Yarn Bombing in Paradise

Well, my vacation came, was wonderful and is now over. Big sigh.

For those of you who knit, I thought you would appreciate this yarn bombed (yarn stormed if you are on the other side of the pond) palm on the beach in Sint Maarten.

Phin and the Yarn Bombed Palm
A fun time was had by all, but especially my 5 year old nephew, Linus. He can be a bit mischievous. So when I told him I wanted to take him on a lunchtime pizza date - just the two of us - he somehow finagled a "pizza and waterslide" date out of it. This is us after about seven trips down the 3 story on-board waterslide. The kid has no fear.

This is his sneaky smile - when he knows he's getting away with something.

Other highlights for me included scuba diving with Phin in St Thomas - I saw some huge sting rays and 2 turtles - followed by some beers and conch fritters at a local joint overlooking the bay. I also loved a catamaran snorkel trip with my parents and nephews in Sint Maarten, and celebrating my parents 40th wedding anniversary on board the ship.

Here's a little slide show of the trip. Honestly, I wore LOTS of things that I made - the jumpsuit, the seersucker dress, my flowered pants, some tops, a beach cover up... And NONE of them seemed to get photographed. Sigh.

I am sure that you looked fabulous- even without photographic proof! Lol
Sounds like a wonderful summer vacation.
