Heading Home

AKQGuy's picture

We decided to head home today after getting snowed on North of the Grand Canyon with a sick Great Dane. Its hard sharing a sleeping bag with a shivering dane and getting any sleep. Morning saw the other boys not eating and as we entered Zion my old girl looked over my shoulder and ralphed on me. With that and the weather forecast we found in Zion of continued rain and snow at altitude, we hit I15 and started home.

Here's the sock I pulled back out after Zion. Yesterday I turned the heel as we hit Arizone but I wasn't happy with it so I tore it out this morning and re did it.

Hope you all had a great weekend! Truly, Moab was wonderful, the canyon spectacular and zion, well lets just say I will return to get a proper look but what I saw was breathtaking.

Peaceout knitter dudes,
Q

The last of the sick dogs

The last of the sick dogs finally ate tonight! Not only did he have a bit of dinner but actually wanted to have a before bed snack! Woo Hoo! Literally, I'm happy because he was going to a vet tomorrow if he didn't start eating. Would have already been had he not been drinking and holding down that down.

Glad the kids are all

Glad the kids are all recovered. Wonder what caused it? Poor babies. Still, better to cut the trip short than have to deal with an unknown vet in a crisis situation. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Sorry to hear you had to come back early, but the trip was amazing I'm sure! I've said it before but that area is absolutely amazing. I too love Moab and can't wait to head back over there!! So amazing. Happy knitting to you!

Hi Q, My son and I want to

Hi Q,
My son and I want to do the Moab/Zion trip someday...soon, I hope. You just answered a question for us in that this time of year there can be sketchy at best with regard to the weather. We think we'll go in early June before it becomes a blast furnace. Where did you stay?

Shame your sock had to be

Shame your sock had to be pulled back, it looks good. I'm sure the remake will be even better.

Pulling back is a small

Pulling back is a small thing. I made the decision early enough that it wasn't painful. This yarn though is knitting up beautiful for being an unnatural abomination of a fiber (can we say yarn snob?) Doesn't bounce to hide the short row wrapping of the heal so I wanted to make things a little tighter. I'm kinda impressed I was able to pull back and replace my toothpicks... er... needles without trouble while on the road. Anyway, thanks and I'll post better pics when I have them.

Sorry to hear that your trip

Sorry to hear that your trip was cut short. Here's hoping all the kids recover and are soon their perky selves. As I said in the earlier post...nice sock, even if it is upside down. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Leave my toe up socks alone

Leave my toe up socks alone Joe. You'll hurt their feelings.

Any hurt feelings would

Any hurt feelings would entirely be unintentional on my part. I try not to be that kind of guy. I apologize. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
