I'm glad you had such a nice, relaxing camping trip.


I'm glad this year's camping trip was a success for you. Now that my kids are grown and I've put in my duty, I know what you mean about enjoying little kids as long as they are someone else's. (I feel the same about dogs.) Love those little redheads!


I'm glad you had such a good time, especially since you weren't expecting to enjoy it that much. But ... storebought marshmallow roasting sticks? What is this world coming to?


It's always nice when you anticipate a sucky vacation and it turns out great; so much better than the other way around!


I'm so glad it was a success!
I'm assuming the Malabrigo yumminess was completed successfully?
And I'm lovin' that boot sock! Did you write up the pattern? Or at least a chart or something for the leg? Can't you just see that lovely dark yarn we both liked of mine knit up in that leg for a "regular" sock?
and thanks... I don't __feel__ that much like an accomplished knitter, but it's fun to think I can play one on TV if I have to .. :-)
Say hello to M and L for me..


I'm glad you had a great time! I can't believe you can wear long sleeves and have a fire in July! I think we need to move to Vermont :) And who knew that you and the hubby could just hang out and you would have all that knitting time! The socks look awesome, did you make up the pattern?


Awesome pics! I'm glad you had a great time camping. Personally, I've always felt that camping was staying at a Ramada Inn without room service...

The boot sock is AWESOME! Lucky guy!


It's good to have you back! What a wonderful week...I'm very envious!! Nice sock;-)


Jessie - those babies are SO SO cute. Makes me ALMOST want to have another....

And I am very glad you had fun on your camping trip :)


Looks like you had a wonderful vacation! The last time I went on vacation with all of my husband's family, I had the same joy of watching his brother and sister running after their kids, while we sat in our beach chairs and just relaxed. Ahhhh! The sock is great.

So glad the camping trip turned out to be so much fun. It looks like a beautiful spot and those babies are the sweetest although they do make for a lot more work while camping.

I really love the boot socks too. It's really too bad you won't have enough yarn for the second sock.

You've been busy while I've been outside! The goats are awesome. They look like fun too. I hope you gave Larry heck. Naughty bird bring the cops down on you.


Fun! The reason you state is the reason I don't like camping at this time. The Bug fell in the pool this weekend too (I was right there and he wasn't even in long enough to get the top of his head wet) but now I don't like swimming either. Bleh.

Lovely sock! I'm glad you had a great time! :)


I can't wait until Sam is older so we can finally go camping for real! I want to be able to really enjoy myself and not have to watch the kids continuously. Emily is 4 now, so we don't have to watch her like a hawk, but Sam is only 1, so she'd be in the mud, in the fire, eating rocks, etc. It would not be fun! For now, we just go visit my mom & dad when they're camping nearby. A few hours is about all we can take. :)


Welcome home! Nice to hear all had a great time. Your sock is really nice! I left one little thing for you to do at my blog ;)


Love the boot sock pattern -- hope you'll write it down and publish it at some point.

And thanks for the Nona grafting link -- very cool. Bookmarked for the next time I need to do it....


I do love the boot sock pattern -- please tell us you took notes and will offer the pattern! I was wondering why we hadn't heard from you in so long -- so glad you had a good time. Camping is a favorite activity in my house (we have an RV) and it is so true -- how often do we just hang out w/ anyone, let alone our spouses? Mine still gives me heck for knitting tho!


The trip sounds like lots of fun. I can't wait until you can reveal the gift knitting. Everybody should take a week or so and just sit. The world would be a better place.


Welcome back! I'm so glad the trip turned out well! Nothing like thwarted poor expectations. :) I love the look of the boot sock. I think they'll look great with a contrasting toe.
Can't wait to see the chickies!

Yay you had fun!! I'm guessing your camper was nowhere near 'Big Wheel Hill'? ;o)


Okay, your husband is a freakin' genius! But I guess you already knew that . . . :)


Welcome back, Jessie! Were you guys at 10 Acres? Looks like it a bit. Did all that knitting include a Gothic Leaf shawl? I am still cranking on mine, but the end is finally in sight.
Love to the goats! ;-p


Hey there Jessie! I'm happy y'all had a great time, and I love the scientific method used to measure your yarn amount! LOL

OMG! It's Carrie

ummm your husband is gorgeous - and I'm very jealous of your home and family and animals. beautiful!
