Its a cloudy windy Sunday, it rained a bit last night, but it would be nice it rained a bit more. I just woke up from a nap and had a dream it was pouring. I was a bit disappointed when I realized it didn’t rain at all.
It has been cloudy and windy all weekend but that didn’t stop my husband, my friend Danielle and myself from going on a hike to the Wichita Mountains yesterday. It so crazy in the “flat” state of Oklahoma, just about 90 minutes south of OKC is this small little mountain range, complete with a wildlife refuge for buffalo, longhorn cattle, elk and prairie dogs. Yes you will be driving along there may be buffalo or longhorn just chilling by the road eating a snack.
There are also tons of great hiking trails and a cute little mountain town to boot. We had a great hike to the top of Elk Mountain and then broke my diet and had a Cheeseburger in Medicine Park. The cute little mountain town.
Saturday night was spent binge watching Grey’s Anatomy and knitting on my Endearment Sweater. It’s making slow progress. I just started on the wait shaping. Lately during the week I will come home from working out and just not have the bandwidth for pattern repeats, so on nights like those, I have been working on my Mindless blanket. But I really do need to concentrate on the sweater so I can get more scrap yarn for the blanket and my other side project, the Beekeepers Quilt. But the Sweater is coming along nicely and I am getting the pattern down so its taking a lot less energy, brainpower and concentration. Something I am severely lacking at 8:30 on a weeknight.
In other knitting news, in April I will be attending the DFW Fiberfest in Texas. Its just a short 3 hour drive for me and for the first time I am taking classes. Not just any classes. Classes by non other than Clara Parks and Stephanie Pearl McPhee! I am soon excited! Stay tuned for lots of stories as well as instant posts on social media. I will be there all 3 days.
In cooking, from my Pinterest Board, tonight I am making Island Pork Tenderloin, Garlic Butter Cheesy Crescent Rolls, and for me Lemon Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts. Ok, I better get cooking so I can work on my sweater tonight.
Talk to you all soon & happy knitting.
