Road Trip

The past couple days have been spent on a road trip. Started off pretty good, before I left I found out I made Dean’s List last semester. YA! We headed out first to see my Mom. Then it was the long drive out to the coast. I haven’t been in many years I said I had to go. Then we picked up one of my guy’s friends. He is staying with us for the week.

I though this was a lovely shot of the beach. Next shot of is a fishing boat going down the coastline.

I just love this seagull. The sea anemone is pretty cute too.


 This was a waterfall on the way back home.

 Last night I finished my red crochet sweater jacket. I was really unsure throughout the whole thing but I love how it turned out. I have crocheted only one other sweater before which didn’t turn out to my satisfaction. I am proud I got this done and in a reasonable amount of time. The pattern is from Interweave Crochet, Summer ’07 I believe.  I altered it a little, giving it the bar of stitching down the front and making a shorter collar. The yarn was given to me by my Mom two years ago. It is Tatamy Tweed by Kraemer Yarns. I like the yarn alot. Though a tiny bit splitty but the color play is wonderful. It completely suprised me when I first swatched the yarn. The yarn came from the best yarn shop ever in my experience; Jacci’s Yarn Basket in Dayton, WA.

When Mom comes to see me it makes everything better. We did what we always do which is craft shopping. We also hit the antique store and has Chinese food for lunch. She is always super sweet and buys me presents, which is great. Today I added a little bit more to my crafting stash. Some sock yarn is right on top. I couldn’t resist the pretty purple yarn. There is also a little bamboo crochet hook and a swedish weaving book. Also there is five fat quarters. I am slowly collecting a total of 35 fat quarters of 30s reproduction fabric for a Card Trick quilt. Of course I wore my new sweater all day long. It was about 52 F in June! Plus it rained again, usually we would be about 80 or 90 F by now.
