I'll be away for the next three days. I knitted one scarf in advance and I even figured out how to set my blog so it will automatically post that scarf tomorrow! The rest of the scarves will be knitted on the drive to and from Oroville. Enjoy the long weekend everyone!

No, I didn't get a sunburn...I've been clapping and patsching for 3 days now in my first Masters class and I have actually broken blood vessels in my legs! I guess I'm just a little too excited about what we are doing! It's just so fun that I can't help but patsch loudly!

This scarf is made for my wonderful husband who was kind enough to go out and get me a whopping 50 pounds of raspberries while I was away on Craft Weekend. My new evening snack is frozen raspberries and dark chocolate - delicious!

This tonal blue scarf reminds me of the bowl of blueberries on our table. I watched the blueberries as I chowed down on some homemade mercimek corba (lentil soup in Turkish). After visiting with my friend Izabela today I was feeling a bit nostalgic and wishing I could go back to Turkey and thought I could do the next best thing...make lentil soup!

Seven months of scarves done! I cannot believe it (yes, I realize I say this every time I reach a monthly milestone). This one is done in shades of green, blue and tan. It reminds me of the colours Max and I saw in the gardens on our evening stroll.

This scarf was made on a very full day. We had a bunch of friends over for brunch and then ended up going for a picnic dinner right before the fireworks at English Bay. The ocean-like colours remind me of the ocean that lay before us as we watched the Celebration of Light put on by Spain - amazing.

This green scarf (like the American dollar) was knitted on the drive across the border with my mom and aunt for some much needed retail therapy at Ross. We had a great time shopping without husbands...there was no pressure to leave!

These were the only colours left in my knitting bag when I went to knit today: pink, dark green, light green, and brown. It was obvious that this scarf represented the flesh, rind, and seeds of a watermelon...delicious. It reminds me of the watermelon that we got at the end of our meal when we went to Aoki Sushi with Mo, To, Jessica and Brie!

This gray with brightly coloured specks scarf was knitted after attending the fireworks with our friends Morgan, Tommy, Jessica, and Brie. Not only did we get to enjoy the spectacular fireworks on display, we also had a man stand directly in front of us and do his `come hither` dance! Oh the sights you can see in Vancouver!

I finally did it! I managed to knit and purl a pattern into a scarf for once. This one was knitted in the car over Craft Weekend which allowed me the time to focus on my knit 2 purl 2 (k2p2). When Max saw this one he said, `I want one like that...just not pink`.

This pink, red and white scarf was knitted in the first 2 hours of our drive to Oroville. We were merrily driving along and grooving to some upbeat salsa music when we felt something under the car. All of a sudden we were bumping up and down and pulling over to the side of the road to see what was wrong. A flat! Diana called BCAA and I took photographs of it and us looking pathetic! Then it was back into the car to wait for BCAA. Turn up the salsa music and knit, knit, knit! It was a flat tire fiesta!

Just want to let you know that I will be at the cabin for a few days and my yarn and needles are coming with me, yet again! I'll update when I get back. In the meantime, all of the pictures for the month of June are up now...take a peek!
This furry black and white scarf was knitted with the rest of the yarn left over from my Fuzzy Newsprint scarf. It is so bizaare - the scarf ends up having a thick section, then a thin section, thick again, thin again. What in the world was this yarn originally intended for?

This scarf was knitted with a caramel colour, brown and dark brown. The whole time I was knitting it I was reminded of the teddy grahams my brother and I used to eat as kids. I remember how I would delicately bite of the head or an arm - eating the teddy bit by bit.

After sitting around a bonfire at Melissa and Matt's place it was next to impossible not to think about eating smores - especially when Melissa brought out marshmallows for roasting on the fire! Thanks for a great night Melissa and Matt!
