on the road.... again

for someone (that would be me) who claims to never get away.... i've been away a lot this month. my latest travels took me to the lovely island of martha's vineyard. if you've never been, it is a destination worth seeking. located off the coast of massachusetts, it has some of the loveliest beaches ever. each has it's own personality, so if you want wild.. go oceanside, peaceful...try the sound, sunsets....clay cliffs... lighthouses... it's all there.

so i packed up way to much knitting and off we went. i finished the birthday present that i'm doing for my naughty sister. several years ago i gifted her with a gator scarf, here's the gator bag. i need to felt it, dry it, then attach some handles. it is self lining with a drawstring top. this was a hoot to knit and i'm hoping that the felting goes well. i'd like some bamboo styled handles but have to wait til it's done to get some accurate measurements. as the temperatures started to soar i switched to some lace knitting. not far along on the scarf yet, but it's much cooler that the worsted weight wool.
