Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

The Vail Knitting Tour


Mom, this one’s for you!

This is the Four Corner Hat.  It’s knit with Dale of Norway Tiur.

Isn’t this Handsome Prince in training cute?

Only in Vail would you find a metal fire sculpture.  I think it’s a working fire, hooked up to a gas line.

Albert Einstein was stylin’ too!

And the flowers…there are gorgeous flowers everywhere.

This guy is guarding our hotel.  I feel so much safer knowing that.

This one made me laugh.  I guess the Porta-Potties were in the wrong place at this construction site.  A huge crane was relocating them.

And the proud recipient, My Hero.  I don’t know if I like it on him or not, but he’ll probably lose it the first time he wears it anyway!

Tomorrow, we’re home, and on Monday the kids start school.  And Ishbel is done.  Blocking on Monday!

  1. Who would have thought that Vail had so many models of this variety? (chuckle)I don’t suppose your Hero would consider a braided tie to help the hat stay with its gifted owner? Because I don’t ski, Vail is much prettier to me in the summer than in the Winter! Safe trip home and sanity through getting everyone off to school!

  2. Even when you travel Maria, you treat us to such delicacies!!! You are MY hero – the depth and beauty of your work, NOT TO MENTION the sheer magnitude of what you COMPLETE astonishes me!!!! How do you do it? Have you got elves in your employ that are knitting every moment of the day?!!!!!
    I posted the beginings of a new baby quilt using an old Moda – I’d love your feedback. Am having troubles with my blog though. I need to get a tech person over here, pronto!

  3. Great hat! I’m looking forward to seeing the blocked Ishbel soon.

    Your projects are always an inspiration.

  4. You are the most prolific knitter ever! You are my hero, too, for your tenacity. I get fired up and produce a lot of knitted things then I sort of peter out for a while, or some other shiny object catches my eye-like sewing, crocheting or some such thing.

    Good work, girl. Oh, your trip pics are super too.

  5. I always love it when Your Hero models your knitting projects! He’s such a good sport!

    What is Vail in summer like? I’ve never thought of it as any kind of summer destination. It must,however, be less humid than where I’m at!

    Your knitting is, as always, just gorgeous. Can’t wait to see the shawl!

  6. What a great way to personalize your trip! Thanks again for sharing.
