Forestry Camp Yarn Along

Brian and Maddie gave me this book for Mother's Day when we got home from forestry camp. Its called This Book was a Tree and has lots of ideas and activities to do outside. One of the first projects is to make a junk journal out of an old clothbound book. The second project is making a pinhole camera. I suspect this book will keep both Maddie and me very busy!

While we wee at forestry camp I started working on some socks for myself using Stroll Handpainted fingering yarn from Knitpicks in the make believe colorway. I am using my favorite pattern from Ann Budd's book Getting Started Knitting Socks. It was fun to work on it at camp. A couple of the parents came to see what I was doing and so did some of the kids! One of the girls even told me she had received a set of dpns for Christmas but hadn't been brave enough to try them yet.

What are you knitting and reading?

  1. Beautiful socks! And forestry camp? That sounds amazing. I'm intrigued by your book!

  2. Forestry camp is through 4H and is awesome! You can see my post right before this one to see all the things we did.
