I'm big on camping and though I'm a tree hugging hippy pescetarian from Santa Cruz, one of the things I'm looking forward to most is shooting!
About once a year we go shooting, and though its not a skill I have ever used in a practical way, I do enjoy being able to shoot accurately. It makes the little part of me that always wonder about the zombie wars happy to know I have skills that would allow me to fight back and live.
I will also be following tradition and making a hat. Usually I cast on on the drive down but I already have Jared Flood's Turn a Square on the needles because Ben wanted the exact one I had made for Cody, and I cast it on so that I would not forget it.
I'm also bringing a sample I'm knitting for Yarns by the Sea that I started on Saturday, grandmother's giants Sweetly Worn Shawl (pictured below, I have to finish it this weekend and block Sunday night because I see her Monday night), my Pointelle sock, and my Reunion Cowl, just in case there is not enough light to do pattern by at night.
