I arrived safe and sound on Friday afternoon around 1pm. I had a delightful flight on a Delta Connection flight straight from LGA to MYR. With the increasing costs of flying these days, let me just tell you how shocked I was that in addition to receiving complementary soft drinks on the flight, we also were giving a choice between several real snacks. We even had the option of taking seconds! Wow.
By 4pm my sister and I had donned out swimsuits and found ourselves laying by the pool in her neighborhood for a couple of hours. Ahhh. The relief of the pool was wonderful for me. I will say my first day in MB was awesome.
I committed myself to running while I am here. The beginning of my marathon training is right around the corner and I want to get in some running while here. I got up early on Saturday morning and went for a 3 mile running around the neighborhood. The neighborhood my sis lives in is still under development in some parts. Well all I can say is I was swarmed with horseflies in the lesser developed area. All I could think of was killer bees and that my sis would find my body laying in the middle of the road with the flies picking over my flesh. But alas I survived and my run turned into a 4 to 4.5 mile run.
I do have some knitting to share. When I ran out of yarn for my Coquette Lace Tube Top I decided to start another one of my summer knitting projects. Below is a picture of my Ribs and Lace Tank from Interweave Knits. I can't remember the issue right now, as I left this knitting sitting in New York.
I am using Berrocco Touche yarn in black for this knit. I am working on the 11 inches of knit for the straps and then just have a little bit to do on the back before I am finished. If I hadn't spent the last two days before my trip trying to pack and stuff, I probably would have finished it before I came to Myrtle Beach.
Mary Beth, Mom and I went on a little yarn crawl today. I will post about it later in the week. Some yarny goodness to share. I also finished knitting the front of my Prairie Tunic and started a new project and started a new project (pics to come).
