With the goal of visiting a place where we could see the totality of the eclipse this week, my family took our first road trip.
We went all in: 5 national parks, 2 national monuments, 5 states, 16 days and 4000 miles traveled.
We began in North Dakota at Theodore Roosevelt Park.
Since we were in the car so much, I had tons of time for knitting.
I was able to start and finish a vest, inspired by the fluffy clouds in the big sky
The other knitting project I brought along didn't get quite finished, but I made some serious headway on it.
I had the book Yokes by Kate Davies, and it was hard to choose one pattern. I love everything in the book, and I will probably knit more as the years pass.
I settled on Cockatoo Brae, which is the cover pattern. (photo from the book)
I dug through my stash and found some colors I liked.
The lichen, the fauna, the water, the woods, it was all represented in my palate.
We had a marvelous time, despite the odd 35 degree night, or swarms of flies in the outhouses.
I can't wait to finish up this sweater, and be reminded of our travels.
