« Finished: Muppety Sand Hat | Main | Two »

Sammamish blog-down

I've been back from Washington for almost a week now, but it's never too late to share a few pics. All told I got to see my two lovely sisters, the wee nephewling, my parents, and my cousins Jessica and Liz. So there was much fun and maybe a little less knitting than expected. The knitterly upside is that the cool, drizzly weather meant that we could break out the handknits. See if you can spot them all!

An excellent mushroom; a familial handknit extravaganza.

Knits featured in this post: knucks (still waiting on a FO report), the as yet unblogged twiggy bobble hat (hmmm...Spun Mag seems to have let their domain expire. I'll leave the link though, in case it comes back. Who can fathom the mysteries of the internets?), the garter stripe scarf, the mossy baby sweater, and Kricket's Luna Park Socks. Oh fine, you can't see the socks in any of the pictures...but I swear Krick was wearing them. And while we're at it, I got to break in my plain old socks as well.

For those curious among you, the couslings and I did squeeze in a trip to Cultured Purls (right after the trip to the salmon hatchery) in Issaqua. Souvenir yarn and needles were dutifully purchased.


You look JUST like your dad!

i was wearing them in that last picture. i wore them three days in a row, in fact.

The trip sounds lovely! And where did you get your sweater?! I'd love to make something like that... hmmm....

Such family fun here! Seriously, the fact that you finished a pair of knucks seemn like more than enough knitting for such a fabulous family-fin-filled trip.

Cute cute cute cute cute! Elliott is adorable... and who can resist a piano playing baby? Looks like you had a fabulous time!

Awesome pics....weirdly I am most strongly attracted to the mushroom!

a family that wears handknits together, stays together. seems like a lovely trip.

You guys are all so cute! It's good to see that you're taking your role as Official Supplier of the Handknits seriously.

the green sweater and the striped hat that Elliot has on in the pick are totally adorable!

That last photo of all of you looks straight out of a Rowan catalog. On second thought... maybe more Rebecca. You look more cheerful than most Rowan models.

Awwwwww, I love your pictures. I especially love the one with all of you and the umbrealls. So bright, cheery, and fiber-y on a grey day! I like your style.

Great to see pics of Liz and Jess. We all miss them here at CK in GR, but are glad to see so much familial fun happening.

The knits are all so fantastic! I was wondering if you knitted Elliot's adorable striped hat? If so, is there a pattern I can find somewhere for that? I would love to make one for my baby girl. Thanks!!

Elliot is quite the cutie! For you and anyone else who has ever lost a pattern or something neat to a broken link... Copy link and then go to archive.org then paste link into the wayback machine. You will (normally but not for all pages)get a list of archived pages! Click away and print the pattern this time! Yay for archive!
