Double blogging

I’m still plugging away at my Monkey socks, and they’re going well, but the progress isn’t anything special to photograph.

Yesterday I didn’t post because I was pretty worn out!  The kids and I went up to Petaluma to take a nice hike (or bike ride, for the Wee Boy) with our friend.  It was really, really lovely!  We stayed on the paved trail at the Helen Putnam Regional Park: http://parks.sonomacounty.ca.gov/Get_Outdoors/Parks/Helen_Putnam_Regional_Park.aspx

It’s really pretty, and the hiking can get your heart working but not so much that you’ll hurt yourself.  And the views of the rolling hills are beautiful.  I’m looking forward to trying out some of the dirt trails as well.

The littlest trooper.

The fish pond was definitely the highlight of the outing!

In other news, I’ve written a blog post for my knitting group in which I recap my friend’s and my excursion to Stitches West.  You’ve read my side, but my friend’s knitterati encounter is pretty special, I’d say!
