Another mission I have been on is to use up my stash before Rhinebeck. I can't wait for Rhinebeck!!!! This year we will be camping up at Rhinebeck so I will be there ALL weekend instead of a day trip. I am so excited!!!! Since we have gotten home we have been getting as much beach time in as we can before school starts. Even if it is just for an hour or two a day. It is nice to take a break from work and go play on the beach for a little while. The temperature has been beautiful at the beach and I've actually been able to get a lot of knitting done there!!!! Keep that shore breeze coming!
The first shawl I have photographed is still in the works. I have made it with my handspun Loop Bulls Eye Bump and cormo. I purchased the fiber at Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. I have to spin up some more cormo to finish the next part of the shawl up. I HEAVILY modified the pattern that I found on Ravelry and of course since it was a travel knit I didn't keep any notes so I'm sorry for not passing on the modifications.
For reading I am still listening to the final book in the Outlander series "Written in My Own Heart's Blood". Right now they are right down the road from me. Currently in the book is the Battle of Monmouth. I am planning on photographing my new patterns at the church where Clair is right now in the book with her triage tent. It is only a few miles from where I live. I think I might just stalk the area until Starz goes there for the filming of their series. I wonder if I will get to see the real life Clair & Jamie!!!!! I think that might be about 15 years away though at the rate they are releasing episodes.
Another fun thing this week was I won a give away from the Knitmore Girls Podcast. I got the cutest project bag, tote, notions bag and goodies. I have to send out a congrats to Jasmine for the birth of her son. I'd say she got my free stuff out just in time! I can't wait to see T-Rex in all his hand knits :)
Have a wonderful day and happy knitting!
