Evelyn Shawl Update

We were up at the Deer Creek Cabins this weekend, making sure our renters were alright and relaxing ourselves. Ntm enjoying the noon/after noon thunder showers cooling everything down for a bit. I brought the Evelyn Shawl I am working on and some embroidery – for the hotter parts. As it was, I was able to work on the Evelyn Shawl quite a bit, to the point I have 6 more rows and bind off. However, I started my last skein of Juniper Moon Farm chunky a few rows back . . . .so now I am playing yarn chicken.

Sitting on the back porch of the “3rd Cabin”. My favorite morning

hiding spot out of the sun.

Aaaand we have a storm rolling in. Oh darn.

Messenger Shawl – Finished!

For Mother’s Day this year I did something a little different and took my Mom to Yarn Scout for her gift. She picked the Messenger Kit by Stephanie Shiman, a Wonderland Yarns kit. Though it took a couple months, I finished it in time (barely) for my parent’s 4th of July visit.

In which my brother wanted to be in the picture, so there is

his hand.

She really likes it. 🙂

An Evening Stuck in Big Sky

Eric, Toby and I went to Big Sky for the Farmer’s market last night and got stuck up there when a semi full of decking materials had the misfortune of overturning. What made clean up even longer was the other semi hauling logs over turned about a quarter mile north from that. So, we ended up stuck in Big Sky for 5 hours. I got a lot of knitting done, just sayin’.

We drove around a bit after dinner to kill time. There

really isn’t a horrible view there. This is towards the Yellowstone Club.

This is where we rejoined the line, just at the turn off for

Lone Peak Brewing, where we had dinner.

Toby was exhausted. It is so rough being a dog.

Nothing Finished Yet

And that is okay. Kind of. I am squirreling in my projects again. Most of the things I have been working on for myself I have put on hold for a bit, while I get some Yule and Christmas gifts done so I am not overwhelmed closer to the time of. No one likes to be finishing their gifts on the drive to their parents house . . . . which may have happened several times already. This year I will be prepared! Honest. (hahahahahahahaha)

I started another Graham hat this week – Yarn Bee Dazzling

in Sunburst/40. I just could resist the sparkles and colorway.

Fair warning – may be making A Lot of Graham hats for gifts.

I do not know exactly what it is, regardless, it was

a cool sight for our Saturday drive around.

Crazies and Fiber

Today I got to go to the first annual Big Timber fiber fest! As this is it’s first year, it was a little small, but it was a lot of fun. My husband accompanied me on this trip, so he got to simply exist and people watch to his heart’s content, though I did hear him talking fiber with some of the ladies there. Guess he really does listen when I go off on fiber tangents.  🙂

We got to watch a sheep sheering demo – the lady sheering started because there was

no one else to sheer them.

Hitting the Crazies on the way back.

Yarn I picked up at the fest. The cones are mill spun, but where

a really good price. The purple is Merino/silk blend.
