This is merino/silk 80/20 blend hand dyed by Funky C. I'm done with this now (see the yarn here- Rav Link), but enjoyed spinning it all week while listening to lots of different music. I can listen to quite a few CD's in the 8-10 hours that it takes me to spin a skein of fingering weight yarn and since we got new speakers and a subwoofer (Bose) I've really been cranking the music. I'm so lucky my neighbors don't complain, they have every right to.
Last week (actually it might already have been the week before) J and I took a short camping trip up the Little St. Joe River. It was completely gorgeous and of course I wish I had taken more pictures. However I really struggle with taking photos in the full, bright sunlight and scenery photos instead of macros. I need to get out of my comfort zone a little bit more often photo wise.
Most of the scenery was like this- steep mountains and deep ravines with rushing rivers at the bases. We did a lot of driving around and exploring different areas before settling on a campsite.
We finally settled into a place at along the Little St. Joe River- it was really just a pull out off of the road, but people have definitely camped here before as evidenced by the rock fire rings and the amount of trash we found around the site. It really bugs me that people aren't more respectful when they're in the wild. Oh well.
I found a great huckleberry picking spot- unfortunately they weren't quite in season so I couldn't go all out, but I did find plenty for snacking on while there. Huckleberries are amazingly delicious and also apparently the state fruit of Idaho.
You can see the whole set here (flickr). We had a really good time and are planning another camping trip for the next long weekend we both have off.
