Ridges . . .

I have managed in an all-out flurry to design & knit these Ridges mitts!

An addition to Altitude Ridges Cowl, Ridges Mitts are pretty monumental in that they set precedent for additional hand accessories for two remaining of All Three Cowls.

These cowls & mitts are designs I am really working hard to put together in time for holiday knitting ~~ so feel free to check out the pattern on Yarnings HERE or on Ravelry HERE.

So now I’ll leave you with lots of photos from our hike up to the peak this morning. This photo taken from my latest secret rock outcropping near the peak,  facing northerly and  overlooking from the ridge in the direction of middle Napa Valley (around Yountville & Oakville)

On the way down from the peak,  this panorama overlooking southerly at distant San Francisco Bay Area (left of center) and Mt. Tamalpais (right of center) . . . and if you look closely. . .

you’ll see buildings rising up through fog,  behind the distorted mirage-like zoom view over the bay and marsh land , and you can see the city of San Francisco itself  which is about 50 miles away by crow.

Beyond that, Autumn is picking up it’s pace here, and getting the first real blustery cold day for the mountain. Emma and I have been walking a lot more mornings in the week to the peak, and enjoying ourselves thoroughly.

Oh , I forgot to mention, the first photo at the top of post right at the start of hike,  looking South East in the direction of Mt. Diablo (the double-crested mountains)  Of course, the purpose of this morning’s  photo-hike was to capture my local ridges to accompany latest pattern ~ Altitude Ridges Mitts !
