Mountain Colors Winter Lace Yarn


I can't forget to share the glorious new yarn I got from Knit N Needle yarn shoppe in Whitefish, MT. Aimee and the ladies were fantastic to me...they gave me directions until I got there...which took 3 different phone calls, but it was worth it to me! I picked the Wild Horse colorway...it reminds me of the colors of the water/sky and the trees on Wild Horse Island located on Flathead Lake. It feels delicious!

Vacation Summer of Socks



Dear Daughter took this photo of my and my vacation sock. These are toe up, 68 stitches, magic loop, using Happy Feet yarn and 2.75 mm Knit Picks needles. Oh, that is SwiftCurrent Lake and Grinnell Point which are both part of Many Glacier...also part of Glacier National Park.






I took the sock on the guided boat tour over Swiftcurrent Lake, a short walk, then to Lake Josephine and back.



I'm so proud!

Surprise...Vacation!


When the hubby says, "We hit green...if we are going to go, we need to do it now," well, we pack quickly! I had been thinking we would go to mine sapphires, but instead, we ended up at Many Glaciers...and it was fun!





We were told we literally were given the last room at the Inn...so we splurged. (Top floor...viewing the lake...no elevator, but well worth it!) It was magical to view the reflection of the mountains on the lake, but even better to view it at night...sorry, the digital wasn't able to capture that lighting.

Just Hillary Pay Down The Debt Received



Thank you Abycat! Girl, you brought me to tears...in a good way. Your kindness is appreciated...we certainly share more than just our political tendencies. The SWTC Bamboo yarn is amazing...I never knew it would be so heavy...I love it! Yes, MDF, it is a beautiful purple...and it is mine.

Look closely at the photo...do you see the adorable little crochet hook? How about the sweater key chain? I am going to be selfish and keep the chocolate tea...I never even knew they made that flavor! My only wondering is what are the foam thingies for? I was thinking of using them to mark my knit pick circulars...but I doubt that was their original occupation.




Another up close look at this beautiful yarn...wow!

Sock Put Progress




Don't look beyond the sock...cuz that only shows you what I should have been doing. Here is the progress on Hedera by Cookie A. and sock yarn by CastleFibers. That Give Em Hill Colorway is beautiful!

The Olympics have begun!











And I have cast on with my Give Em Hill yarn!



I also realized I had not shared my stuff from the fair. Delaney had to enter them for me...I was in Seattle. Here is Paula's scarf using the Mountain Colors Sunburst yarn. How appropriate for a girl from Sunburst!



And I can't forget to thank my Gryffindor Swapper...I'm sorry I was late with the post, but finding everything after coming home has been interesting. I love the book and the yarn!
