A Trip, A Wedding and an FO

Time to catch up on the happenings at Casa del Revknits. This is a post in three parts: The trip, the wedding, and an FO.


The Trip

In late August I had the fortune to travel to the hills of Western North Carolina to teach at an event there – and it was very green! Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on one’s point of view) for my fiber plans, the local yarn store was closed for the week as the owners were on vacation. Good thing I brought projects to work on!

I was able to visit my friends Aimee and Will that I met through social about 7-8 years ago as the economy was collapsing and we started using this new platform called Twitter! They are renovated a house outside Asheville and I was their first guest – we ate takeout on the porch which has a killer view:

Toward the end of the event, Hurricane Hermine was threatening and I took an early flight out of Charlotte to make it back in time for a family wedding.


The Wedding

Allison and Eben are delightful couple, and I happen to be related to the bride. They had a smallish wedding in the backyard of a restaurant – and it was charming, full of laughter and tears. I got to preside over the ceremony, and it was such an honor!

The FO

All along the way on these trips and events, I had my knitting with me. The Fraxinus Cowl by Ysolda Teague is party of her @2016 Ysolda club, and it’s the first one that I just knit the way that she had designed. I loved the Uncommon Thread Posh Fingering yarn in a color way that shifts between green and gray depending on the light,

and the pattern is fun too! All done and ready for gifting at Christmas.
