Behind on the blog again. This time around, I'll blame the holiday season and a trip to Hawaii. I spent a week with the family in Hawi, on the northern tip of Hawaii Island (aka the Big Island).
Aside from the beautiful weather, my favorite part of the island was the plant and animal life. Beautiful birds and flowers everywhere, plus these little darlings were abundant at the house where we stayed:
That's a Gold Dust Day Gecko. Isn't he lovely? I have lots more photos to share, once I get around to processing them. Soon, soon...
I did manage to get some knitting done, including developing a new hat pattern. The design was inspired by Fischer, my 7 month old nephew who I met for the first time on this trip. Fischer's parents are commercial fishermen, and Fischer made his first forays into the waters of Alaska shortly after his birth. So this hat is for him. (Yes, I knit him a hat of his own, but he hasn't received it yet, so no pictures of cute babes in fish bone hats just yet.)
Babies involved in commercial fishing being a rarity, Fischer has already received notice for his exploits on the sea.
