We got back from Texas last night, after a wonderful week. I'm sure you all know about the wonderful interfaith wedding that took place on July 31st! No, the other one. The one involving our DD!
The wedding went great, and it was fun to meet the new relatives and spend time with both of our granddaughters.
Our daughter looked beautiful and happy. Her new husband looked pretty cute, too!
DH wore his tux. That's twice this year. A record!
Not to be outdone in all this cuteness was little Daphne. Not so little anymore, at 11 lbs.
We were a little concerned about fitting her into the slip I bought to go with the Avery Christening Gown (from Vintage Baby Knits by Kristen Rengren), which was rated for up to 10 lbs, but it was just right. She's long and lean, so the extra pound didn't matter.
In the meantime, the week was not without fiber fun! I finished my Koolaid sock-blank socks on the trip down.
On the way back, I made progress on the socks I made from the KP bare sock yarn with Donegal that I dyed with Neon green food coloring.
We listened to Books 1-3 of Dean Koontz's Frankenstein, which I can recommend if you like Koontz, which we do. I plan to download Book 4 from Audible for August. I have also been reading the real book, Clara Parkes' The Knitter's Book of Wool.
My app of the week has to be the free Flashlight app that comes with every iPad! You just turn on the iPad and point it where you left your glasses or shoes in your darkened hotel room when everyone is asleep! (It also works great in your lap or on the floor when you're spinning in the dark.)
Speaking of spinning, perhaps the highlight of the return trip for me was when we stopped at a motel to see if they had any rooms we could afford (they didn't) and I got WiFi for the few minutes we were in the lobby. I checked with KP first, of course, and found out about the new Spin Along! Whoopee!
