Island Girls

Just returned from our 3rd annual Roche Harbor knitting retreat on San Juan Island.  Zoe and Jo came along for the ride and behaved themselves quite nicely:

The weekend was filled with wildlife (these deer were crazy!!) ~


A visit with old friends on the farm:

And meeting some new:
Wardrobe additions from Peru:
Beautiful views from the front porch, morning and night:

Captured moments:

Autumn splendor:


Tons of laughter and sharing with this amazing group of women:
And another adventure shared with my best bud and partner in crime:
There are some good stories that go with the deer, the beads and that dazzling dress but I'll save those for another day.  And oh, yeah ~ I did manage to get some knitting done!  madeline, madeline, madeline....mmm mmm mmm ~just can't get enough of ya:


I cannot wait for next year!  What a fantastic weekend!   ~ Melissa

Knitted Bliss

Now, this is what makes me really, really happy!  Juliet Scarf from Loisa Harding's Knitting Little Luxuries (this pattern is also available free on Ravelry!)....made with Kimono Angora Pure in Tan (which is really the palest shade of pink I've ever seen).  The button on the knitted flower pin is vintage glass from my collection.

This was a good project to work on after this week's Fair Isle Fiasco....Failure....Success.  ~ Melissa
