Barrison’s Travels: SoCal Summer Vacation

After a busy summer, and before an even busier fall, Barrison joined me for a long weekend in Southern California. The weather was perfect and Barrison was beach ready! She knit an adorable pink bikini on the plane using Berroco Weekend. Then she added an orange flower with some scrap Berroco Weekend Chunky that I had in my carry-on.

With so much to see and only a few days to spend, Barrison’s SoCal summer vacation wasn’t exactly relaxing, but it was a lot of fun! Flip through her scrapbook to see all of the photos from Barrison’s trip.
