Estamos En Casa
Yes, we’ve returned home from another lovely week in Cancun…the weather was practically perfect in every way.
Tan, Fat and Tired
Like most vacations, we spent the majority of our time sleeping, lying on the beach and eating. This year was no exception, although we had a couple of snags in the vacation.
Our airport transportation to the hotel wasn’t reserved correctly by the hotel which caused a bit of angst, and then the hotel gave me a dinky little room when I was supposed to be given a suite (they did end up changing my room, but it wasted a hour or so of precious vacation time).
Fortunately, the hiccups all occurred at the beginning of the vacation so we could enjoy the remainder.
One caution about Cancun for those of you planning on going. The beaches have been severely damaged by hurricane Wilma in 2005. While the JW Marriott where we stay has tried to repair the beaches, they are about one third the size of what they used to be. On our last day on the beach, there was tidal erosion of about 20 feet from the day before.
I got a lot of vacation knitting done on the Ichida lace.
This represents up to round 70 of 142 rounds. Here’s a closeup where you can spot some of my mistakes or inconsistencies.
Given the size of the yarn and the needles, this will block out to a square that will be too small to do anything with, other than display as a kind of doily. Depending on how courageous I feel when I get there, I may improvise on the pattern and try and make it large enough for a shawl. We’ll see how it goes.
