Vitamin D & Knitting

Today is another beautiful August day and I felt the need to let my body make some Vitamin D. Now of course I had to get in some knitting while my body was working for me ;) Yummmmmm CASHMERE! What is better to knit while laying in the sun? We have this beautiful Handspun Cashmere at Knitting Bee and I love it!

Trips and Knitting!

We had a great time camping on the Umpqua River! We will definitely go back to this spot. I knit on my dress a bit and also worked on other things.
When we got home from camping I found out there was going to be a celebration of life for my Aunt Laura, that meant another trip the following weekend! I also had to start the cardigan I will be teaching in the fall. So the dress is on hold while I work on Monte Rosa by Isabell Kraemer. I love this pattern :) Anyway here are some pictures of my wild family!

How to recognize a crazy knitter girl!

This is Steffanie! We work together :) We had a lot of fun yesterday taking silly pictures with my phone! You see it was very cold here yesterday. Okay it was very cold for Portland, 26 degrees is cold for here! So Steffanie put on her hand-knits dropped the kids off at school and headed to work! Well when she told me that she had on no less then 4 different hand-knits, on her upper body alone. I told her we must get a picture for the blog! So on went the knits and for our silly little photo shoot. So you can recognize a crazy knitter girl if you see someone wearing more then two hand knits that don't match! Okay, maybe they are not the crazy knitter but they must know and be loved by a crazy knitter :)

Toadstools!

So I was driving to work yesterday with the hubby in tow (we only have one car and he needed it later so he had to drop me off) and I slammed on the brakes and made a quick u-turn in an apartment complex parking lot! My husband kind of freaked out because I was turning around and said "What are you doing?" I kept repeating "I need to take a picture!!!!!". LOL, needless to say he thought I was crazy because he didn't spot what I saw! TOADSTOOLS!!!! LOL, I had never seen one in real life and they are sooooo cool. I had to touch them because I thought they were fake! Seriously I was looking around like I was on Candid Camera :) When I got back in the car after taking photos he had to admit that they were pretty cool! I am sure lots of you have seen them in real life but I hadn't and I love stuff like that :)
