The skies are hazy, the sunlight angles differently against the earth... summer is more than half over and I can detect hints of the autumn to come. Knitting season! Sadly it's not yet knitting season and I've got a few busy weeks ahead of me so I don't have a lot of time to knit. That didn't stop me this weekend when we went camping. I snuck in some sock knitting around the fire.

Around this time of year we like to organize a giant camping trip with friends and their children. I didn't do much camping as a child, but I love hanging out around a camp fire, sleeping in a tent and cooking bacon on a camp-stove. There's not a whole lot of "roughing it" in the way I camp. It would not be nearly as much fun without knitting. Or hand-knits:

Those are the socks my mom knit for me out of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock. She didn't want me feeling left out at Liam's birthday so she snuck in a little birthday present for me. Thanks mom! Camping also gave me the excuse to wear my Shakespeare Cardigan. It was so comfortable I nearly wore it the whole time!
