Camping

This is a picture of Knife lake from the shore at our campsite this weekend. My annual girls camping trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness was last weekend which is always fun. The water there is just clear as day and a pretty greeny/blue color. I took some time to knit on my socks in the hammock.

We paddled on "glass" as my dad calls it. I did go fishing too and caught some smallmouth bass.
Saw many, many loons. This was my best picture, my sister probably has a better one since she has a nicer camera.
This was my favorite meal up there, Minestrone soup with bread sticks and Stawberry-Kiwi Crystal Light. Yum!
I took a moment to enjoy the evening and knit on the socks again.

Here's my progress. I decided to start knitting the other one before finishing the first since I wanted to be sure I had enough yarn. The thought being I could maybe use a different yarn on the toes if need be. I think it will be fine but you never know. So just toes left on sock number one. I brought 2 projects up but only managed to cast on for the other one not knit at all. It is busy when you're up there and tiring so I found myself having to find time to knit if I really wanted to do it.


I am still pretty exhausted, this trip is not for the faint hearted. The first leg is a 2 hour paddle and then another paddle about an hour long. Not much portaging but the longest portage was right at the end on the way in. I have to say the 6 girls who went with me are the strongest and toughest girls I know. I'm so glad they are my family and friends. We are all a good team and take care of each other when we are up there and when we are home too. I love you guys!
