i like you.

It is getting to be that time of year again.  The air is getting cooler and leaves are beginning to crisp. For me it means a mad scramble to meet my self proclaimed knitting deadlines.  I am knitting everywhere!

I've been working on fingerless mitt pairs.  I hope to average one pair a day in September.  It is nice to use up bits of yarn and pick out buttons that suit each pair.

I hope to sell them at "i like you" in Minneapolis.  This place is adorable and features Minnesota artists.  Cross your fingers for me.

North Shore.

My boyfriend and I went on a mini break early this week.  We stayed near Lutsen on the North Shore.  It was beautiful.  After a jaunt through a construction zone we found this Poplar River overlook.  If only I had packed my knitting; I could have stayed all day.

Chris and I then headed farther North to Grand Marais where we encountered the most delicious custard shop.  It turns out I am a fan of blueberries and Oreo.

Later we headed closer to the edge of Superior for rock exporation.  Chris spotted this Sphynx moth!  So neat!

It was a fun adventure and I was glad to have my pal with me.  He makes random excursions so lovely.

This weekend was a much needed break.  I headed north with two pals in tow.  My mom and step-dad have a lovely place on a lake.

We had lots of good food.  It is always fun to use fresh herbs.

 Quality pontoon time is a must,

and good pals make lake time more fun!

 I hope everyone who could take a break did!
