Finally Back

Posted in Finished Objects at 3:38 pm by merknits

I’ve been back from vacation for a while, but have felt a bit overwhelmed with catching up at work and at home.  Luckily the husband is back in town too!

We went to Seattle for a few days to enjoy the cool weather and meet up with some friends from college.  We had gorgeous weather and especially enjoyed a day trip to Mt. Rainier.  I finished a new hat just in time for our hike – it was much too hot to wear it, but I got some good FO pictures!

Pattern: Slouch for All Seasons
Yarn: Louisa Harding Grace Silk and Wool (1.5 balls)
Notes: I couldn’t resist the beautiful color of the yarn, especially since it was on sale.  It’s so nice and soft and worked perfectly for the hat.  The pattern made a great traveling project!

We also went to Bainbridge Island and stopped by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas where they had some great yarns and patterns on sale.  Here’s what I picked up:

My current project (Catriona) is a bit slow going, so perhaps I’ll save pictures of that for next time.  Hope everyone has a nice weekend!
