New Hampshire

The child and I took a week and headed to New Hampshire to see my Mom. As I am BEHIND on blogging and getting ready to leave for France, I'm going to squeeze two posts in this week with lots of pictures.

On the way to my Mom's I finished the Opal Chameleon socks. The pattern is the standard sock from Nancy Bush's Folk Socks. My Mom kept talking about how cute they were, so I gave them to her. Notice how well they fit?

We had a great visit. Here is Mom and her guy. Rumor has it that an elopement might be happening soon...

Grandma and the child played outside during the week. The rainwater bucket was fun, as was riding the mule--not a real one, but a small terrain vehicle like a gator. Mom and Jim have lots of land, so it helps them get around, but I really think Mom has fun tooling around the farm.

I have been holding on to these pictures for a while, so time to show my stash enhancement. Remember those seaweed eating North Ronaldsay sheep? Well, after much contemplation, I chose a pattern and yarn from Elizabeth Lovick.

It was hard to get a great picture of the chocolate yarn, but it is darker than the closer up and a little lighter than the group shot. The best part of the yarn is that it is so soft--not a scratchy yarn at all. I picked a scottish tunic pattern from Elizabeth's Patterns for North Ronaldsay Yarn. If you want a fun and interesting yarn, look at Elizabeth's website. The service is fast and the yarn and patterns beautiful.

I think she takes after me.
