Camping and Knitting and Camping Some More


I have been furiously knitting all summer for Great Basin National Park as I need to donate a piece to them by September. Most of my knitting has been while camping because this was the summer of camping for us.


We were able to knock one place off our bucket list and camped for 4 days on the White Rim Trail in Canyonlands National Park.


Not only did we manage to get out as we usually do, but I started a new program at the Museum in collaboration with the National Forests. I called it “UMFA in the Wild” and I take art workshops around to different campsites in the National Forests to teach about nature and art. It’s been very fun and successful but also meant lots more camping for me and my family!

I do have lots of finished pieces to post here but I am waiting to get them modeled because they really do need to be worn to see them in the best light.

  2. Worked on a multiple of two plus four, the pineapple is made by doing a yarn over, inserting the crochet hook in a single stitch, and pulling up a loop four times, making a yarn over. Draw the crochet yarn through eight loops, then make another yarn over and pull the yarn through the last two loops. https://mycrochetpattern.com/beginners/back-post-sc/
