Wow so lots is going on and I have not blogged any of it. I would show you finished knitting if my camera battery had not died or I could find the cable for my crackberry. Its been one of those kind of days. I have new knitting and yarn photos to take but see above. I will fix this little problem today.

The Sock Summit yarns were all done until I heard they were having a contest. Have to see what I can come up with for that. I did 3 colorways you can only get there. I was listening to Jimi Hendricks that day. Can't wait to show you.
Above is Monkey Boy and Jan, Moms guide. They are good buddies. Jan got to meet her first horse on our trip. A 30 year old Belgian named Fred. The boss cowboy at Snow Mountain Ranch was just in love with Jan. He loves dogs and wanted Jan to meet his buddy Fred. Neither one of them seemed to care one way or another.

Pretty cool right? I had not heard of this site before this. I love it. Always cool when people feature indie artist. Thank you guys so much!

And we are home

We had a great time on our trip with Mom and Dad. Bobo has taken to calling Dad The Grampster. The Grampster, Grandma and Jan love the Rockies as much as we do. I will have video for you soon. We saw Moose! 4 big ones. Very cool.
More to come. I have to unpack and work tonight.

Colorado Dreaming

When ever we go to Colorado we try to find a reason to stay. This time the dreaming has started before we even get there. Can you tell we love it there? By this time tomorrow we should be seeing the mountains. Can Not Wait!

For knitting I am taking the cotton wrap I started just for this trip, 2 pairs of socks in progress, yarn for 2 more pairs of socks, an almost finished fair isle hat of my own design and yarn for some fingerless gloves. Should be plenty. and I have some sock scraps to knit into squares for the blanket of many colors.

Sorry about the lack of interesting post lately. I hope to get back to more regular posting when we get back. See you in about a week!

packing up

So the kiddos and I have been busy getting everything ready for our trip. I am pretty bummed because I checked the weather forecast for our week in Winter Park. They are calling for temps in the high 50's low 60's and thunderstorms the whole week. The idea of being stuck in the condo with the kids and my folks for a week is not a good one. We don't go to the mountains to sit in the condo. Please weather gods please not 8 days of storms. Please let us have a little good weather to enjoy. Please let there be some sun so the kids can swim and we can hike and fish. Pretty Please? The weather here at home has been pretty wet since school let out. The kids have been stuck inside so much they are driving each other crazy. Please Mother Nature give us a little break. This is the only vacation we get. Please don't ruin the whole thing.

The Tony's

Did you see the Tony's Sunday night? I thought it was a pretty good show. The Mamma Mia cast was pretty bad though. Did you see Bret Michaels get clocked in the face by one of the flying set pieces? This is why you should always pay attention to the crew. The stage is a dangerous place. Looks like Bret learned that the hard way. Oops.
