Quirky: Yellowstone Adventure

Our annual fall trip to Yellowstone has begun! Each year we get to make two trips to a cabin in Island Park, ID. It is 20 minutes from the west gate of the park. The first year I went after opening Snappy Tots I shared pictures on my facebook page. People seemed to enjoy seeing our adventure so I post a few each day. If you see one of the pictures on my facebook page please post on it before it closes (the giveaways each stay open at least 24 hours). A few patterns will be given away per picture. In the past, I have let facebook peeps know when I would be at different webcams in the park. These are fun to look at, especially if you have never been to Yellowstone. Yesterday, on our way up, we stopped at Bearworld in Rexburg, ID. Several years ago, my two oldest were able to feed the baby bears there and loved it. Hayden (age 7) wasn’t sure he wanted to do this. After much convincing, he had a blast. He fed 6 bears! Capture   I always have to crochet in the car. If not, I get bored just sitting there. My first car project was to finish up a wider version of my Heartstrings Scarf. I used Lion Brand Amazing Yarn. It is an interesting yarn…”amazing” actually…because different colors are twisted together to create a beautiful combination.

Today we are making our favorite trek of the trip, to the North East gate of the park and two little remote towns, Silvergate and Cooke City. They are quaint little towns. I will share pictures and more information on my next post. My project in the car today is a hat for Hayden to match his new hoodie and a few wash cloths for a special yarn bombing project…more info and pictures to come. I am also finishing up the Sweetheart Ripple Afghan from the wedding raffle. The winner chose royal blue and black. It takes more concentration then I get in the car so it is my “in the cabin crochet project”. I hope you will enjoy riding along with us as we search for moose (which we rarely see in the park), bears and as many buffalo as possible (LOVE them!). So…make sure you have a crochet project packed and …
