Highlands #2

So 2nd instalment….

One day, we had a day trip to the Isle of Skye. The journey there is just so picturesque.

We’d heard about a coral beach right at the top of the Isle of Skye. It was so pretty and the sea was turquoise.

And it really was made of coral.

Those mitts came in handy when we were up a mountain. How about this for extreme knitting?

Mr has got some wear out of a vest I made him. I made it quite some time ago but it was one of those projects that went a bit wrong. It recently went under some sweater surgery and it’s now a firm favourite.

Pattern: Laredo Ravelry project page. There’s more detail on the surgery on the project page.

Mr has a thing about balancing rocks. I think it’s to occupy him while I take numerous photos.

Pretty cool though.

Oh and another yarn shop trip. On the way down, we went to Stirling Castle and happened to drop into McAree Brothers in Stirling.
