Knitting!

I meant to update with pictures a while ago but I guess life (and Fable II and Anne Bishop) go in the way. Last weekend the BF and I went to Flagstaff, AZ for a mini vacation. It was really nice. We saw a meteor crater

We went to an arboretum and saw the San Francisco Peaks.


On the drive home we went through Sedona and saw plent of Red Rock. We plan on going back to see the Red Rock Park.





It was about a 2.5- 3 hour drive to Flagstaff. The meteor crater was another 45 minutes from Flagstaff so that was quite a drive! I did get a lot of knitting done. I finished the sleeves/back of the Whisper Cardigan I started with the yarn I got from the Sara at the Knottygnome Knits.



I also started Pomatomus, which I've been wanting to knit for a while. I wanted an excuse to use the Koliage square needles that I bought. So far I like them a lot. It make sense that the square needles are easier to hold on to since they sit in the bend of your ring/middle fingers (at least that's where mine sit).

The yarn is ShiBui. It was a birthday gift from a dear friend. =) The color is a bit off in both of the knitting photos. For some reason my camera has a hard time capturing color. The socks are a bit more plummy and less burgundy. ShiBui is a wonderful yarn. it's smooshy and has an amazing twist. I will definitely be using it again.

Flag is gorgeous- you really need to visit there in the Winter when it is snowing! It's beautiful! Another place you should consider visiting is Prescott. My family used to visit there every summer and it really is a sweet little town. Stunning photos!

Beautiful scenery! And there's nothing like car knitting to get things like sleeves done...
