Green cabled hat – and a trip to Europe

It’s been quite a while since my last post here…I went to Europe at the end of August for a little over two week vacation.
I first flew to Stockholm and spent a couple of days exploring the city, then flew on to Budapest, just in time to get there for my older nieces’ wedding. The event turned out just as they planned, the guests appeared to enjoy themselves as well, it was a beautiful summer day – and I took over 800 photographs. Which is partly the reason why I have been absent here – I am slowly working my way through the gigantic digital pile of pictures.
But back to the trip – after the wedding I left for my old school town, Sárospatak, in the north-eastern part of Hungary, to meet up with some of my high school class mates. Due to the fact that the wedding was in August, I was not able to go back for our 30 year high school reunion at the end of May, so this was my “make-up” for the missed reunion.
Then my brother, sister and brother-in-law picked me up in Sárospatak, and we drove to Slovakia to spend a couple of days exploring some historic towns, castles and the Tatra mountains.
This was my vacation in a nutshell – I am hoping to carve out some time to upload some photos and write a bit more in detail about trip, and hopefully post some pictures from the wedding as well.

The knitting project I completed while traveling was this green cabled hat for Michael. The yarn – Juniper Farm Farm Moonshine – is amazing. It is so soft, and the color I used, Forest, is a gorgeous deep green shade. I will definitely use this yarn again for a future project.
If you would like the details of the hat, you can find it on my Ravelry page.
