Memorial Day Weekend is coming up and we're going to Bozeman to finish off the Western Yarn Shop Hop. And if it doesn't rain too much, we may camp a bit. Scott has been Ebay-happy lately and purchased a new tent, flint things to start fires, a compact camp stove, sleeping pads, and three harmonicas. If he isn't able to try out his new equipment soon, I'm afraid what will happen to him. But I am excited to finish the Shop Hop and to see the LYS in Bozeman. From their websites, the stores look beautiful.

I finished the Garter-Ridged Hat but still need to take photos. I realize I've knit a lot of hats lately, I think at least six in a row. At this rate, I'll be able to wear a different hat everyday this winter lol But you know what, I like knitting hats because there are so many different ways to knit one. I like to practice Fair Isle and play with decreasing at the top. And I'm able to knit and read, which I absolutely LOVE to do! I'm a little over halfway through HP and the Deathly Hallows but I totally forgot how many people die in this book. The story is compelling yet depressing.

I'm still itching to knit a pair of socks, but am intimidated by the skinny needles and heel-turning. I also hope to knit a sweater sometime this summer. I will take the plunge sooner or later, don't you fret. I have a feeling once I knit a pair of socks and a sweater, I'll be invincible ;)

I hope you all have a wonderful, happy and safe Memorial Day Weekend!
