Luckily, we were there early enough to be entertained throughout breakfast by the busy hummingbirds. By the time we left, so had the wee ones. We spent almost as time with our cameras out as we did eating breakfast.
Margene had me stand up for a photo shoot of my newly-finished top.
But it wasn’t long before one of the little hummers shooed me away to get at those flowers.
Silver Fork Lake was as lush and beautiful as I’ve ever seen it – the meadow revegetation project has certainly been a success. There were lots of critters like this little ground squirrel and beautiful blue damselfly,
as well as opportunities to just stand (or sit) and enjoy the incredible view.
And what a view it is!
Pattern: Drops 78-2 “Top in Paris with or without sleeves”
Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton-Ease, Terra Cotta, 3 skeins
Needles: US 6
Modifications: Knitted the medium size but at a smaller gauge to get something between small and medium. Added some single crochet to the armholes to counteract the rolling of the acrylic-blend yarn. Only knitted the collar to 2 inches instead of 3.
This was a quick, easy (but rather boring) knit – good for SnB. The top is simple and basic, so it will be great for layering under cardigans or blazers for cooler months. One more project knit from the stash! Yippee!
