Because of my dad visiting and wanting to have one last hurrah before school started, we headed to Red Lodge and had a lovely time walking around Wild Bill Lake:
Even I had a lovely time as my knee is much better. I still have a smidge of a hitch when I walk, but to think I am walking with almost no pain is a delight. Notice the marshmallow scarf even came -- a knitting victory! This picture might even turn into our Christmas picture this year, so if you see it again in your mailbox, act surprised, okay?
Here is a sneak peak for the blanket I am working on for fall for Cooperative Press:
The yarn I am working with is Berroco's Vintage Chunky, color Chana Dal, #6192. It is a tremendous washable wool at a reasonable price: only $6.50 for 130 yards at WEBS. I have it at 3.5-4 stitches per inch depending on the stitch. Here is a super cute sweater, Vashon on the cover of booklet #302 Vintage & Vintage Chunky. Key words remaining of this blanket: GARTER STITCH (and many, many hours of audio books past, present and future).
Hope you are enjoying the last rays of summer outside somewhere, even if it is in your own backyard. One definition in the dictionary said "an area that is one's special domain." Yes, indeed.
