Summer is here.

My husband and I are campers and kayakers and generally outdoorsy people. For the previous two weeks we have been doing what we love. First weekend we headed up to Victoria on the clipper and walked around for two days. I, of course, found a yarn store.
Beehive Wool store is wonderful well stocked and inviting haven.... I took home 2 skeins of yarn one for me for my traveling socks I started in Disneyland and one for David for a new pair of travelling socks....
OceanEdge and I spent a great deal of time enjoying the good weather and walked the waterfront at least 5 times that weekend, so I was surprised to see a little yarn bombing arrive without me seeing who set it.

I cast on for a shirt that I wanted for a long time it is the Yosemite pullover. I cast on the night before the trip and on the way out on the clipper sat next to two other knitters. I ended up re knitting the sweater for at least 4 times but I worked on it all weekend. It's slow going but I hope to have it done before fall.

 Last week we went with the next door neighbor and his son to the Garlic festival in Ocean shores....We headed out Saturday night after my work, hurried out to a campsite in Twin harbor it was great and the camp fire was perfect for simple knitting I am working on a baby hat with the left over yarn from the matching booties.

 Sadly the Garlic festival was not very good, there were about 20 tents and 6 places for food and the food was less then gourmet. So we packed up and went to fly some kites....
My tail from my red barron kite tangled with OceanEdge's jet tail and I brought it down. :) He caught me on camera untangling....what a knitter knows how to do so well...
