Of course, this doesn't mean you can't use the driving time as an excuse to pack up some beautiful new yarn for a "more portable" knitting project:
Next, be sure to take Roxy along as well, so you will have a tired and happy dog at the end of the day:
Once on the highway, try to decide between casting on for those brown socks you've been wanting, or for a Damson in your new lace yarn. Realize that the 2 new yarns would actually look really good together in a fingering weight Cedar Leaf Shawlette like the one you saw Betsy wearing at knitting night.
On the drive up the mountain, make your husband stop the car so that you can take pictures of the dogwood trees in bloom, as well as the other wildflowers growing in abundance:
Next, go ahead and put down your knitting long enough to enjoy a tromp through the woods.
Note that the cup fungus growing everywhere means there might be morels nearby:
As you continue to hunt, don't be fooled by the false morels:
When you do find some true morels, be sure to admire and photo document them before putting them in your basket:
And at the end of the hunt, get one last picture of the boy with his loot:
Upon arriving home, realize that you are now addicted to knitting your Cedar Leaf Shawlette, and your may even finish it in time for FO Friday.
Finally, stop knitting long enough to take a picture of it for the blog, and link up with the Work-In-Progress Wednesday party at Tami's Amis:
