This week’s things are all about Michigan!
So much good beer. I feel like I am in the Microbrewery Capital of the World. (Okay, maybe not, but #5 is not a bad spot to vacation in!) We are making the rounds and will catch up with all we missed on Saturday at the Empire Hops Festival!
P.S. We have almost tried all the beers on this list…really, so much good!
Okay, all this beer is best accompanied by good food, and we are working on that as well! But, this “smokehouse sampler” was amazing!
I love when a “fix” works – and adding a repeat to Nekia was just the thing. It is the perfect length now! (AND, Lake Michigan…I mean really!)
Those are my things this week! Want to see what others are sharing this week? Head to Carole’s to check them out!
As you can see not much knitting has been happening on vacation. However, there has been amazing scenery, awesome meals, and LOTS of family time happening. Which makes me miss knitting not at all!
On the reading front, I am still reading 4 3 2 1, but I only have about 300 pages to go! I seriously love this book! Hopefully, I will be done sooner than later as I just got the notification from the library that John le Carre’s new novel is available!
What are you knitting this week?

I am not sure I am liking the grey linen for this quarter. It is a little darker than I thought it would be, but I am forging ahead with it.
However, in September, I learned some new-to-me techniques of applique. Wool felt is truly a thing of beauty. I had no idea at all, but wow – I really loved working with it!
I also loved using darker color threads as my world changed dramatically this month. The trees are changing, plants are dying, and things are settling in for a new season.
One thing is certain, each day’s stitching was a high point of my day. And, learning new things is always good!
Is Pure Michigan! The view in my “front yard” is wonderful. Airbnb FTW!
We had an awesome weekend catching up with the kids.
Up next, Lake Michigan…ahhhh.
Have an amazing Monday!
P.S. Kathy shared this amazing link on Saturday, jewelry for the bibliophile!
The final touches of packing are happening today. That’s right, we are heading out to visit my kids.
Woollelujah! has been packed and is ready to go. It contains a little bit of this and that – some pay attention knitting and some mindless knitting. My goal, one finished object before the trip is over and I think that is entirely doable!
And, there were some really excellent links this week!
Op Art Shawl is knit with an interesting yarn (and it is a free download!)
Baskerville Dawn to Dusk II is a collection of patterns knit up from another interesting yarn. I especially like Bristol Ivy’s Bovey
Issue 3 of Laine Magazine has some incredible knits in it. I might be planning a stop here to get a copy!
Ghostwood Mittens gives a lovely idea. Carry a strand of mohair/silk with your yarn to create luxury mittens (and super warm!)
Kindred Knits… so much cute here! Especially the cardigans!
Wearable Cardigan – entirely wearable but with shorter sleeves.
See you back here on Monday! And have a great weekend everyone!
