the Subway

I'm on vacation so internet has been...intermittent. It really feels like roughing it when you are unable to check your email. But tonight I'm somewhere that the bandwidth flows like a mighty river, so I'll share my latest while I've got the chance.
Since moving to Florida, there are only a few things I miss about Utah. The mountains, a few friends, the kickboxing gym, the Salt Lake Stitch and Bitch. But during this past week, I've had the opportunity to get my fix of quite a few of these things.
BIL, FIL, Lawyerboy and I all jumped in the car at 4am on Thursday to drive down to Zions, for a turbo expedition of the Subway. And me without my hat! Luckily I stopped by a local yarn store earlier in the week to address this issue. Purple tweedy Tahki, knit in simple 2x2 ribs on size 4 or 5s. I even got to work on it Tuesday night with my Utah grrls! I had forgotten how much fun it is to sit and talk yarn with like minded people. I miss you!
Please forgive my bare legs. I stuck with the swimsuit most of the hike, as the water was between knee and waist height for miles.

I finished the hat in the parking lot at the beginning of the hike (too carsick to knit for long while my FIL was driving) and wore it through the extremely cold water. Water so cold my shoulders are uncontrollably hunched in many of the photos. Water too cold to joke about once you are in it. But an amazing and beautiful hike. And my ears were always nice and toasty.

Shut up! We just left Utah yesterday! We were camping at the FamCamp at Hill AFB and spent some time on Antelope Island. It was so purty out there.

I'm glad you had such a great time! I hope I see you at SnB next time you're in Utah!

It was great to see you and you looked fabulous. Something about Florida must agree with you. Isn't Utah weird? Icy water in the desert.
