Sharimom's Visit with pictures!!

Sharimom, Special K's mom came to visit a couple weekends back and I kept meaning to post about it. I mentioned it but here's the recap.

First off it was great having her here. We had a great time and it was her first visit to Florida so that was special. She flew in on Friday night and stayed until Monday night. On Saturday, my sisters, their families, and Special K's boss and wife came over and we had a dinner. I wanted my sisters to meet her and they all got along great. The kids had fun especially when we built a fire and had smores...YUMMO!! I don't have any pictures...we were all having too much fun!!

Sunday morning Special K, Sharimom and I went to brunch at the Don Cesar Beach Resort, which is a very nice resort here in St. Petersburg. It's pink and expensive. Special K had won tickets for two and it was our 9 month we decided to take his mom with us. The food was great but the company was even better. :) Here are pictures of us after brunch out on the beach behind the resort.What a cute Special K and Sharimom picture!!

That afternoon we, along with my step-sister Luz, drove down to the outlet mall in Ellenton and shopped. That was fun and we all got some great finds. After we got back we headed back to the beach for some sunset pictures...
I sat on the beach and knit on my sock. It was beautiful and peaceful and I must do this again!! Especially went it gets cooler. :) Evidence of BK, beach knitting. That's Luz relaxing on the blanket with me.

I couldn't upload the video so I'm going to try again later. It was too big to load. Gotta go pick up the girls I'm sitting for or I'd finish it. :)

Have a great day!!

Knitting this weekend will be spent figuring out what my next sock pattern will be and which yarn to use. I might need some help so I'll post on it later if I do. I've done a swatch with one yarn and I'm working on the swatch for the second.

Special K also agreed to help me make the yarn swift this saturday!! I'll take pictures of the process. If it goes well then Sunday I might head to joann's and pick me up a ball winder...since I've gotten three 50% coupons in the last couple days. I'm also thinking of sewing a knitting bag for my Ohio road trip to keep all my projects together. I might get some fabric this weekend or next. 50% is fun!!


  1. Beach Knitting looks like more fun than I could ever imagine but how do you keep the sand out of the yarn? I can't wait to see your first pair of socks (I keep looking on Ravelry like a stalker). Good luck with your swift.

  2. Cute pics!!! Love the beautiful beach setting too.
