The sunny weather we enjoyed in San Francisco turned to cloudy the day we left and we got rained on driving over the Sierras. That weather is now here. I'm trying to walk two miles every morning and the dogs approve heartily.
We found Kinder eggs in a corner store on Steiner. I knew the kids would be thrilled so ended up buying eleven. Josh managed to get rooms for both their families in our hotel and on the same floor. I took the eggs to them before we started anything else. They're so silly, you just have to laugh. The toys in the center are often in pieces with assembly required. Matt worked diligently and produced a boomerang that was so effective that we ended up hurling it around the hotel room. The boys chased it, to no avail.
This is my collection that I've been adding to since we went to Germany in 1995. They were illegal for years and just recently an American version has been released. I think we actually got illegal eggs. I wish I bought more! About half of them have moving parts. I bought one for me too. I'm waiting to open it until I deliver the last four. They're more fun to open together. These are the ultimate Easter egg in my opinion.
I was a passenger for only six hours so this is all the trip knitting I got done. I'm still working on a baby sweater and need to step it up a notch, since we leave a week from tomorrow. I love these and hope they fit a real baby. They're supposed to be six-month size.
I'm back to working on the rag rug runner which is working up much better with a temple. I'm happier with 6 ends per inch and 2" strips which I fold in half, right side out. I think I'll try thinner strips one of these days, just so I'll know.
