I love a spontaneous plan.  We made last minute reservations to take the ferry across to the Sunshine Coast and boy was it a spectacular few days!  It’s a good thing we reserved because this is what was in store for us and the thousands of other vacationers over on the other side…

We did lots of hiking, kayaking, late night movie watching, board game playing and plenty of lazing around… every minute was perfect.

Even the bald eagles were out having a great time.  We saw so many of them… at first it was like “eeeeeagle!!!” and by the last day the kids would say, “oh, eagle”.

It’s back to reality and school now and my Elia sweater has been steadily growing.  The cables provide the perfect rhythm making this knit interesting without being too overwhelming.

I think I may have overdone it yesterday with my just-one-more-row mantra.  I keep forgetting to take frequent breaks while I’m knitting and just do some finger/hand exercises.  I promise I’ll be good today because this is a highly addictive pattern (ooh, squishy cables!) and I really want to get it finished.

    I see why they call it the Sunshine Coast. Vampires would hate that place in the summer. The cables are awesome, can’t wait to see the finished sweater.
