A Little Catch Up

Realized the other day that I finished this before vacation but forgot to share it with you. 
It is a wool wrap that I did take with me to Alaska and was happy to have it the chilly day we cruised Glacier Bay. It's the Yowza Weigh It Shawl 4 from Ravelry. I really enjoyed this knit, with lovely Miss Babs yarn in the Funny Papers colourway.

Just a few days late I finished my July shorties, and while the patterning was a bit challenging, they fit great. This is my second attempt at knitting socks two at a time with a much more satisfactory result this time. This pattern, Castaway Socks, is also from Ravelry. 

We were barely home from holidays when we decided to go camping over the long weekend. It gave me a chance to not only knit on my socks but get this round of Rosette 4 finished. 
I am just getting to the holiday pictures now but after that, nothing will be cast on in favour of finishing this rosette and moving on to 5! 

While camping at a new to us site, we went on this lovely boreal forest interpretive trail walk. Originally developed in 1994 by the local Junior Forest Rangers.

Was a lovely surprise to come across this towards the end of the trail. 
The campground manager said he had not seen any bears this season, but we sure saw evidence that they were around. 

And this loveliness is my current WIP! Finally, finally getting to the painting in my sewing room. The itch to sew is very motivating at this point!
I now have the ceiling painted and the first coat on all the walls, tomorrow will be the second coat and first coat on the trim. Tuesday will be the second coat on the trim. Back to work Wed/Thursday so Friday I will begin to put the room back together. 
Only to move on to painting the two other rooms after that!

Have a great week!


  1. WTG on your hexies and knitting! I love the photo from the interpretive trail. Have a Great Week too!

  2. Your wrap looks so cozy! The interpretive walk sounds interesting. Where did you camp?
