WiP Wednesday: Vacation Knitting

Hi! There actually has been some knitting going on. My Musique socks got some good air time at the Jammers Lucy-Desi’s game. I turned the heel on a trip to the Quilt Farm in Boston, N.Y., with my mom on Tuesday and finished the decreases last night.

I split for the sleeves on my Mondo Pulli last Wednesday, just before we left for the Lake. I’ve knit about another inch since then, and I’m finished with the third ball of yarn.

Some of the other “same old” stuff is happening because I’m at the Lake. I managed to take a 90-minute walk in the rain yesterday and here’s the glass I came up with

It actually didn’t rain all that hard and the “storm” cleared out pretty quickly. And yet? Another less-than-stunner sunset. A few moments after this photo was taken, the sun hit cloud cover well before hitting the water. Meh.

Since the Lake was fairly high yesterday afternoon and into this morning, it was a banner day for beach glass. I walked to the State Park again (guessing that’s about a 6-mile round trip, it took me over two hours) and had a pocket completely full of glass when I got home. Oh, and sunburn on my arms. Oops.

The best part about being up here is that I have shiny things to keep me motivated while getting my exercise. Yes, I am part magpie. There is no way in hell I could walk for 2 hours, 30 minutes in the gym.

I may be forgetting, but what have you done with all the glass you've collected during the summer?

I couldn't walk that far in the gym either. 2 hours on a treadmill or eliptical would bore me to death (and there wouldn't be any lovely glass either).
