Return from the Woods

We're back from a great night away with friends. We stayed at the Young Life TimberWolf Lake Camp near Lake City, MI. What a beautiful place - set in Northern Michigan's beautiful forests. We had a bit more snow than the photo shows! The Lumberjack Lodge where we stayed was perfect for an informal get together of life-long friends: big comfy sofas in front of a stone fireplace, spacious kitchen for cooking dinner, and even a hot tub!

I was able to get some knitting in while away - did an entire project start to finish in 24 hrs! I made Zoe Mellor's textured cuff bootee pattern as a baby gift. The pair I knit were made from an unmarked grey wool blend from my stash remnants. It was so much fun that I think I'll make another pair for our baby!


  1. Wow! That looks beautiful. I'm sure it was great to site around a fire and talk with old friends. I hope it refreshed both of you.

    We had an awesome time this weekend--with great company, gorgeous surroundings, stimulating conversation, yummy food...

    And my, the talent we observed! Chad's three little pigs and Matt's eagle beak will not soon be forgotten. Then there was Sarah's superb chocolate mint cake roll, Sara's precious knitted baby booties, various guitar seranades, and of course our magnificent mosaics!

    I'd say our first SWRAG was a success... though perhaps we should come up with a more appealing acronym... and maybe Sara, you could even design us a logo in your spare time :)
