Update 37

A little bit late this week because we were out of wifi range until today.  We were camping at Dead Horse Ranch State Park and exploring around the area.  We had great weather, beautiful sunsets and fantastic food cooked over the fire.

So, no knitting at all in the last week, but I can show you the test knit I finished at the beginning of my holidays.  They are called Queen of Tarts and it was an easy and enjoyable knit.  Thanks to Knitterarium for another great pattern.

I have spun all my natural Friesian fibre on my drop spindle and I am half way through my topaz fibre. 

Here are a few shots from our trip.  Our son leaves us tomorrow and we will continue on to ....somewhere for another three and a half weeks.  I have to say I love Arizona. 

This last picture is samples of spinning from the museum at Toozigoot National Monument - a wonderful site to walk among the pueblo ruins.    Their drop spindle and mine look very similar!

Until next week.

Update 36

We are in Needles California as I quickly write this update.  Wifi is slow so no pics today but imagine lots of amazing desert and cactus scenes.

We have driven about 900 km since getting the truck back and all is well. (Knock on wood).

We are heading to Arizona and are just a stone's throw away. Literally.

On the crafting front I did spin up Agate beach and I am on the last triangle of my wingspan. 

I will check in with you all when wifi is available. 

Did I mention the cacti are amazing?
Cause they are!!!

And it is warm and sunny here. 

Win. Win.
