We met our grandmother on my Dad's side on Saturday when we got in to town. We met a lot of our family on my Dad's side on Sunday when we had a lunch time barbecue. Everyone was really nice. It is kind of weird that some of them remember me from when I was a tiny baby.
We went to Breckenridge yesterday to see some big snow. That was great fun. I have never seen so much snow. We drove up to the ski lift areas, parked and ate sandwiches for lunch in the snow. We also did a little sledding down the road. That was fun, especially since we have never been sledding.
Then we went up to their (Dad and Nita's) cabin. It was very rustic, I had to pee in a bucket (TMI). We took pictures, played Scrabble and ate dinner. Aaron shot a Magnum 357 right before we left. I knew the gunshot was going to be loud, but it was still a surprise when it went off.
I have lots of pictures, but I can't upload from here. I will post more pics as soon as I am back in town.
Oh, and I got a gift card to a local yarn shop. We are going there today.
PS: To my secret pal, THANK YOU for the wonderful yarn and yarn cutter pendant. It was wonderful. I took pictures right before I left town, but didn't upload them to my server correctly so the pics are unviewable. =(
There is a little story behind the yarn you gave me that made it extra great, but I can't tell the story until the Secret Pal 7 is completed.
I just wanted to say THANKS!!

So, I have compiled a list of needles I currently own. It is not too detailed, but all the DPNs I own are aluminum except for one, the great bamboo set from my SP (size 8). All the rest of my needles are either plastic or aluminum. I am partial to the plastic needles. I thought that I preferred to knit on straights, that was until I started knitting in public. Now I realize the upside of knitting on circulars. I was waiting for a table at a restaurant recently and I was very aware of nearly stabbing the patrons nearby, not to mention the needle getting caught in the sleeve of my jacket. Though, one woman did say that knitting was "amazing".
