It's a Wrap (and Turn)

Spring Break 2016 is almost over. It has been varied in many ways. 

Several iterations of snow (interspersed with some nicer days):

(The farmer and I are posing with his sister's dog!)

A trip to northern Virginia to celebrate my sister-in-law's 40th birthday with a winery tour:

The views inside and out were pretty amazing.

(I may have enjoyed too much wine...)

Finally, plenty of mindless knitting in the form of a new shawl (pattern: Color Affection) using yarn from the alpacas in our foundation herd: Bella, Moonstar, and Greta. The section I am working on features a technique called wrap and turn to achieve the rising stripe look; hence the title of this post.

Oh yes, and I had the opportunity to play in the Indianapolis Symphony Teacher Side-by-side Concert directed by Vince Lee. Mahler Symphony No. 1 plus a pizza and beer break between rehearsal and concert. Everyone was happy! How could you not be?

Back to work tomorrow, and hopefully spring will resume, too. Wrap and turn.
