some new knitting:

another Ishbel shawlette that I finished.

Elegantly simple lace shawl, a feather and fan version, designed by Jackie E-S. Here's a closeup:

The family hasn't taken a vacation in years and it seems that this year is the time to take one... or two. After San Diego and Vegas, we headed for a day to Yosemite. What a truly beautiful place.

Entering Yosemite, this is the kind of view you see along the winding zig-zag road.

The beautiful Bridalveil Falls as seen from a distance.

My kids beside the creek.

more to come

This is what I'm currently knitting, a lace stole (rectangular shawl) for me made with 100% cotton yarn, great for cool summer evenings out.

A picture of the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas, where my friend's wedding was held last Saturday. Glad to be home.
