Heading North

 I am all packed and repacked. As is so often the case, I changed my mind and took out things and replaced them with better things. I got out of bed last night and remembered a bunch of new quilts which just have to come with me. I'll label them when I get there.

The really important decision is the Knitting Project For The Trip. White? Yes, I need a white scarf and this one is called Pimpelliese and it requires paying attention, and a row counter. But so worth it. The yarn is 50/50 Silk/Wool fingering from and is luscious to knit. It is my favorite scarf, the Baktus, but with a nice lace edge knit at the same time as the scarf.

While I am not looking forward to the long drive, I am excited that I will be visiting fellow blogger Cindra, and staying with her tonight. WE are going to a wonderful restaurant, a rare treat for me these days, living so far from town. I am bringing produce from the garden...tomatoes, green peppers and one wonderful yellow squash which is secretly growing in my flower bed. Don't tell the bugs.


  1. Thank you for posting the link to this pattern. I am tempted, very tempted, to start one soon.

    Enjoy your trip.

  2. Happy trails, sweet Mel.

  3. Have a great time!!

  4. Have a wonderful time. Your students are so lucky to have you for an instructor. Wish I could come! Great variation on the Baktus!!!

  5. The white scarf is lovely. Is there anything you CAN'T do???
