photo shoot in the woods

I have been knitting a lot lately.

Sometimes I am too tired or unable to get up to the sewing room and so I surround myself with my yarn and stitch away.
I think currently I have at least 7 projects on the needles and at least 8 finished objects I have not shown.

One of the projects I am excited about is a sweater for myself although I feel so guilty working on it because I know I should be working on shop stock. I feel less guilty working on something for the kids. I've got a poncho in the works for S and I've picked out a pattern for a sweater for Little M.

We went to the woods recently and Mick photographed me in some of my knitwear. I pretty much disliked every photograph except for this one which showcases the head kerchief. It is one of my designs I really love. I have several available and not all are listed on Etsy so shoot me an email if you are interested in owning one for yourself. You can even wear it around your neck. It looks cute like that too.

Oh, and yes it was like 90 degrees when this photo was shot.

What you don't get to see:

Little M peeing on a tree.
Scarlet sitting happily in her stroller in the middle of the woods content as can be until she got hungry of course.

i love this kerchief thing, and it has inspired me to try to make my own, except i have no idea what i'm doing. so far i can only knit the regular boring knit stitch--i have no idea how to follow a pattern or instructions--they confuse me! so am i trying something at which i will fail miserably? or is this fairly easy?
p.s. your comment about your little boy peeing on the tree during this photo shoot is priceless.

You look adorable Nancy! That head scarf is so chic! Yes I too know all about kids peeing in the woods. My 2 year old is obsessed with peeing on trees!
