A Fine Week

Branches of green and yellow maple intertwine overhead as we walk the trails of Hemer Park.

I was off work last week.  I took some time to knit (how surprising) and take some different walks.  I had wanted to go to Knit City in Vancouver – but family obligations took that time.

But it was still a great week.

I finished a new shawl.  It looks good for a workshop in the Spring.  It still needs the ends woven in and blocked – but I have it draped over my shoulders right now.  It is knit with Zealana Rimu 4-ply.  A merino/possum blend that is lightweight and warm!  I also finished off a couple of small projects for classes and patterns for the Fall class schedule and I finally got a “hold” of the next KAL idea – and started to knit the sample.  I ordered more beads from Firemountain Gems.  I needed more beads for the KAL.  Life is shiny!  Knitting wise it was a very good week.

We walked through Hemer Park, Englishman River Park, Piper’s Lagoon – several times at Piper’s – the weather was just so glorious and it looks so good in the sunshine!  It also looks great in the rain and wind as the waves crash in and the gulls swoop overhead.

The slideshow is of Hemer Park.  It was a grey day.  There was no wind and the air was clear and quiet.  The marsh was inhabited by ducks and they cruised away as I was trying to take some pictures – Sophie helped keep the ducks moving – she was too interested in those moving targets!

Fall colours in abundance!

Both the surface of the marsh and the surface of Holden Lake were mirror calm – it was wonderful – the reflections were perfect!

I love watching the changes in the trees during the fall.  This year there is more colour than in previous years as the rains held off for what seemed like months!  Usually once the rains hit – the leaves are knocked off the trees and you get darn little colour!

Happy Knitting
