Yarn Along on Vacation

I just got home from one of the best vacations I have ever been on.

My inlaws celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary by taking all of us and my husband's sister's family to Disney World. We are blessed to come from such amazing families with strong marriages to set an example, love of family and knowing how to have fun!!!

Every morning, I drank my coffee on the balcony of our villa and snuck some
knitting time in before the busy Disney days began.

I casted on this triangular scarf/shawl, Cameo when we left for Florida.

I am using some fingering weight wool I bought back in May at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. It's from the Verdant Gryphon Yarn booth. The colors are amazing but don't show up well in this camera phone shot. But you get the idea...It's a varigated mix of teals, purples, greens and magenta. The second color will be teal.

And just a few vacation shots....
My niece, nephew and my three boys at Animal Kingdom Lodge after a great breakfast

View from our room and the small villa pool. The big one was out front. It was amazing!

Seeing Mickey Mouse for the first time. Who's more excited???

 My husband and our niece

....and a very happy, sleepy toddler that did extremely well

A big thank you to my family that took care of the dog while we gone!

Now back to reality....

A new baby alpaca is due any day so hoping for fun baby pictures soon!!!

Joining with Ginny for the yarn along.


  1. the face on chase when he saw Mickey was PRICELESS!! That just made my day!

    Very pretty yarn, by the way :-)

  2. It looks like you guys had so much fun. I love that you got some knitting time on vacation! I just put my Cameo on hold for some other big projects. I can't wait to see how yours turns out.

  3. How brave to go to Disney with a toddler! We didn't do those types of parks until our girls were able to walk under their own steam and didn't need naps. LOL! But then we were "old" enough to need naps.

  4. magical! sweet chase sleeping with his mickey is too cute. love that you had some morning knitting time leanne!
