Coming Out...

So I have a confession...I am a closet knitter. I do it a.lot. as in almost every day I pick up the needles as to find something rhythmic and calm in what has been a crazy year.

This weekend I went to a retreat with my fantastic friend heather to help her with her yarn, enjoy my time and knit. We took a class at the retreat with the amazing anne hanson where she taught us some cool things such as knitted on borders and fantastic lace fun. Heather currently has my little project that I completed, but I will show you all soon.

During our trip I took a little photo safari in the town of los ojos. Here are a few of my faves:
Freshly Baked Cookies

This one (and the next two as well) were SOOC only resized for web.

On Sunday before we left Heather, Laurie and I went to walk a Labyrinth. I caught this capture of Heather meditating without her noticing:
Solitude

On the way back I saw these two scenes.

Path to the Foot of God - again...this path traveled to the foot of this mesa and really to me it looked where God has come from the heavens and touched the earth.
PathtoFootOfGod

Church (look at the chair) I have to tell you this is my type as church because looking at a scene like this I cannot imagine one not feeling closer to a higher power. After the Labyrinth I was feeling way close to God and my inner self as well and to see both of these scenes still take my breath away.

Thank you for letting me share and "come clean" about my knitting. Perhaps I will share more of it soon.
