I have been a little obsessive about my knitting this last week!
The first and most obsessive project was a little Scarf – I was sampling it for work. It is a new yarn for me from the Alpaca Yarn Company, called Halo Watercolors
I love it; I could not put it down; I loved the feel and look of the yarn; There was nothing there; It is so soft! I knit the scarf and wrote the pattern in 5 days.
They were not quiet days: Two birthdays, my son’s and my husband’s: My daughter came over for a visit: We spent Saturday, wandering around Cathedral Grove and Rathtrevor Beach: I painted the Cleo Collar: Worked on and then reworked the Roses, Roses Pattern: All the time squeezing in the knitting on this little scarf. Obsessive or What?!
Saturday was wonderful. We walked both sides of the highway at Cathedral Grove and both Beth and Gareth were there.
I got some wonderful photographs of them and the Grove as well. As it was a very sunny day, everywhere that the sun came through the grove, the green ferns glowed. The shades of green were incredible. Cameron river was quite low, so we could walk out over the gravel and look up at the blue of the sky and see the greens all around.
Rathtrevor Beach was gorgeous. We had a picnic under the trees and watched an immense kite fly the sky’s. The tide was way out and the beach was dotted with people enjoying the sun. There were even a few tents up for some shade. I always forget how far out the tide goes at this beach. It seemed to go on forever.
We had some friends over for dinner that evening to finish the day. It was a wonderful day.
On Sunday we walked the Lost Lake Trail.
Short, Shaded and beautiful. I got a few good photo’s of the Water Lilies. As we walked through the path there were bright notes of Salmon and Huckleberries interspersed with the incredible greens. The rains followed by the quick weather change has kept the growth lush and green. In the afternoon I painted the Cleo Collar.
In between everything – I knit, I knit and I knit some more!
