Cape Cod mini-vacation

Today we headed to the Cape for a mini vacation and did our two favorite things: Marconi Beach and dinner at Moby Dick's. We also put the birthday bike and bike rack to use and brought our bikes to ride about 10 miles of the Cape Cod Rail Trail. We'll definitely do that again, it was great! It's also a good paved surface for roller blading (something that's sorely lacking around our town).

Off to put the gear away!

Last weekend we went to Sheboygan, Wisconsin to celebrate my mom's birthday. Thanks, Dad, for flying us out there!

We had a ton of fun, and I have more pictures of the weekend than I can post on a single blog post, so here's a start:

Yes, I have been knitting (and teaching advanced knitting at summer school).
So, here a few of my recent projects....
I made this cute frog from Classic Elite's Puddle Jumpers book (using 3 skeins of Tahki Kiss yarn as a substitute, and a 10.5 needle).

I made this tank top from KnitSimple Spring/Summer 2007 using Classic Elite Star (6 skeins) and size 9 needles.

And I started the Lady Eleanor entrelac wrap from Scarf Style using Noro Silk Garden (color 241).

Block Island

We headed to Block Island on the Fourth with Kurt & Cecilia (and Tizsa) and Marc & Christine. After a parking adventure at the ferry dock, we made the hour ride to Block Island.

We arrived in time for the big Fourth of July parade:

We rented bikes and rode out to the North Lighthouse. We probably biked about 10 miles, including many hills, so we were all tired by the end of the day. Well, except Tizsa (the cocker spaniel) because she got to ride on Kurt's back all day.

A fun day with great friends!
