Yarny Goodness!

Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

Lazy (non knitting) Days

Posted by Amber on August 19, 2008

This past weekend was my mom’s birthday!

So we went on a little vacation:

(A moderately sized hill to walk up…)

England?  Not quite…


Foamhenge is an exact replica of Stonehenge, created entirely of styrofoam!  How cool is that?!  It’s on the way to Natural Bridge State Park (our original destination).

We did make it to the natural bridge.

Directly under the bridge.

There is a whole replica Native American village just a short walk from the bridge.

We took the scenic route to get there (the Blue Ridge Parkway), by way of Crabtree Falls:

We only made it to the lower falls, it was like a two mile hike up to the upper falls.  Maybe another day, when we aren’t trying to get to another park.

But very pretty, and a great way to give my breaks a rest coming DOWN the parkway.  (Dear self: Don’t ride brakes down a hill.)
