Have I mentioned that I have the World’s Best Husband? Because I do. I really do. (Sorry, this post isn’t going to have a lot of knitting in it… oh well!)
So, my 30th birthday was this week (yep, I’m officially a grown-up now), and instead of going out to eat or having friends over or renting out the roller rink, my husband decided to do something flipping amazing for me. He planned a secret vacation!
All I knew going in was that we were heading out of town for about a week, and a few days before we left, he told me to pack for the beach (which was lucky, because I was 100% convinced that we were going to Portland).
I packed my bags, and made sure to bring plenty of knitting (because you never know), and we headed to the airport.
I didn’t take a picture of my face when he finally told me where we were going, but it was something like this:
Because we were going to Hawaii! Kauai, specifically. 5 days of beaches, snorkeling, tropical drinks and hiking in the rain forest. It was utterly delightful. And I didn’t even end up sunburnt! (As a super-pale Seattleite, this is a huge victory.)
And while sunbathing and swimming isn’t terribly conducive to knitting, I did get most of the way through my Diagonal Lace socks (two 6-hour-one-way flights) help with that! I’ve just got a little bit of cuff, some finishing and a quick blocking, and they’ll be done!
Yay vacation! Yay socks!
