Hitting the Hot Spots of Muncie, Indiana

Spring break! Vacation knitting at it's finest.

I took the kids on a little trip to see the Grandparents. Took six projects. Knit a bit on all of them. Here are the highlights:

Calico Cat Magic Ball patchwork scarf went to the Minnetrista Cultural Center.
Scaruffle went to the Muncie Children's Museum.

Periwinkle Cable Cardigan went to the library.

Green stripey sock went to the world's best bakery.

Blue Manos scarf went to the world's best (I'm really not kidding) candy store.


But don't let all those yarny tourist shots fool you. In reality, not a lot of knitting was done while I was watching the kids ransack the museums and bakeries.

The best knitting was done when the kids were tucked in and exhausted, just me and my mom on the sofa, watching the one channel (PBS) that she gets with her rabbit ear antenna on the TV. Knitting and chatting into the wee hours.

Awwwww - you make me miss Muncie. We lived justed two blocks from Minnetrista. And went to the children's museum several times. And of course the library. And is that Concannon's? We lived just two blocks from there too. On a good Saturday morning, DH would get up and go get us donuts!!! Yummy! Thanks for the pictures! Glad you had a good trip!

That is the sweetest ending to your visit. I had to read the ending to my husband. It just sounded like the most wonderful time that could be spent together. :)
