Back from Boulder

The Colorado trip was fabulous. Picnicking, hiking, making mojitos, visiting a goat farm/dairy, catching up with old friends, playing sheepshead, what more could you want? Maybe a yarn shop visit, but there just wasn't enough time.

BTW, their applewood smoked chevre is quite delicious.

Ouzel Falls, Rocky Mountain National Park

There's still some snow left up in the Rocky Mountains.

Paul and I taking a breather from hiking at Ouzel Falls.

I knit away at my Donyale Socks over the weekend, with not too many inches to show for it. I'll spare you the photos. I did manage to come away with very blue hands, though!

Startitis set in, so now there are some Waterloose Socks in progress. The yarn is Cider Moon's Glacier again, in the "Magnolia" colorway. The subtle feather and fan pattern will benefit greatly from blocking!

Snow looks nice on a day when it is over 90. It looks like you had fun though. And socks are addictive aren't they?

I love your socks - I will have to try this pattern. I'm so excited with the Cidermoon - awe-some! In Wisconsin we are plenty cold come fll - so I think I'll knit on - thanks for your feedback on my socks!

That chevre sounds delish! And I love that colorway of Glacier. Ah, Glacier. Quickly becoming my Favorite Yarn Ever.

Love Boulder - they have a wonderful independent bookstore. Hope you got up to Estes Park, to the Chautauqua or at least a walk through the campus. Almost makes me want to pack up and move.

I really like the colors in the yarn that you're using for the socks. And CO looks beautiful. I'm hoping we'll get out there sometime since it's right next to KS. Off course, we have to drive across this big ol' state! :) Maybe for vacation next summer. If the gas prices ever go down. Are you teaching this summer at all, or just working on the dissertation?
