Problems at the dorms...

This is what you see when you look west after walking outside the front door of my dorm...that would have caused a huge headache, but no one was injured.







The whole 'roof' section of the walk way will be coming down...just to be safe!

The Son came to visit at College!



It was a quick trip, but he did get the tools from Grandma M, and dinner with me...it was a great evening!

Marigold Traveling Shawl



I'm so thrilled to have finished this glorious shawl...which I blocked on the floor of the dorm room. I am liking this color even better now that it is done.

Traveling Shawl In Montana

I knit in honor of my sister-in-law, Tonia. She is a courageous warrior as she continues her radiation, the final stages of her battle against Breast Cancer. She is a hero.













In true western tradition, I took the Shawl with me as we took our cattle to their summer pasture which looks at the North Eastern side of Glacier National Park. Sorry...the cows are behind me...I wasn't about to get this beauty dirty!


























Highway 2 travels East to West across the Montana area called the Hi Line. (Chester calls itself the Heart of the Hi Line.) These shots are taken at Marias Pass, which is almost 1 mile about sea level. In the background you looking North at Glacier National Park.































My goal for this day was to have the shawl shared in an article...which did happen! Alas, I don't have the link as it was a pdf file...but I hope to have a link or photos from that article later. Until then, here is a photo of the shawl at the Kalispell, MT WWKIP.

Graduation Presents for Paula


I"m still knitting on graduation gifts...and these should help Paula stay warm while she watches football in Missoula. I'm sort of proud that I created the hat pattern to match the scarf!
