Arizona and Knitting

Just got home from two wonderful, but very busy weeks in Arizona. The pass over the Siskiyou Mountains in southern Oregon-northern California looked like this:

We followed the snowplows up to the top and down the other side, and they were spreading red sand on the road. Just imagine what our car looked like after that!!!!

While in Arizona, we purchased a lot and will be having a house built in a 55+ community. It will be at least 4 months before they are finished, and hopefully we can sell our present home by then. We're just getting tired of the rainy, gray days here in Washington state and look forward to being in the warm climate year around. Of course, this all means I'll be terribly busy prepping this house for sale and my knitting projects will probably suffer.

I did finish this hat for my husband - Lost Banner Hat by Susan B. Anderson
I knit this with Malabrigo Worsted in a beautiful lime/navy color, which made hubby happy, as these are the colors of the Seattle Seahawks and the Sounders teams.


  1. So how will Keith be able to wear this hat in AZ??? huh? How will we keep Crafts day going? How will you be able to miss Forza (Volcano) days? How will you knit with luscious wools? You will miss us! As we will miss you... ;{

    1. I will miss all of the above-mentioned things and people very much, but what's a girl to do? Warm weather is sure attractive. I'm sure I will keep on knitting, but it will mostly be for gifting to those who live up "north"!
