The week before last we went to Bend, OR for a small family vacation. We had so much fun the 4 of us and my daughter's best friend who is a daughter to us.
We starter the trip with a car game which we had not played in years - since we had at least 4 hours to drive ahead of us.... While we all played a guessing game I started my newest project ... This time something for myself ...
The Turnagain cowl is a patten I bought almost 2 years ago when we ( me and my knitting fiends) went on a "filed trip" to the yarn crawl around our city Portland, OR.
I just love this pattern and although it did take me 2 years to start I'm loving to make it and I think it will be one that I'm going to wear a lot ... It is not double knit but it resemble it because you knit a very tall cowl, fold it in half and graft the first row to the left... I will show you the final project when I'm done with it ... Promise :)
We went on nice walks, had nice yummy dinners, the kids and husband went floating the river ( while I had a couple of hours for myself to knit and crochet) and we had a blast together...
That is what life is all about for me ...
Great moments ... Great family times pet together.
After we came back I had dinner with my blog friends who are so dear to me ...Teresa, Gracie and Betsy. Betsy is here from Spokane and we had such a wonderful time. We did what we always do ... Again ... Had a great time together ... We toasted to our dearest friend Meredith and exchanged gifts ( another tradition I think we can't break).
Gracie and Betsy brought me a house warming gift and I couldn't wait till I got home to place them in a special place. I do love my friends and the time we spend together ... I'm so grateful for having met them and I have to say they are a blessing to me :)
This time we waited so long before we saw each other I really missed them. I hope we will see each other soon again.
Hope you are having a fantastic weekend and that summer is just perfect for you.
Thanks so much for all your comments ... I'm so happy you stopped by to "see" me today :)
