I am having lots of fun here in Montana! Friday I listened to a couple bands at Caras Park , and then watched fireworks later that night. Saturday I went to  the Missoula Farmer's Market Then later for some coffee at Clyde Coffee Shop What weekend wouldn't be complete without  doing laundry at Sparkle Laundromat ? Sunday I hung out at the Summer Made Fair downtown Missoula Finally a trip to Montana Bison Range


Having an awesome time!!!!!

Montana here I come!

I drove from Portland to Montana yesterday. I made it in about 8 hours. The drive was awesome and Montana is beautiful. Work brought me here. 

Portland Spirit

Today I took a two hour cruise up the Willamette. I've done this before on jet boats, but this trip was more like a cruise - they served  lunch. Sort of fancy schmancy. I had a great time and it was just the right amount of time.

Cable Knit Throw

I love this color of yarn, and I love the cable knit pattern. This is one of those projects that takes a while, and fills in the gaps between other projects.  This throw was made by casting on 188 stitches, size 8 needle, medium yarn. KK, PP until desired length. Add one stitch in the middle of next row.  Slip first stitch, (cable pattern), purl last stitch.  Cable Pattern 1st row - ktb,p,ktb,*pp,kkkkkk,pp,ktb,p,ktb, start from *  2nd row - opposite of first row.  3rd row - cable 3 kkk, kkk3, k cabled 3, continue with pattern.  Repeat third row ever 6th row.  Repeat for desired length.  Decrease 1 next row, KK, PP until desired length.  Bind off.  I added a slip stitch at the beginning of every row, and a purl stitch at the end of every row to make the work lay flat and to give it a nice clean edge. If you chose not to create the throw in this manner add three stitches in the beginning ribbing row, and decrease three when starting ending ribbing
