Traveling Knitting

Last fall I knit a hat for my mountaineering cousin, who was planning a trip to climb a mountain in Mexico. Apparently this gave the hat a taste for adventure, because it was recently spotted on Aconcagua in Argentina, the highest mountain in the Americas!

The other guy in the picture, the one not wearing an awesome knitted hat, is my uncle (although not my cousin's dad... another one. I have a ton of uncles.) I'm glad I have such an outdoorsy family.

And if that isn't enough to swell my pride, the bunny I knit for my sister's birthday, now named Rupert, has taken to the trails in California. Most recently he visited Yosemite National Park.

Rupert apparently loves to hide all over my sister's apartment, waiting to pop out at the moment she least expects it. He even has a Facebook page to track his travels!

Great hat! And bunny! I attempted to knit a toy mouse for my cat, but I call it The Monster. It's hideous.

Hope all is going well with the house hunting. I am sure you are enjoying the big city life in the meantime.

I got to go to Wal-Mart today. aren't you jealous!?

I have a ton of Uncles, too, although none of them are outdoorsy (unless you count the pool and the bbq, which I never do!)

How fun! It's awesome to see your handknit gifts in use! And such prominent places!
