I had recently purchased some Wildfoote, "Blue Blood Red" and decided that this would be a lovely color to make Waving Lace out of. So, I resurrected my pattern, whipped out a needle and casted on to do the scalloped edge. Due to one of the storms, the yarn got wet and I couldn't knit with it, plus I had stretched out the yarn a bit and didn't want my scallops to be ugly so I took out one sock and continued with the other.
I love the weather. I like to look at it, I like to take picture of it, I like to watch it on TV. I was particularly concerned about it during this trip because my neighbor at the campsite, dry and comfy in her motor home, told me, "Bad storm coming through, they're predicting up to 70 mph winds". That was about an hour before these were taken! OMG! That's nearly hurricane force. Luckily, that didn't happen by us. (Phew!) Remember, we were in a tent. BATTEN DOWN THE HATCHES! When it passed over us, pouring hard but minimal went, we went off to Ticonderoga. We needed to go to Rite Aid for some itchy medicine for DD and some more drugs for pneumonia suffering DH. DS and I were just fine, although he got a little carsick. The elevation sets him off so I picked up some more Dramamine. Figuring I would need it for the ride to the top of the Mountain-Who-Should-Not-Be-Mentioned.
This might be the best picture I took while up there. The water at the top left is Lake Champlain and that's the Green Mountains of Vermont across the Lake. Notice it's clouding up. It was only 48 degrees up there and still my palms were sweating. I was sitting on the rocks most of the time.
The weather station is there at the top.
Again, looking towards the Northwest. You can see the walkway that you can climb up along the edge. More of the flatlands, the very very top of the screen would be Canada. I'm told that on a very clear day you can see Montreal.
That's all I have today. Stay tuned to see my souvenirs...
I hope you liked my pictures! More yarn coming up for the yarn fans and more sky coming up for the sky fans!
