This mostly cotton yarn came from The Modern Ewe and is working up quickly. I like it but doubt I'll use it again; so many other choices are more favorable in my opinion.

The higher elevations were supposed to get some snow, enough to frost the peaks. However, we were all surprised when snow fell throughout the cities. Denver airport had serious delays, many people were happy about the unpredicted event, and luckily for us, our flight was on the 22nd, not on the 21st.
One of our favorite things to do is enjoy lunch outside, without 115 degrees, without 99% humidity, and without an assortment of flying and creeping bugs. In Colorado, we could enjoy that every day of our visit.
Here we are at the entrance to Estes Park, and then on to enjoy some outdoor meals.
We have been having way too much fun for just one family! We started the month with a short visit to play with our grandson and his parents. Note the knitting bag in the background; I'm knitting everyone socks for Christmas and they are the perfect travel knit.

I was gone just a few minutes to check emails and returned to my sock to find the skein in shambles. Puppy is quick!! The sock was left untouched, fortunately, because I have never been able to pick up dropped yarn overs............ It took me an hour to salvage the TOFUtsies skein and roll it into usable balls! The socks will be gorgeous though so I'm happy!
