Rest, Relaxation and Crochet

One of our favorite things to do is go camping.  Not the roughing it, sleep in a tent on the cold hard ground camping because according to my former military boyfriend, his days of tenting it are long over.  We enjoy an actual bed, electricity, and a fully functioning toilet and shower in our 2006 Jayco Jayflight travel trailer.

This weekend was our annual “friends” camping trip. It’s that one trip a year where it’s adults only, no kids, no grandkids, and no dogs.  Nothing but relaxation, good alcohol, good food and good laughs with some of our closest friends at our favorite place, Flint Creek Water Park & Campground in Wiggins, MS.  The campground is beautiful, well kept with lots of shaded trees and lots of space between campsites for privacy.    This trip we managed to reserve one of the prime spots on what we call “The Point”, spot #60.  It has direct water access, lots of room to spread out and an amazing sunrise view.

Good Morning Beautiful World

What a view to wake up to and crochet too.  It was so relaxing to sit there with this in front of me, the soft cool breeze blowing, the sound of the water lapping softly on the tiny little beach, and the birds singing “Good Morning”.  I had not a care in the world besides what pattern I was going to use to make my daughter some headbands for Christmas.  I chose the Easy Shell Headband by Andromeda’s Fiber’s Studios.  My daughter asked for pink so I used some yarn that I had picked up at an estate sale a while back, Red Heart Soft Touch in pink with an H hook to complete this simple pattern that produced a nice headband in about 20 minutes.  I had no problems with this pattern at all and love the finished piece.  I will definitely make more of these in different colors for both my daughter and myself.

I also brought a couple of WIPs with me to break the monotony of headband work; a cardigan that I’m hoping to get finished for Christmas and a slouchy hat, but no peeks until I’m done with them.
