Back from the land of no Internet

I spent the last two weeks in Emma Lake Saskatchewan for a family reunion. My grandpa turned 80 so for the first time in 16 years the whole family got together. Surprisingly, the only absentee was my sister.

I thought I was going to get a ton of knitting done lounging by the lake but it turns out it's hard to get personal time when there are 19 other people around and a party for 48 to plan for. I think I managed two to three rounds of sock and that's it. Poor knitting, you have been sorely neglected. I got my first SP12 package the day before we left. My pal went with a knitting around the world theme so this package is knitting in the UK. I love getting yarn in the mail.

It was a good trip though and it was nice seeing my family again. It's strange seeing my "little" cousins as teenagers. They even called me old! Geesh. One day it will be their turn.

And now it is mid-July which means I have a term paper to write and exams to start thinking about. So it looks like knitting will continue to take the back burner for a bit.
