Memories from the summer of 2007

Captured for all eternity on a chip -

We went to the Cheyenne Frontier Days rodeo this year and it was a BLAST!
Some of those cowboys are so damn skillful. And not so hard to look at either :)

And here's an Indian folk dance show we saw. The costumes are stunning and the music is different from any other I've heard. There was a man playing the flute before the dance - the most beautiful, haunting music you've ever heard.

We drove into the mountains one day to a Buddhist place called Shambalaya. This is the Stupa which we hiked a couple of miles uphill to see.

Fantastic clouds photographed from the plane on our flight back to Denver from Phoenix.

A curious prairie dog outside Fudruckers in Thornton.

In knitting news, I've got yarn! Oh yeah, some beautiful silk for a lucky someone across the country (for you, swappee) and some lofty merino for me. The merino happens to be the discontinued Jaeger Extra Fine Merino Aran purchased from Cucumberpatch in Laurel. It is expected to morph into a Tubey in a couple of months. Again, the lack of a camera may prevent me from showing just how gorgeous this stuff is but take my word for it. It's soft, well-rounded and possibly machine wash (not that I'll ever throw one of my hand-knits into the machine). More on how it knits up when I begin.

Happy September!
