R & R

This past weekend my husband and I had a little getaway on the North Shore (Lake Superior) and stayed at our favorite resort. The weather was perfect so we ventured out and did some snowshoeing and hiking on the Superior Hiking Trail. I feel like I'm in a different part of the world when I go there. It's simply breathtaking!
We also managed to sleep in, watch movies (uninterrupted), grill steaks, drink wine, surf the web and I was able to get a little knitting done. Simply divine!

Here is my progress on the skirt. I think this will be one of those projects I'll just have to pick up when I have some time, knit a row, then set down. It's really going to take a long time...

It felt like spring was in the air today. Lots of sloppy puddles everywhere and dirty snowbanks. Not so pretty. I can't wait to see spring flowers.
I've been working on a few fun "spring" patterns by Marie Mayhew- Easter eggs and chicks. I still need to felt and embellish them but here is a sneak peak:

That skirt is hot! Love it!

Your little get away sounds great. EZ and I love to go up the u.p. at least once during the summer. I'll have to book mark your link. (where are you in Michigan? I live in the Tri-City area)

Your spring felts look great too!`

Hi Knitterella,
Hopefully my DH thinks I look like a "hot mama" wearing it ;)
We are actually in Minnesota, just minutes north of the Twin Cities.
The resort we stayed at is in Two Harbors, MN. Love that whole stretch of Hwy 61. I've been to the UP but the furthest is Indianhead, skiing.
