vacation knittin'

On Thursday morning, I set off on an adventure. The first leg was less than glamourous - I took the Megabus home to Michigan - but yesterday my sister, Meghan, and I drove for nine hours through two states, heading towards the Outer Banks, NC. The Outer Banks is one of the most beautiful places in America, and our family has vacationed there since 1997, so I'm glad to be on the road. 

But I definitely need knitting...

vacation styleeee

Luckily, Allyson from Sweatshop of Love is once again hosting a Selfish Knit-Along! The sweater I've chosen is Julie Crawford's Make Up Your Mind, and I'm knitting it in Knit Pick's Comfy Fingering in Seafoam. My tropical color choice is definitely in the minority, but it will go perfectly with the new swim suit I ordered from Victoria's Secret. 

I'll be on the road for six hours again today before reaching OBX (the Outer Banks according to popular bumper stickers), so I'll have plenty of time to make major progress on my sweater. A good thing, considering I cast on three weeks after everyone else! 


  1. hey! we'll be just down the coast from you, in wilmington! have a fabulous time!

  2. so glad that you are enjoying the pattern!! I love the colour you chose. If you have any questions, you can always email me!

  4. That sounds so fun! That is an adorable top :) You've inspired me to pick up a new knitting project! I've been sticking to super easy ones, but I'll never learn if I don't try something a harder, right? Hehe, I hope you have fun on your journey!
