We reveled in the gorgeous, forested hikes leading up to the mountains ....
and in the awesome granite climbs, ranging from delicate face climbing to burly crack climbing.
In the evenings, we gathered around the campfire to rest our sore muscles, have a drink, tell a tale, and cook up some yummy dinner.
And, of course, there was knitting all along the way! At every spare moment, I'd get out what looked like a huge, tangled, unpromising mess of alpaca yarn an get in a few stitches.
It's that green sweater, now radically re-engineered. I unraveled it halfway and re-knit it to be a fitted wrap sweater with crocheted trim.
I need to finish knitting the sleeves and crocheting the trim, and then I need to add a tie at the waist (in the photo above, it was just held closed with a stick). And then it'll be finished! A happy salvaging of the project, I'd say!
Though perhaps bit reminiscent of Peter Pan ...
