Last weekend I went camping with friends and had a wonderful time. We went to a small camp site called Rancho Jurupa out in Riverside. This little campground is literally right in Riverside City. About 2 minutes outside the historic area.
It's a cute little place that I hear is usually quiet. We happened to pick a weekend with girl scouts camping and a couple of family reunions. Everyone was having a wonderful time and that meant noise. The noise didn't bother me except for at 6:30 am on Sunday morning. (Whoever was having a blast laughing at that hour is a sick sick person). Just saying.
Here are a couple of photos:
Our little camp site.
"Ruck" This creature looks like a rooster and a duck got together for some sweet sweet loving and he was the result. Hence our name for him- Ruck. Very docile and friendly, would even come swimming across the lake to Lisa if she called him.
The Lake. For fishing and not swimming.
For Works in Progress this week I have some progress on my Hitchhiker to show you.
I'm using size 3 addi lace needles and am getting used to them. I think I am a bamboo girl. I knit much faster and don't have finger pain from the needle sitting on my knuckle with bamboo. I do get the pain with the addi's. I know people love them. So I am giving them a fair shot and am making sure I'm not holding on with the newbie death grip.
I've also been doing some spinning. I believe it is white cheviot from Paradise Fibers. But it could be another fiber I bought the same day. Don't remember off hand and the bag is at home. I'll let you know if it is something different.
I don't take a break to move the sliding hook often enough. So I get these bumps. Mike asked me if I was making something in particular because of the bumps. Thought it might be a technique or something. When I told him it is because I don't stop and move the hook he said "oh. I guess you should do that more often. Isn't it going to be a problem". It probably will when I attempt to ply. But that's later and I'll deal with it then. It might have been a good time to mention the wooly winder and the automatic loading feature...hmmm.
Anyway the same pile is still in my WiPs bag. I've got 4 pairs of socks. Finished turning the heel on the red anklets. Haven't touched anything else.
