Slow and Steady

Lookie what I got in the mail!

And since the lovely people at Bea Ellis Knitwear love me so much (that's what I'm telling myself), they sent me two free balls!

Now, I'm not a fun fur fan. Frankly, I find it tacky and not something I want to knit with, but I'm turning over a new leaf for Burning Man purposes. This sexy furry yarn will be transformed into some fun furry bikinis and halters. Fingers crossed they come out... presentable.

Next up for the needles is a new pair of socks. Going to attempt pepperknit's Leyburn Socks. Anyone done them?

And for a dose of Vail.... A sign I saw prior to dipping into my first backcountry experience for the Minturn Mile = a way from one of Vail's peaks down through some fun "louges" that spits out steps from... a bar.

Oh the view.

And been barely knitting.

Almost 3 months and no blog posts. What have I been up to? Well, skiing, eating, drinking, laughing, going broke. It's a wonderful life out here in Vail, kids. And today and yesterday I have decided that I will be planning and carrying out some great burning man knitted ideas. Anything you'd like to see me try to knit... go for it!

Here are the jaywalkers that were hibernating under my bed while I was being swept off my feet by The BoSox Fan.

Yes, the image is horrendous. Yeah iPhones.

Burning Man list: (critiques/additions welcome)
- handcuffs
- furry halter top
- criss-cross shorties

Glad to be back!
