I am knitting the softest imaginable scarf/shawl thingie. (The official term for this type of neck knitting.)
Malabrigo silkpaca lace yarn. Wonderful stuff.
It is just row after row of garter stitch, increasing one at the start of each row – a truncated triangle because I started with 75 stitches.
I worked on it during our weekend camping trip, the last before work and school officially start next week.
Yarn and dog both spent a lot of time at the river. I was the Official Photographer for Teens Jumping Into Glacially Cold Rivers. Theo was Official Barker at Boys Jumping Into Freezing Water.
Of course, they didn’t always jump voluntarily.
While they swam and splashed, I knit rows and rows of cloud-light alpaca and silk. I’ve 800 yards of the yarn, so it is going to go on for a while.
I did stop for hikes and s’mores, but then was back at it.
This is actually replacement knitting as I’ve ransacked my house several times and can’t find my other on-the-go knitting project. It has to be somewhere, but it continues to elude me.
I did unearth other neglected knitting projects and pulled one out to be the home knitting project. My purple sweater now has a sleeve. So close to done!
I’m sad to be nearing the end of camping season, but so glad that we bought the little pop-up trailer last spring. We haven’t traveled far and wide, but we’ve discovered and revisited some great corners of Washington and Oregon nearby. The boys complain a little bit before hand (generally due to the lack of WiFi) but they mostly have a great time once we are out there.
Even when it is really, really, really cold.
