I am currently participating in the 2010 Knitting Olympics. The chosen event? Short sleeve cardigan. Short Lucky by Baby Cocktails in Ultra Alpaca is the chosen pattern! Progess so far? Two and half skeins into a four skein project. If you to are participating... Awesome for you and may you complete your said endeavor! Let me. Know what your are working on and your progress!
One thing that can be said is that I am thankful that 2009 is finally gone and behind all of us. I hope that 2010 brings all new adventures, great memories, and happiness. So as we move foward into the New Year and decade please take care of yourself by making your well being (physically, emotionally, and mentally) a number one priority in your life. Everything else will fall into place.
For those who know me and my little family personally it won’t be a huge surprise that we’ve taken up another activity so we can enjoy the outdoors. Typically in the past we have limited our hiking activities to our trips to Montana. Late this summer DH and I were discussing how much opportunities we have here in Washington to enjoy hiking. Not to mention that Idaho and Oregon are only a hop skip and a jump away. Day hiking having less of a time commitment than our normal camping trip is a huge bonus also. I do get a little knitting done on these trips. DH usually drives so it is a toss up between sleeping and knitting for me. I’ll be honest though, sometimes sleeping prevails knitting in the car more than it should! So far we have done 3 hikes. Almost Buck Ridge, Blue Mountains, Washington; Hanford Reach, Washington; and Eagle Creek to Tunnel Falls, Hood River, Oregon. This coming weekend we are going to do the Naches Loop near Mt. Rainer.
