We're on day five of our camping trip. It's rained almost every day for some point but not so much that anyone has contemplated some form of child restraint or drugging. We're here with my knitting buddy Elizabeth and her great teen Alison who is keeping my kids entertained. Between games of where's Waldo under the tarp, I've been getting in some knitting time. The yarn is summer tweed in smoulder, and the pattern is mondo cable by Bonne Marie Burns. (Sorry for no links but I'm doing this on my iPhone. ). I love this pattern; it's very clearly written, top down, and not too challenging for camp. I know the summer tweed is a bigger gauge than called for, but with 4mm needles I squished it down and I like it better a bit tighter anyway. I find summer tweed grows when wet. Even though the sky is getting cloudy we're off to the beach. Classic Canadian summer; you take what you can get.
