Crochet Wool

Missing winter already? And it is the middle of summer…
It shows I have been living for too long here in Florida and I don’t know what season we are in. I wish I had more winter and more mountains!

The photos were taken at the end of April 2009 in Snowbird Utah, skiing at 20C was weird but fun, ice in the morning, a wet melt in the afternoon, but well worth the trip, the scenery is incredible.

Diamonds!

From this little corner of the world, surrounded by swamp and the ocean, one needs to get on a plane for a change of scenery. A 5 hour flight from Fort Lauderdale took us to Salt Lake City and another 5 hours drive away we were in the Grand Tetons and on our way to Yellowstone. Add those hours together and one gets a lot of crochet or knitting time!

Yes I was able to take the crochet hooks with me, even the aluminum kind, no questions asked by the airport security personnel. There are of course plastic versions if you have any worries…

Crocheting helped me quit smoking, I wish my husband would like to give it a try..it also helps you keep your cool on a plane, especially when you got your cheap tickets in the last row next to the lavatory, where everyone seems to form a huge line after drinking about 50ml of water.

You can also choose to work on a smaller project that you can even finish by the time the plane lands and you can have a useful item to wear during your stay.

My crochet beanie has seriously been used as a sun hat during the day, with the ear-flaps lifted and it also holds some warmth during colder nights in a tent.
