Vacation Recap

Wow, what a great time we had last week in Denver, Colorado. That is the longest road trip I have taken in years.  I forgot how much knitting time that it gives you. I am ready to go again.  I really enjoyed visiting with family and old friends. I was able to reconnect with a BFF from college. 

First I have a picture of the pair of socks that I finish a few days before my trip, they are the Traveling Socks -Easter edition.

Then I was able to complete my pink BFF socks on the trip home and had to pull out my shawl (no pictures yet) with about 3 hours of drive time left.

While in Denver, I hit 3 yarn stores.  They were very unique and different. The first one I only got needles as I do the magic loop method and the needles I was knitting the pink socks on were 32" inches instead of the normal 40" inches.  I was so glad to change those out. 

On Thursday we went to Parker, Colorado for the 2nd knitting shop. It was great, the owner was very friendly and helpful.  I look forward to going back there next time. I picked up beautiful sock yarn and the owner gave my hubby the sticker as he is a Doctor Who fan.

On Friday, we went to the local mall and did the tourist type shopping with a hoodie for me and then we hit the container store. That was a lot of fun.

On Saturday, we headed out to Lakewood, Colorado for the 3rd yarn store and felt right at home. The Recycled Sheep was so warm and friendly. I got two skeins of sock yarn and a great new coffee mug.

We headed back to Utah on Sunday and the miles flew by on my knitting needles. We are already trying to figure out when we can go back.

End of Day one

I love road trips, all that time for knitting and listening to audio books! I started today at the first repeat and I am finishing the day on the heel flap. I can't wait to see what gets done tomorrow!

Father's Day

Well we celebrate father's day a little differently this year. On Sunday June 12th we met with the hubby's side of the family to celebrate Father's Day. Then on Saturday of this week, we had a cookout at my parents. So on the actually day, P and I went to the movies after church then we went to look at all the overflowing rivers in the area.

It was a great day to take a walk in the park.

Summer Adventures

I found this old friend in my drawer at work today and thought I would have some fun with him this summer. Take him place and show our adventures.  So we are starting today with a little game of ball in the office. 
Anybody have a good name for him? Otherwise it is going to be Red!

Knitting Update

Well I finally got around to taking pictures of my Hermione's Everyday Socks that I finished back in May. I have dragged them around forever in my bag and today I finally remembered to grab a picture of them. 
Now they can take their bath and be put away for the fall/winter time.  I like the overall pattern but not the heel.  Next time I would just do my normal heel, instead of the one in the pattern.
