I have a mothering confession, I am a overly anxious Mama who had not left her almost 20 mos. old daughter overnight until this previous Thursday. I knuckled down and thought hey what’s one night right, she and I will live. Ok… it may have been a decision I was pushed too, both by my husband and my job but I’ll own it. I suppose.
Of course this is Bristol Bay in winter…. and I got weathered in until Saturday afternoon in King Salmon/Naknek!
Luckily I stayed at the Alaska Sportsman’s Bear Trail Lodge.
Not too shabby…
I also found my new knitting project while spending a
ton of few hours on Ravelry and Pinterest…Behold the Owl Hat…
Pattern can be found here.
Before you get too ahead of yourself thinking – wow she’s fast! This is how far along I am….
I just cast on, isn’t that yarn amazing?
I bought it on my last trip to Juneau, in this cute yarn shop called Seaside Yarns.
It’s hand dyed Merino Cashmere made by ~A Tree Hugger’s Wife~ A Juneau, Alaska Yarn Company!
Stay tuned, I will post a picture when I’m finished making it up.
