A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

July 26, 2011


Camp was a little odd this year. A few key players are having health issues and that changed the feel of the camp. I knitted like a maniac on my Knit, Swirl jacket but didn't finish the knitting until last night after I got back to Seattle.

One camp tradition of sorts is to wear the sweaters and shawls around the classroom. Items knit and worn by Meg Swansen and Elizabeth Zimmermann. Meg was discussing the pockets on a Bavarian jacket knit by Elizabeth when a camper mentioned that while she had been wearing it she discovered an old fortune cookie fortune in one of the pockets. Intrigued Meg dug into the pockets and found this lost treasure.

It had been tucked into the pocket by Elizabeth who knows how long ago. We were all very touched and charmed by this discovery and Meg sweetly tucked the message back into the pocket, presumably to be rediscovered some time in the future.

That was one of my favorite moments at camp this year. It was good to see you again! I can't wait to see your Swirl!
