I'm Baaaack!

Here I am back from vacation (last week) and thought I should be doing some serious updating. While I was away on the beautiful shores of Lake Huron I visited Philosopher's Wool. Stunning colours for those that like working with pure wool. Their farm/home/store is brilliantly organized and very welcoming. For those that are in the area I strongly suggest visiting them, however, she did tell me they would be at the knitting fair in KW in September.

I know some of you may be wondering why I am not posting pictures as promised. Well it is kinda a long story but needless to say the camera is broken and going back to Future Shop for replacement or repair. Please stand by.

What is on the needles you ask? Well, finished pink poncho for DN3 and it turned out perfect, only problem was finding a ball of Bella to finish fringe. Have made 4 of the umbilical cord hats from SNB book and am TOTALLY addicted to them, I just can't stop. I am also working on a scarf for a Christmas gift from the "Little Book of Scarves". Beautiful book/kit, I strongly suggest this, wonderful patterns. Still have not repaired Mission Falls sweater and have not frogged too small sweater for hockey player daughter. DN1 still wants a poncho or shawl so I guess I should start one for her. That's about it although I must say I am thoroughly enjoying this summer and love the cooler temperatures, lack of "poor air quality" days and no hydro threats (no one is using their a/c). So as un-Canadian as this sounds, too bad.

Knitting Forever,
Housework Whenever

I saw Philosopher's Wool at the CSNF show about five years ago and fell in love with their simple method of Fair Isle. I have a kit languishing in my stash and hope to get to it this fall.

Hello - I would like to move you to the GTA Knit Blog Ring, but the html code is not on your first page. Once you inserted the code and changed the id from '1' to your member id, let me know, and I will add you.

Glad to hear you had a good vacation.
