Okay so I have been back from Mexico for 10 days now and I am overdue for posting.We had a wonderful time at the Palladium Colonial resort on the Mayan Riviera.It was very sunny and hot.The beach was glorious and yes I am peeling.That is right for like the 2nd time in my life!!Let me just state that we saw no evidence of the swine flu while we were there. This was our 3rd trip to Mexico's Mayan Riviera and our 2nd to this resort. The last time we were at the Palladium was in 2003. Any guesses what Pandemic was going on then? You guessed it, it was SARS. I told DH that we will not be visiting any Palladium resorts again. Big sigh of relief from the rest of the world.
I did manage to do some knitting while I was there.I tend to get up fairly early so I knit before the rest of my family would wake up. I actually finished the Drooping Elm socks at Elann.com by Christie Pruitt. So that was what was made in Mexico. I knit my pair out of Sisu yarn and I used Magic Loop. They are pictured below.
Prior to leaving I stopped at L.K. Yarns in Halifax,NS and picked up some yummy sock yarn. The day before we left I received my ball winder from Knit Picks and made a mess of a skein of yarn that I tried to wind from the back of a chair. Ever done that? Yuck! So I was off to Cricket Cove ASAP after getting back and purchased a yarn swift. I am so glad I went because,drum roll please, Cricket Cove in Moncton is hosting a Knit in Public Day! Yeah!! That is right fellow knitters on Saturday, June 13th, 2009 Cricket Cove invites all Moncton and area knitters to join them and participate with knitters the World over and knit in public..I am so excited by this.The plan is to knit on preemie hats for the local hospitals but I am certain you can knit whatever you want.Please check back often as I will be posting the details as they are made available to me.
Monday night we met at Read's and had a great time. We will be meeting again on the 18th at 6pm.See you there.
And lo, such a thing exists
