Hi Everyone! I’m taking a little break from the shop this week to pursue my other passion: archaeology! I’m participating in a dig of an 18th century homestead site on the banks of the Damariscotta River.
A lot of people think of Indiana Jones when they think of archaeology. While Indy can be just a wee bit careless at times (destroying entire ancient temples), and seems to have a slight disregard for the archaeological method (Where’s your trowel, Indy?), one cannot deny that he’s a very dashing figure. I think it’s the fedora, and I may have to knit myself one sometime soon. There’s a great pattern by Kristi Holaas on Ravelry, and Cascade 220 would be perfect.
I don’t expect any Nazis, golden idols or crystal skulls on this dig, but you never know. Maybe I should pack a bullwhip and revolver, just in case. See you next week!
