One finish and Several Adventures

 This morning I was sitting at the computer and happened to look out the window and saw a deer stroll by! No photo, though as we were too slow getting outside to the front yard. Its antlers had two prongs! 

I do have a finish to share, however.  It popped off the needles this morning and is a small hat, just the right size for a preemie. I still have some of this yarn left (Hayfield Bouquet) which should be enough for a third one which has already been cast on. I just love this yarn; it's so much fun to see how the "flowers" turn out and where they "land."

We are trying to keep up our walking routine even though it's really been warm here. Weeklong temperatures in the nineties are quite unusual on this side of our state.  To avoid the heat a few days ago, we went to Coulon Beach and walked along the water. We were awarded to see a great shot of Mount Rainier, two turtles sunbathing in the water, and an eagle flying overhead.

We also went to Port Angeles, this time without a snow storm.  We continued our exploration of the Olympic Discovery  Trail and also went to Hurricane Ridge where we hiked on several trails.  We saw lots of deer and some snow.

Look at the heart-shaped snow!

This deer made walking in the snow look easy.

These two deer ran across the road. Luckily they survived the traffic!

Lots of folks hiked up this trail. However, we did not!

That's about it for our recent adventures. Hope you've all had a great weekend.

The hat is adorable! Several years ago, I had some similar yarn - lots of fun to knit.

Snow? Did you say snow? I would LOVE to see some snow right about now. The hat is darling. I used to have some yarn like that way back when. It was fun seeing the little flowers emerge.

I try to keep my daily walking routine going, it makes for a happy day. I only see other people's dogs or maybe a squirrel or rabbit. It's still nice to breathe some fresh air and to be out!!

That baby hat is adorable. That has to be the cutest yarn ever.

Good for you for keeping up walking. This heat here has been kicking our butts. We walk a bit, but not very far and not very fast.

We went to Port Angeles and Hurricane Ridge but the day we were there, the trails were loved because there were bears!
