Wilderness Knitting

IMG_0955Lacy Baktus, done in Mad Tosh, colourway a mystery to me as the ball band seems to be missing in action. This is the perfect project for camping – garter stitch, an easy repeat to make it a bit interesting but repetitive enough to do after a good days walking in the mountains. It’s a hard life isn’t it?

IMG_0934It seems young grey jays are not impressed by tofu. I didn’t think these guys were that fussy. (You can tell this one is a youngster, by his ever-so-slightly scruffy feathers. And somewhat cheeky attitude.)

For a significant birthday, (one with a zero in it, and also a five) I really wanted to celebrate in the alpine. We did.

IMG_1006This was the view from the picnic area – Church Mountain in the Mount Baker Wilderness. In the evenings we would sit and watch the light change. This is the view from one direction…

    Happy Birthday! What a wonderful way to celebrate. I don’t think I would have the strength to knit after all that hiking!

      Thank you! And believe me, it was only a few rows, I was pretty beat. Garter stitch, the best fall back. And part of the birthday gift was my dear partner doing most of the cooking, lucky me.

        One of the blessings of getting older is the way that just being in the presence of those you love is the best gift of all. Glad you got to celebrate that way!

      Thank you! It was a lovely way to celebrate for sure. And I am enjoying all the coverage coming out of England today too.
