Canadian Weekend

My weekend jaunt to Canada started off a little rocky. We arrived at the hotel on Friday night to find the lobby was partially closed due to a burst pipe and the hotel was filled with kids on a ski trip. They were everywhere! I could hear them overhead racing up and down the halls and I thought for sure that the hotel was going to crumble around us in a heap.

Thankfully, with the exception of a nasty and stubborn stomache bug that plagued me all weekend long, the rest of the trip was great. The hotel we stayed at in Ottawa was nice, with a great pool with a 2 story waterslide that kept the kids busy. My cousin looked radiant as every bride ought to. My daughters had a blast visiting with family and dancing till they dropped. Fun was had by all.

There was even fiber joy over the weekend. I knit a lot, working test knitting yet another sock and I finished the pair of Ball Band Dishcloths in time to gift them to my brother and his wife, Misun, who just bought an apartment in NYC. As I found out, 2 balls of Sugar & Cream is the perfect amount to make a pair of dishcloths if you reverse the colors on the second one. Perfect!

There's so much more to tell but we spent all day on the road and didn't get home till after 10pm tonight so I'm super tired.

It sounds like you're having a good time.
Dontcha just love the ballband pattern? It's the perfect "mindless" knitting for me!

Is it just my imagination or do you always have bad luck with hotels? Trip sounds great though!
