Highway Knitting

We’re home!

We got home last night after what felt like a (relatively) short drive. The trip that usually takes three nights only took two this time. That’s because instead of driving the entire Alaska Highway, we cut a loop off by taking the Stewart-Cassiar. It’s a full half-day shorter, cutting one night out of the journey. What a difference! imageTo keep my hands occupied whenever it was my turn to be the passenger, I knitted up this little neck warmer. imageThe pattern is called Bleeding Hearts Cowl, and you can find it on Ravelry. It’s knit with Malabrigo wool that I purchased at the Itsy-Bitsy Yarn Store in Whitehorse. Don’t you love the name?

Honesty, if I had known this fabulous little shop was going to open, I never would have moved away, lol! Well no…not really. But I do pop in every time I’m in town and always find something to love and bring home with me.

Now if you’ll excuse me, there are two months of summer weeds to pull out of the garden! Ciao!

  1. I am in awe. I tried knitting a few winters ago. All thumbs and decided to stick with quilting 🙂

    Oh, and I meant to say I LOVE that color on the yarn! You would definitely need a neck warmer in Alaska. I don’t know about where you are now. =)

    Has it been two months already? Were you ready to come home? I don’t think I would have been! I guess this means summer is almost over. School starts here on August 6, so no matter what the weather is, summer will be done.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
