Camping and Knitting

I spent last weekend tent camping in my favorite campground. It was soooooooo relaxing to sit by a campfire and watch chipmunks play while knitting socks. Boy, if someone would only PAY me to do that full-time. But then it would be a job and not nearly as much fun. *LOL*

I'm up past the heel on my Swan Song socks now and actually knit the toe on my Dragonfly socks which are next on my agenda. I started the Dragonfly socks because I could knit the toe while visiting with other campers without losing my place in a lace pattern. I love the way the Swan Song socks are working up, but I'm too single-minded to work the lacy pattern and carry on a conversation at the same time. They're going to be worth it, though.

I hope to get in some serious knitting time this weekend. I'll be off four days, so I'd really love to finish up the Swan Song. We'll see how it goes.

Have a great holiday weekend, everyone!


  1. Yay for warm weather, knitting and friends! Have a great weekend!

  2. I always thought you made camping sound wonderful...but when you add knitting to the really is!
