Knitting in Nature

Perfect moment: Wilderness. Knitting between rock climbs. Falcon crying overhead. Isis curled up my side ...

Sitting upon my situpon, no less! And here's my view of the scene. I'm not making anything in particular, just swatching for my next project with Earth Arts indigo-dyed wool yarn

The story is that Mountain Man and I went up to Isolation Canyon for a beautiful Sunday of rock climbing. If you want to get a sense of the vastness of these rock walls, you can check out the photo from the last time we were there. (The cliffs behind me in that photo are the ones we climbed today.)

I finished knitting the baby blanket on the drive there - at last! And I love it! I didn't have time to photograph it earlier in the day, though, and by the time we made it back to the car, the sun was down and the stars were up.

This is such a gorgeous spot and the colors on those rock alone would be inspiration for even the most dried up soul. Hope to see the blanket soon!
