Catching up

It's been awhile.  I have been without a camera and to be honest, it is so easy to instagram; you take a picture and boom it is posted. However, I do like to keep track of my day to day or should I say week to week or worse yet, month to month knitting and other types of goings on. Anyway, I will try to do better now that my camera is back.

Just a random group of pictures to show you what has been going on here. Hope everything is going well with all of you.

May Sock Challenge

I am joining in on Buckaloo Sock Challenge.  These are my May socks and I am a bit late, AGAIN.  But better late than never.  I have the first sock in June's challenge almost done so perhaps I will be on time for June's pair.

Wednesday Musings

May has been a busy month.  There has been some knitting.  Finished The Barn Sweater earlier in the month and just finished Blithe two days ago.  I will post pictures of both soon, unfortunately, my camera is out of commission so I just have some pictures from two weeks ago.  I thought I would share them.

The gorgeous Victorian Home is a Bed and Bed Breakfast called The Blomidon Inn in Wolfville, Nova Scotia.  I just love this house.

I am now going through wool in my stash and trying to find patterns that would suit.  I always enjoy this part of the process but it does take a lot of time.  I am thinking perhaps another summer top, or the Canopy shawl by bmandrines and of course I will cast on another pair of socks.

What are you up to?

End of April

I forgot to post this last week but decided to do it this week anyway.  This was from April 27, early last week.  We still had lots of snow in our yard and had a light snowfall in the morning as you can see below.  It did not last for more than a few hours, thank goodness.  This week, it is full on spring.  We have had sun with temperatures in the low 20'sC.  Most of the snow is now gone and living is starting to move outside.  I love this time of year.

I finished my Barn Sweater and am just waiting for buttons.  I love it.  It fits really well, I love the colour and it was a joy to knit.  I am thinking of a black or charcoal grey for fall.

I did finish these socks.  They were for Buckaloo View sock challenge and I did not finish until Sunday, May 3 and just posted last night.  As I said, these last few weeks got away from me. We have had computer issues and installed a new photo program which took awhile to figure out.  I am not that experienced when it comes to these things. I like it when things stay the same!

Anyway, that sums up what is going on around here.  I will be back soon with what I am working on now.  Around here, we are all following the sun.
