What I did on my summer vacation.


(pier photo by Jenn)

Just got back from my Cancun vacation, y'all! Seven days of swimming, and reading, and lounging about...oh, and some knitting, too. I decided to start a new project with yarn that wouldn't be unbearable to the touch in 95 degree weather with 100% humidity, so I settled on this sweet top from the latest Vogue Knitting.
The Euroflax linen was the perfect choice; in fact, its roughness was softened up a bit by the humidity in the air. I could tell the yarn was drying out on the flight back because it got scratchier!

Anyway, I'd love to write more, but I got laid up with a nasty cold bug the day after I got back and the only thing I'm really good for right now is lying on the couch to watch Buffy and bad afternoon television programs. I missed you all, though, and maybe I'll try rousing myself later to catch up on some blog reading.

In the meantime, I made this awesome soup for myself last night. If it's not too hot where you are, you really need to try it!

love the top, love the pictures, and the soup sounds delish. sorry you sick. that happens to me when i travel, too.

your pics make me so anxious to get to playa. we are in the process of booking our honeymoon at a super fancy adult only (meaning 13+) 6 star resort. we've never been on a vacay that didn't require family before so we're going all out on this one.. can't wait. i just hope the weather is as beautiful as it was for you!

I am so sorry that you're not feeling well! I ALWAYS get sick after travelling on an airplane.

Glad you had such a great vacation, though! That looks like big fun. :)

What an awesome looking vacation and pretty little top. That stinks about the cold though - at least it didn't hit until after you had your fun vacation. That soup recipe looks soooo yummy!!

Good thing you get to have your post vacation vacation.

Yay, welcome home! Although boo, sick. At least you had a good time while you were gone--and that top is going to be adorable. I'm knitting a shopping tote with some Euroflax right now and it is dry and scratchy as all get-out. Maybe I should go off to Cancun to finish it....
