa,OK. Our first destination was Atlanta. The family reunion was great and we all had a wonderful time there.  While in Atlanta, we visited The World of Coca-Cola, took a tour of the CNN Center, went to the King Center and went to the top of Stone Mountain, stopped by Knitch and took in a Braves baseball game for M's birthday.

At each family reunion, they typically occur over a long weekend. On Fridays, we have a bbq or picnic. We spent Saturday at Stone Mountain, had a sack lunch there and then attended a banquet. Amazingly enough, I even managed to get a picture of my mom, sister, nephew, bil, M and M2.
After Atlanta, we headed on towards Greensboro, NC to spend a few days with two of M's sisters that live there. Then we spent a lot of time here
on the road on the way home.
We stopped along the way, the first night's stop was in Memphis, TN. A trip to Beale Street was in order, since we were so close and all. We stopped by the Riverfront the next morning before we left.
En route to Tulsa again for another visit with M's cousin, we stopped in Little Rock, AR at the William J. Clinton Presidential Center and also visited with one of my former college friends there.
 I think the success of this trip was that we took our time driving and didn't try to do too much driving in one day. When we arrived home, we weren't terribly tired. Since then, we've just been getting back into the swing of things. There has been some knititng happening and I'll cover that in a subsequent post.
