So our trip to Thailand was fun. I've never had a resort holiday before, but we left the resort every day to do something. We did the normal kind of touristy things one does on Phuket. A boat trip to the islands;
sitting by the pool;
hanging out on the beach;
Babysitting my friend's 4 month old while she did a cooking class;
And all the while knitting, knitting, knitting.
The Village Sweater wrap was perfect knitting - light enough to work on even in the beautiful humid heat, and I got the entire garter stitch section finished, which was good, because that could have become boring in other circumstances.
Thailand doesn't have a knitting tradition, and, although I did see some crocheted toys at the market, there was no yarn shops, so I managed not to increase the stash on this holiday There was a sheep themed hotel, but it was called "Sleep with me" so who knows what's going on there.
My other main observation is that most of the cats had weird stumpy tails:
Basically I had fun, and it was great to hang out with my girlfriends, get warm and relax before I become a home-owner next week.
