Knitting Hopes and Dreams

OK, so no takers on the carefree knitting holiday thing... well, I thought it was a great idea, and furthermore, I am going to do it. I even have some things picked out: Toast and Toasty wrist warmers, Seafoam Towels, socks, Fourteen Cowl and Ridged Lace Cowl, and maybe a scarf.

Coming up next week we are going to New Mexico for some hiking and exploring in the Gila Wilderness:

and then we'll travel north to Albuquerque to visit Oma and Opa (my parents). Little guy has fall break so we are going. We are looking forward to this trip. The little guy will miss a soccer game and 2 practices, but it'll be ok. I am bringing him plenty of nightly reading and even some math facts for those evenings!! ha ha - don't tell him....

Well, I guess I'll even post a picture of a half done tesserae sock:

Done in Sanguine Gryphon's Eidos sock yarn in Phaedo colorway. Kind of a gray- green. Great yarn, by the way!

Hmm, I started thinking that I am going to start writing writing is so rusty - downright normal anymore...

Well I'm off.

I'm jealous you get to go somewhere for fall break! We'll be in town, so say hello to an autumn leaf for me, will ya?
Haven't learned to knit yet, but I am starting a new quilt...gotta hurry up and piece it before its date with the longarm quilter!

I love your background and the music. Everything looks great. Very pretty yarn for your socks. Wish I had the patience to knit such beautiful projects! Have a great trip.
