knitting ... chunky lace shrug

I made this chunky lace shrug for my sister. It did turn out a little bit bigger than I wanted, 
but otherwise I am very happy with it. Here is the one I made for myself...
I love this, because the structure of this shrug is about as easy as can be! It is knit in a long rectangle,
with the sides stitched up to made the arm holes. So really, you can do any kind of knit pattern! 
I have also made one for my mom and I am sure I will make more, trying different patterns.
Also, I enjoyed making this with chunky yarn, as it took even less time to work up.

photography | exploring red rocks

A few weeks ago, my mom, sister and I took a trip to see Needtobreathe and Switchfoot 
at Red Rocks Amphitheater (in Morrison, Colorado).

Because we stayed the night after the concert, we decided to spend the next day exploring 
more around Red Rocks. We had a lot of fun and I would definitely recommend seeing a 
concert at Red Rocks or just hiking around, if you ever have the opportunity. It is free to go 
into the park and in the amphitheater (before an event, of course). Warning: It takes climbing 
steep ramps and A LOT of steps to reach the top of the amphitheater BUT it is so worth it 
to see the most stunning views everywhere you look!!

(Denver Cityscape in the distance)

(This was only the beginning of the steps.... Whew!)

(Huge red rocks surround both side of the stage... Such an amazing venue!!)

(I had to take a photo of this photo in the museum, because I thought it was so cool!
The caption explains a bit of the history of Red Rocks!)

(A lot of people come here to get a work out... It's a good place for that!)

(It is amazing to be in the midst of such huge rocks all around... God's creation is so awesome!)

(We spotted a fox.)

Such beauty everywhere... This is why I love where I live and why I took so many photos!
Thank you God for this amazing gift.

tour de compadres... needtobreathe & switchfoot

On Tuesday, my sister, mom and I went to see Needtobreathe and Switchfoot at Red Rocks Amphitheater!!! It was so incredible to see my two favorite bands in such an amazing venue. In order to get up to the amphitheater you have to walk up a couple of steep ramps and several stairs... But it is worth the "work-out" to see the stunning views everywhere you look. There are huge red rocks all around and there are beautiful mountains and the city in the distance. It was amazing to watch the sun set as Switchfoot played. And when Needtobreathe played, after it rained, there was an amazing lightning show right above the stage... SO AMAZING!!

We did some exploring around Red Rocks the next day, so I will share more photos soon...
