Off for some sun and fun

So far, I am managing to keep the winter blahs at bay and The Gaming One is doing his share to help. He took a week off work and early tomorrow we will be headed to sunny Sarasota, FL to visit two of our favorite people in the entire world for a week WITHOUT THE KIDDOS! I am so looking forward to a week of warm weather, good company, hard liquor and no responsibilities!

Hopefully, when I return I will have a FO to share with y'all- 20 hours in the car should be ample time to finish the little somethin' somethin' that practically jumped on my needles before my stole had even finished blocking.

I almost forgot, I have a little FO to share with y'all now! I completed the Star shaped baby blanket I started in October for the Gaming One's buddy.

Pattern: Beth's Little Star Afghan 27 rounds
Hook: F/5
Yarn: Bernat Softee Baby 2 skeins -I hated crocheting with this yarn, it was splitty and tedious to work with. The blanket is snuggly soft (and machine wash/dry) so I guess that is what really matters! Hope the new Mommy likes it.
Finished size: 39" tip to tip
I will be back in a week!

The blanket is very cute! I hate splitty yarn but your result is wonderful.

HAVE A WONDERFUL VACATION! You deserve it! I know you will miss the kids but it is so good to get away without them. Enjoy!

The blanket looks pretty and cuddly.

Man I wish I was going - make sure you have plenty of hard liquor!!!

Have fun and enjoy - nothing like a vacation (especially when you can shake the kids free)!!

Hope you're having a great vacation!
