Some of my favorite "family time" is spent tromping around new places looking for designated containers of various shapes and sizes in which to log our names. The girls have learned along the way that life is truly about the journey, not the destination.
From time to time we have been temporary custodians of Travelbugs. (Follow the link for the best explanation.) On our recent trip to New Orleans, I set my first travelbug free. Meet the Stitchin' Witch Travelbug. The travelbug dog tag is attached to a luggage tag that bears a witch knitting socks...quite appropriate for my first bug. The goal I've assigned to her is that she travel to "magical places" and hopefully meet some knitters/sheep/llamas along the way.
She was picked up from the initial drop point and is currently on her way to Oregon.
Knitting seems to find its way into each of our pasttimes!
