Afghans for Afghanistan, circa 2005 (Sutton)

Bouquet of Blankets Hoo Boy. I have moved twice since this collection of afghans was sewn up, recorded and mailed off I *still* love the ladies @ Mason-Dixon Knitting, a whole lot There have been a lot of swimming lessons, soccer practices, report cards (grr) and Parent-Teacher nights since then, too:: (Oh, look at those lovely boys.) I am *still* organizing things by hanging them in re-usable grocery bags off closet doors, apparently... Plus ça change... And: Now Miss Zoé is 10. And I knit on, I knit on...

25 000 tuques

Article du HuffPost QC
Mes twoques ont l'air un peu minimalistes (LOL) mais elles ont été tricotées vite (score) de ma laine de stash (double score) ... l'article ci-dessus de catherine lavarenne le dit très bien; j'ai décidé de participer à 25,000 tuques parce que, venir au canada pendant l'hiver pour commencer une nouvelle vie, est tout simplement inimaginable... oui je suis un crazy, crazy tricoteuse inveterée. j'assume.

May 4th:: d'autres prix à gagner!

Among the wonderful prizes, donated by local businesses for this draw, is a gift certificate from the wonderful bakery in Dunham, Laperle et son boulanger. Je me sens très chanceuse, d'avoir adopté cette région (ou est-ce que la région nous a adopté? Depuis le temps qu'on louait la maison sur le chemin Bruce, à Dunham... On n'arrive pas à la quitter!)

me, knitting in the sun

it was really, a lovely day
*much* too nice to be cooped up , everyone was outside, enjoying temps. over zero and the gorgeous sunlight

i caught a few rays on the chaise long in a generously-dug out spot in the yard and finished 2 things! my incredibly big (!) ball of spit-spliced rainbow wool and the heel on my uncle's second sock. (pictured: sock the first.) 

if i don't want la cabane to be this empty, though, for my next workshop, i'll have to make some changes!
