Vacation in Myrtle Beach, Knitting Updates, and Reading On

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. I just got back from a week long trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. We stayed at the Sheraton Broadway Plantation resort with Liam's family. It was so fun and I enjoyed going down to the pool every morning and especially enjoyed the lazy river. It was so hot and humid each day but I got used to it by the end of the trip and just going to the pool and spending time in the air conditioning on and off. I really feel like I needed this trip right now because after starting the new position at my company I hadn't really taken a break and this was the perfect trip for some rest and relaxation.

I also got quite a bit of knitting done on the spiral sock I started while down there. I knitted a lot in our room and on the balcony at the resort and also knit by the pool. I am using the Patons spiral socks pattern and it is such a good sock project for me to take on vacation because it is simple and fun to knit. I also love how the sock is turning out with the self striping yarn. The yarn I am using is Patons Kroy sock yarn with 3.25 mm bamboo double pointed needles. Click here to see my notes on the socks on Ravelry. I also finished knitting the second dishcloth I mentioned in the last blog post. I will share the finished dishcloth in my next post.

Knitting by the pool = the best

I had a great time going to the pool, going on shopping trips and Target especially, spending time with family, and mini putting.

Didn't win but had fun!

Every morning breakfast on the balcony, my favorite

I finished reading A Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult. I really enjoyed this book because it was really focused on the controversial issue of abortion and the two sides of the argument on the topic. It also explained the position from both pro-choice and pro-life activists. Jodi Picoult explains at the end of the book that she interviewed both pro-choice and pro-life to understand their perspectives in order to write this book and also witnessed actual abortions, she really researched for the book and took this important topic seriously.
I started reading The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory while I was on vacation. It is such a cute and fun book so far. I am enjoying reading about the topic of weddings as well because my wedding is next year and I am getting excited.

What are you working on and reading right now?

Joining along with Ginny over at Small Things for her monthly Yarn Along.

Have a great day!
