Back from vacation
Ashville was nice, Mount Mitchell was amazing. Highest point on the east coast at 6,684 ft. Lovely. Look, no fooling. Don't know if I've mentioned this, but I have this ambition to put together a collection of patterns themed around East Coast hiking. The how to get it published was what kept me from doing it. I guess I now have no excuse. Hiking this weekend gave me ideas for 'Mount Mitchell' a men's aran in dark green heathered yarn and 'Trail to Craig' (this pictures were taken from Mitchell, Craig and the trail between them) which would be a bohus style cardigan done in forget me not colors - bright and pale greens, light tan, soft blue and yellow. There are many other ideas and hikes - sadly, I didn't have a good camera back when we hiked those. Better get my butt in gear, age doesn't make hiking any easier.
