I didn't mean to fall off the face of the earth like that! I have been pretty busy. We spent spring break in Vermont. My husband and I had not been there before. Who would have thought. Only six hours away from the city! We love it. It was crazy weather. I was sunny and 65 but there was still snow on the ground. People were skiing in shorts! I remember getting out of the car the first night we were there and saying "I can smell nature". Something I don't get a lot of in Brooklyn. I makes me appreciate it so much more.
What do you do in a car for a total of 12 hours with your kids? Knit one of these. It's Vermont, everybody knits. It's made of a beautiful grey wool. I used big fat needles and did a simple garter stitch. So that I would not have to look while I was knitting.
