… in this case, a slice of time removed from the real world, to sit on a beach, swim in the pool with a delighted toddler, see a movie in a theatre, stroll brightly lit downtown streets, sip a T&T with a big, fat lime and actual bubbles in the tonic while the sun dips below the horizon.
It was wonderful.
The other slice is this: A Slice of Santa Fe, my name for Citron, from knitty.com’s winter issue.
This pattern is the ultimate in vacation knitting. Cast on, work stockinette back and forth, and let the yarn do the work.
In this case, the yarn is Sundara Fingering Silky Merino in the colorway Adobe from the Santa Fe Collection. It’s a warm orange/tan semi-solid – exactly what the name says. It’s my first time knitting with this yarn, and while it would initially appear to want to be somewhat splitty, it isn’t splitting at all while on the needles. (Addi Lace US 6, to be precise. I had gauge with the 5, but wanted a more airy, draping fabric, so I opened it up just a bit.) With no exertion, I’m nearly finished.
Just what the doctor ordered. Along with that T&T.
