Busy Camping

Love Camping!

We went to Portola State Park last month. The route has a breathtaking viewpoints. You can see the California's Wilderness in this campground. I'm not talking about wild animals. There are raccoons, of course, but not bears or other beasts. The park is so dense, that I was not able to see the sunrise. 

We read the yelp reviews about the park and was very anxious about the mosquito bites. Either they were over-rated or we were extremely fortunate for not having been preyed upon. There were some insects, but I don't agree to all those ramblings, we are invading their nest and to whine about it is, I would say, bad!

One great specialty about this park is, it is very close to the city. We can reach the park in say an hour. We had wonderful time there. We went with another family. We built the tents, cooked our meals midst the bush, listened to a little bit of music. We relaxed. That's the point of camping or any recreational activity.

We would have loved to do a bit of hiking. Time didn't permit though. 

To sum up, it was an awesome  camping experience with good company.

Mystery Knit Along - July



Hi there!
I've recently started taking craftsy classes. I'm hooked. It's a wonderful platform to learn new skills.
I recently signed up for July month's mystery knit along. During the sign up, it mentioned about the pattern being a one size fit all. So I kind of figured it could either be a cowl or a scarf. So, when the yarn came home, I was thrilled, it was a fingering weight yarn. So I thought, I would be doing something lacy.

But it turned out to be a cable pattern cowl. I can't say, I was very excited. But the instructions were quite helpful and after a while, I was definitely loving the way it was shaping up. I'm almost through with the cable section, I'm still working on it. I'll upload it to my ravelry page, in addition to craftsy after finishing it.

Oh, forgot to mention the name . It's Swirling Tendrils by Sarah Wilson(thesexyknitter from youtube). This is her youtube channel, http://www.youtube.com/user/TheSexyKnitter

She has some interesting patterns in her website as well.

I'm currently running along with so many projects, I figured, it would be best put off getting new patterns. But that didn't stop me from signing up for another craftsy course, the fair isle knitting vest.

Here's the link to craftsy page for the course:

Finally.....

So after procrastinating for months, I finally convinced myself to blog. And what am I going to blog about? Well, that's something not concrete. I will write my thoughts, something that moved/inspired/touched me.
And any events that I dwell upon(in my mind, of course!)

So, see you around....
